haystacks

And all my bones began to shake, my eyes flew open

Okay, my novel is more chick lit than romance. And I'm okay with that. Really, I am. I just... don't like arrogant assholes, and that's basically the love interest in every romance out there. Fortunately, I just hit 25,000 words written this month (about 4k on this novel), so hey! I'm not a total failure.

While writing tonight I developed a newfound appreciation for the song "Blinding" by Florence + the Machine. I mean, I love her entire album (BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR), but that song-- oh my god. I want it to be played at my funeral. If that isn't a compliment, I don't know what is. (Click to listen on YouTube.)

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world
