My writing playlist…

So anyways, you know how I told you last time that I’d trashed my novel and I was now writing three short novels – almost novella length? Well, it’s going well again – thanks for asking. It’s almost as if once I told Tiff and Alice that they’d have their own books – and wouldn’t need to wait for too long to get them – that they behaved. Now I can hear Callie loud and clear.

I can also hear Callie’s playlist – or mixed tape – more clearly – so of course I’m going to share it with you. Naturally, you can youtube or spotify or download or do whatever it is that you do to listen to music if you don’t know some of these songs. Some of you might be too young to know some of these songs – some of you won’t have even been born when a couple of these came out.

As an aside, I never knew that Manfred Mann’s Blinded By the Light was actually written by Bruce Springsteen. Now, there’s a little something for your useless book of knowledge. Yes, I was surprised too – not as surprised as I was to hear about real life zombie jellyfish, but that’s some trivia for another time. You’re welcome.
