The Girls in the Band

As you know, I'm in the midst of editing Power Trio. I can see the finish line. It's right over there on the other side of this big ol' mud puddle. No big deal, right? I mean, I don't want to get dirty. I wish someone would come and carry me over there. But that's not going to happen, so I rolled up my pants and started walking. Only after jumping in with both feet did I realize that it wasn't mud; it was quicksand, and with each passing day I feel like I'm sucked in deeper.

Sorry for the melodrama (I am writing YA afterall), but I really do feel like I'm not making much progress. So, this morning I set my computer up at the kitchen table, instead of on my couch like usual, poured a big glass of Diet Coke, and got my soundtrack ready. The three main characters are in a band, so I love listening to music while I work. I thought I'd  take a moment to share the inspiration songs I used to create a Pandora station for each one:

Kay (lead vocals, guitar):

Addison (vocals, bass, keyboard):

 Sofie (drummer):

Sorry for the weird videos. I tried to find originals, but didn't have much luck. If you're intrested in more, here are the band websites:

Can't hug every cat

Can someone explain to me how it is that my boyfriend can't listen to me talk about cats for three hours straight, but he has no problem listening to this song three hours a day for an entire week? I have earplugs in, and I can still hear it. I think it's made a permanent impression in my brain.

I think the part of me that is a little bit of a crazy cat lady doesn't like people making fun of this, but then I watch that cat play on the keyboard and it's all worth while.

P.S. Pretty sure the original interview was a fake, but still a very entertaining song.
