A little step in the right direction.

So on Friday, I met an author--an
actual published author--who has offered to send my finished book to her agent.

After I pretty much picked myself up off the floor after hearing that, I decided I'd really better get crackin' on this whole writing thing. I wanted motivation, and now I have motivation.

Stay tuned...

I always said...

...that someday, an album--one that I'd listened to before, but had never really felt anything for--would hit me. I didn't know when, but I knew that it would.

Tonight is that "when."

There's a song on there that reminds me of Riley, of things that he will be thinking and doing toward the end of the book.

There are a couple songs there that remind me of Sasha.

All of these songs are gorgeous, just fucking gorgeous.

I wish it hadn't taken me so long to discover the absolute freakin' majesty of this album...regardless, I'm glad I finally did discover it.

Right here, right now, with a writing blitz ahead of me in the next few days, this album feels like the absolute perfect companion.
