Progress Report

Yes, it’s that time again.

I’m giving myself a hard deadline and now I have to meet it, because it’s written down and this is apparently the only way I get things done. So, second draft of the not-a-fairy-story is due April 15th, in time to start querying in May. God, that sounds practically un-doable. I guess I’d better get on it.

In other news, my YA romance now has a playlist, which means the book must actually be happening. And I don’t just mean a handful of songs I enjoy listening to, but a true, specific playlist that belongs to it, like it was a real, independent entity. Musically, the story looks like:

  1. Miami – Counting Crows
  2. Boys on the Radio – Hole
  3. Gold Mine Gutted – Bright Eyes
  4. Half a World Away – R.E.M.
  5. Time Won’t Let Me Go – The Bravery
  6. Siren – Tori Amos
  7. Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam – Nirvana
  8. Of a Broken Heart – Zwan
  9. Breathe Me – Sia
  10. Am I Wrong – Love Spit Love
  11. Motion Picture Soundtrack – A String Quartet Tribute to Radiohead
  12. 9 Crimes – Damien Rice
  13. Look on Down from the Bridge – Mazzy Star
  14. Motion Picture Soundtrack – Radiohead (live)

Wow, this is going to be the most depressing story ever (but I swear it’s not).
