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:
