Friday Fun and More

Hi, everyone!

Thanks to those of you who submit comments to the blog! You’ve given me some food for thought for future blog posts, and that’s the way I like it. I am hoping that together we have a dialogue about what matters to us. There’s definitely some “overwhelm” going on in our little creative community, and I know how that feels. Together, let’s get through it! I even received some information in my in-box this morning that I think will help, so I’ll share that next week.

In the meantime, it’s Friday, so let’s have some fun! I met Brooklyn James at a writers’ conference last year in Austin. I approached her because I wanted to know the secret to her toned arms (um, lift weights, Nadine), and we ended up having a lively discussion about books and writing.

She’s not only an emerging novelist, but a talented musician as well. Her first novel, The Boots My Mother Gave Me, is a touching coming-of-age-in-a-dysfunctional-family drama. She felt inspired to create a soundtrack as well, and recently made a music video, which I share with you today. I love Can’t Get It Right because I think it captures the complexity of the female experience. The scenes in the video make sense if you read the book, but the song stands on its own. Enjoy!
