Music: Frustrated when I tried to work on Losing It and every idea seemed like crap, I went on a bit of an iTunes shopping spree. I got a few songs from The Frey, The Used, Modest Mouse. And in a vastly different genre, a song by the Abrams Brothers. I usually don't like covers, especially when the cover artist/band doesn't make the song their own and does a shoddy job of copying the original. But then I heard this version of Coldplay's Viva la Vida and, well, it's catchy and the guys are like 17:

Mindset: The last few chapters of Losing It are kicking my butt. Each ending I come up with seems contrived, fake and generally icky. Witch's Shadow was much more fun to work on, but I still didn't make it to 1k. Sigh. However, I took my dog to the beach, worked out, cleaned the house, watched a movie....meh, sometimes you gotta be happy with 655. ;)

How's the writing going for you guys?

Word Count 1981

Incidently, that was also the year I was born.

I'm definitely feeling back on track, though it might take some doing to get me up to the goal of 31k for the month.

1981,eh? That was a good year. Indiana Jones, Journey's tune Don't Stop Believing, Calvin Klein jeans...and it's also a fantastic word count.

Oh Tracy... you make me laugh. Now I will be stuck with Journey in my head.... again. Have you see the premiere of GLEE? I am an addict and the show doesn't officially start until fall. Sigh.

Great word count, Awkward Librarian!

Me... um... zero. But I sent out about 100 media releases! (yeah, sure, cuz that counts...)
