Today I tried something different with my music/writing. I thought, “Hey, instead of doing a few long songs, I’ll load up a bunch of smaller songs and see how that works.” I was in the mood for it, because, well why not? My daughter and I watched a live stream of Coldplay in Chicago last night, and I felt like I wanted to keep that feeling I had late last night carry into this morning.
So I loaded up with the following in this order:
- O Valencia! The Decemberists
- Lovers in Japan (Osaka Sun Mix) Coldplay
- Escape Journey
- Under the Milky Way The Church
- Distant Sun Crowded House
- Head over Heels Tears for Fear
- Wonderous Stories Yes
- Lost Coldplay
- Ashes to Ashes David Bowie
- The Killing Moon Echo and the Bunnymen
- Metropolis The Church
- Viva la Vida Coldplay
And went to work.
The story is winding down. As I was told yesterday, “I bet you know exactly how the story will end,” and, yes, I do, but the trip today was a strange one because I was doing both scene and dialog trying to get the feeling across to the reader, and I got there. I think. I won’t know until my trusty reader goes over this section and gives me the thumbs up or down.
But I liked it. It felt good. The characters felt right. And I feels like I’m heading to the right conclusion. I might change things up just a little when I polish the story, but right now, I’m happy.
And what sort of production did I have today? I’d say it was very good: 1246 words in 53:19, or 1402 words/hour, which brings my story total up to just a tick under 12,000 words.
The Beat Went On today. Tomorrow I’ll switch into glide.
