Most of today's writing was taken up by some bickering between the female protagonist and the god that is the father of her child. It didn't start out to be an argument, but it sure ended up that way. The protagonist's father even appeared to try and convince her not to be pissing off the gods, but the protag is a bit stubborn. She'll move heaven and hell to retrieve her missing daughter, gods be damned.
Of course when the protag's father made an appearance, I had to scramble for a name for him. I have this thing about names, I can't just shove Bob in as a placeholder and move on, I have to have a right name or I can't move forward. It bogged me down for a while while I delved into Google and did some quick research. I allowed myself 10 minutes. I found a name with a good sound- nothing competing with the main characters – and a good meaning. I put it in place, ignoring the unease that comes from not being anal retentive about my name research. Yes, Bob the Internal Editor is alive and well and standing in my kitchen, drinking my coffee.
Soundtracks I'm working to: All three LOTR soundtracks compiled into one big playlist, The Keeper soundtrack (Nice Persian overtones), Gladiator soundtrack, Last of the Mohicans soundtrack, Navan (Gaelic a capella group), The Orange Tree (French Canadian tunes), Dean Martin's Greatest Hits, ('cause I'm .5 Italian), Blackhawk Down soundtrack, Bruce Cockburn 'Speechless' (kick butt guitar instrumentals). As you may notice, not much there with vocals. I've listened to Dean Martin so much I can tune him out, and Navan is in Gaelic, where I only know a few words, so I'm safe. I try and pick the soundtrack to go with the scene. LOTR seems to go well with a lot of scenes, but sometimes I find myself visualizing the scene from LOTR that the music was from. That tells me I need to stop watching those movies so much, and find some other soundtracks.
What music do you work to, if any?
