Sisters Red Soundtrack + NaNoWriMo!!!!!

Alrighty then! I honestly don't know why I've waited this long, but I've finally posted the rest of the Sisters Red Soundtrack onto Youtube. The last three songs are "Plato", "Scarlet's Theme", and "Rosie's Theme".

Here's "Plato":

Just visit my channel to see the rest. Also, again, sorry for the long spaces of emptiness afterwards. When I upload it, it's supposed to end when the song does, but it turns out like this. So, weird.

ANYWAY, NaNoWriMo is ALMOST HERE!!!!!!!!!

I'm spazzing! In case you don't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The actual thing didn't start until a couple of years ago. has been going strong for some time, and thousands (maybe millions, I don't know) sign up to write an entire. Novel. In. A. Month. 50,000 words is the exact point, I think. No editing. No revising. A lot don't even read what they've written until they finish.

It's the most insane, hardship of creative inspiration ever.... And I've never done it.

I actually just found out about it last year when several of the bloggers I'm subscribed to started talking about it. It was weird. I thought "What the booty does NaNoWriMo mean?" So I looked it up. I realized what it was, thought it was cool, but couldn't do it yet because it was already into November.


Lately I've been having trouble with my current novel, and so I've decided to take a break from it and write an entire other novel for November. I actually write best when I write a lot, then have a break, then write a lot, then have a break. I don't understand it. I guess it's like a so-so girlfriend/boyfriend relationship: "I think we just need some time alone."

What's also really cool is that people in your area actually have write-ins, where y'all can meet up at a Panera or Starbucks or whatever and discuss each other's books and write. They also track your progress, and with their word counter tool you can make goals for every day, and they have pep talks from great authors that they e-mail you to boost your spirits as you trudge through the Dreaded Middle.

Well, so long and thanks for all the fish! I'm off to work on my outline!
