It's bad that I keep thinking today is Thursday. Part of the reason is that Friday is a field trip and the carnival, so everything I need to get done at school this week needs to get done by tomorrow. That includes progress reports and lesson plans. We have a meeting during planning time today, so gah.

I realized last night that three of my four NaNo books all have the same model for a hero. What does this say, I'm not willing to give him more than a month?

I started making my soundtrack for the NaNo book, which is a road trip book. Here's some of the songs I chose. I tried not to be too on the nose with the road trip theme but there are some I just couldn't resist.

Running Down a Dream—Tom Petty

Beautiful Day—U2

Born to Run—Springsteen

Drove All Night—Roy Orbison


Dead or Alive—Bon Jovi

Life is a Highway—Tom Cochrane

Need You Tonight--INXS


Go Your Own Way—Fleetwood Mac

Keep the Car Running—Arcade Fire

Wake Up—Arcade Fire

Under the Milky Way Tonight--Sia

I threw in a couple of Adam Ant songs on there, too, since I had them ;)

AND of course you know that now I know how to fix my bodyguard book. Which--yay. But WHEN?

Cool list! Lucinda Williams -- I Just Wanted to See You So Bad. A lot of her stuff is trains and cars.

Fred keeps trying to get me to listen to her stuff. I'm just not a fan of her voice. I think music is going to play a bigger part in this book than I planned, though.
