After yet another rejection from yet another agent, I've decided to change my Getting Published Theme Song.
Previously, my theme song was "Take a Chance on Me" by ABBA.
(shown here in its original glory)
My new Getting Published Theme Song is.....drumrolllllllll......"I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" by Diana Ross and the Supremes!
(live performance here with Ms. Ross and Stevie Wonder as a youngin.)
I don't know if any other writers have had luck with theme songs per se, but I really think having one is helpful for me. That way I can play it in my car and sing it to myself when I feel discouraged. I mean, I had a Teacher Survival Theme Song about six years ago, which was "Surviver" by Destiny's Child and it basically kept me from quitting. So, I think theme songs are important. I'd recommend getting one, if you don't already have one.
If you happen to pick the song "When I See You Smile," I'd recommend this version.
Not this one.
