Story Insight: Savage Possession

I get asked a lot whether there's pieces of me in the characters and stories I write. The answer is definitely YES and sometimes it's not on purpose. Reading through what I'd recently written on Savage Possession, I came across this snippet and it instantly put a lump in my throat. Sometimes things happen in our lives that leave us feeling like Darcy does … broken, faulty, incomplete. It's easy to believe we'd done something wrong or that we've failed. Just remember--things happen for a reason and it NEVER changes who we truly are or how LOVED we are by those around us. Don't let disappointment and fear rock your foundation.

It's fitting then that I have Don't Give Up by Peter Gabriel on this story's playlist.

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up.

I LOVE the version by Pink and John Legend:

Happy Friday, everyone! 
Keep being BRAVE and CONQUER your world!
