Blog Tour: Author Intervieww/ Music Lyric Answer with Karen DellaCava of A Closer Look

 Author Interview w/ Music Lyric Answers
What do you snack on while writing? 
Gimme a break. Gimme a break. 
Break me off a piece of that KitKat bar. 
(Unfortunately Twizzlers don’t have a theme song).
What do you do to release stress when you have writers block? 
I get loud, I get loud 
Turn the music up to hear that sound 
I get loud, I get loud 
Ain't nobody gotta tell me 
What I gotta do 
(Let’s Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez slightly modifiied)

How was the journey from start to finish of publishing this book?
I’d listen as my day unfolds, challenge what the future holds, tried to keep my head up to the sky. 
Editors, they my cause me tears. I’d go ahead release my fears.
I’d stand up and be counted and not be ashamed to cry.
I had to be bad, I had to be bold, I had to be wiser.
I had to be hard. I had to be tough. I had to be stronger.
I had to stay cool. I had to stay calm. I had to stay together. 
(You Gotta Be by Des’ree slightly modified)
How did you feel when you got the call that A Closer Look was going to be published?
I’m walking on sunshine! (Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves) which then evolved to Oh, what a feeling. When we’re dancing on the ceiling. 
(Dancing on the Ceiling by Lionel Richie)
How emotional did you get while writing this book? 
I get so emotional, baby. Every time I think of you.--meaning Cass
(So Emotional by Whitney Houston)
Thanks, Trini!
