wirrn, FTW

Write-a-thon progress report 4

So after a Sunday of editing, writing, several phone calls and emails, and a face-to-face meeting (funnily enough at the same Thai restaurant where we came up with the original story ideas) my coauthor and I have solid drafts of two screenplays.

Soon they'll be in the hands of people who can give us feedback. I'm quite eager to hear their thoughts.

I think I'm going to take a night off from writing tonight to chill out, but after that, it's time to see if I can turn this momentum into some forward progress on the novel.

Music Monday: Siberian Doom!

Today's musical selection is Overhead, Without Any Fuss, the Stars Were Going Out by Station Disthymia. I haven't actually had a chance to listen to this complete album yet. The first song is over 34 minutes long. The other three are shorter. But I am liking what I have heard so far, and this band has three additional factors going for them:
1. They're from Siberia!
2. The album title is, Overhead, Without Any Fuss, the Stars Were Going Out. Clarke shoutout in my heavy metal. I likes.
3. Writing a 34+ minute song is surely a sign of something. I'll be quite curious to see if it holds up to repeat listens, but it may take me a few weeks to find out.

My attempts to embed the bandcamp music player are failing miserably, so if you want to have a listen, go to the Station Disthymia band camp page here: http://stationdysthymia.bandcamp.com/album/overhead-without-any-fuss-the-stars-were-going-out
