A very quick post, filed under Things Writers Can Learn from Music Videos: watch the video for “Titanium” by French DJ David Guetta featuring Australian singer Sia. Is it not a perfectly compact story, full of suspense, emotion, and surprise? I’d heard the song before, but I never imagined that the video would be so, well, good. How often do you watch a video and say to yourself, Now that should be a YA novel? (Maybe you said that after watching “Call Me Maybe,” I don’t know. But this one would be a better YA novel.)


It looks like the video isn’t embedding properly–sorry!
