I've spent the better part of this weekend rereading PPP, as it's been a while since I've laid eyes on the entire manuscript. My outline for revisions is completely done as of ten minutes ago, when I finished reading the very last chapter and a certain song came on my iTunes.
I always read and write with music on, and I usually forget about it, but for some reason, this song just fit too perfectly and I had to stop and listen.
The last scene of PPP ends in the pumpkin patch (naturally), when Noelle receives a surprise visitor who has come to return her shoe. Right when that scene begins, this song hit its stride. You know when you're in a certain mood and something comes on the radio or on shuffle that just matches what you feel exactly? That's what happened here. Another piece to add to my dream PPP soundtrack!
This is Danna Devotchka's wonderful "The Winner Is," from Little Miss Sunshine, one of my favorite movies.
P.S. Sorry for the delay on returning and replying to your comments... I will be on vacation for a week or so, but I catch up!
