Music By Which To Novel

21 November, 2010

So I’m behind on NaNo (by only 1,330 words, but still). I was actually ahead for the first half of the month, but this weekend has been kind of a mess. Friday night Harry Potter premiere, Saturday afternoon/evening Wrigleyville Classic, Saturday night/early morning board/card game party at our apartment, Sunday mid-day brunch. Very little sleep. It’s hard to write while you’re:

1. Covering your eyes because you don’t want to look at Ron’s splinched arm
2. Shivering through 2-6 layers of clothing while you watch your team get mauled
3. Trying to win a paper airplane making contest with one arm around your opponent and the other holding a plunger (I did win, btw).
4. Eating a bacon-butterscotch donut.

So, life or writing: the ever-present dilemma. Clearly, though, the solution to a low word count is MOAR PLAYLISTS. This is the one I’m using at the moment, and I have really no idea why:

1. Winter Song (Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson)
2. Brothers on a Hotel Bed (Death Cab for Cutie)
3. Samson (Regina Spektor)
4. Come Home (OneRepublic & Sara Bareilles)
5. Wild Horses (The Sundays)
6. Chelsea Dagger (The Fratellis)
7. Grace Kelley (Mika)
8. Empire State of Mind (Glee Cast)
9. Blame it on the Pop (United States of Pop 2009) (DJ Earworm)
10. Before it Breaks (Brandi Carlile)

Man I’m sleepy.
