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.
