I would love it if I could listen to whatever I wanted while writing/revising these scenes.  That would be FANTASTIC.

Unfortunately, I can't make it work for me.  Music of my choosing means not being able to move forward.  It means re-reading the same parts over and over again, writing new paragraphs, and then changing them back to what I had before.  Why does it have to be like this?  (There is no good answer, I realize.  I just suck.)

I'm finding more and more that I can't write Seth unless I'm listening to Staind's "Break the Cycle" or Social Distortion's "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell."  I have had moderate success with Stone Temple Pilot's "No. 4" and whatever it was that Dwayne put in my CD player yesterday.  But Radiohead?  The "Across the Universe" soundtrack I attempted today?  Oh, hells no.

In a fit of annoyance, I threw Staind on again.  I would have gone with The Killer's "Sam's Town" which was helpful for this story back in aught-seven, but I'm scared to risk it right now.  

I just have to keep reminding myself that this will all be over soon.  Yes. 

Oh, Aaron Lewis!  It truly has been a while since you've gone and f*cked things up just like you always do.  It would seem that I'm doing all that on my own by trying to avoid you.
