Theme Song for 2009

I heard something on the radio today and thought it was interesting …

If you could pick one song to represent you for 2009, what would it be?

I think for me, it would be Christina Aguilera’s “I’m a fighter.” It’s rather a mean song (which can apply to me at times), but overall, I think of strength and determination whenever I hear it.

If you’re unfamiliar with the song, have a listen:

This song inspires me. And it serves as a reminder that though it’s important to get along with people, in the end, I must do what I feel is right regardless of whether the population agrees with me or not.

And that, I think, is my overall goal for this year – to submit my writing, the writing from my heart, and hope for the best.

In fact, I read a quote over at 70 Days of Sweat that I thought truly applied to me:

Write what you want to read. The person you know best in this world is you. Listen to yourself. If you are excited by what you are writing, you have a much better chance of putting that excitement over to a reader. -Robin McKinley

And that’s what I’m going to do. I’ve been denying what I truly wanted to write for too long. I read romance/chick-lit. I will write romance/chick-lit and I will get over my snooty attitude about the genre and do what’s in my heart.

Period. And if people in my life don’t like that, listen to the above song.

Please. 🙂
