sometimes i find myself alone at night

Posted on Posted in journal, shadow queen

The proofread is done, long live the proofread.

Technically I shouldn't celebrate quite yet, since my editor hasn't told me there's nothing else I need to look at and please send it all back now, but that stack of tagged and tricksome pages has been systematically slashed through with red pen and denuded of tags, which makes me happy. Not to mention a little giddy.

And very, very conscious that the stories next in line to work on have no outline. I've been revising for so long, it's a little daunting to contemplate going back to writing without knowing what happens next.

In the department of "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means", I discovered a fantastic thesaurus program the other day: TheSage.

Since I'm reaching the end of my input on Shadow Queen, it's probably an appropriate time to post the playlist I used to listen to while writing this novel.

In no particular order (since I listened to this list on shuffle):

Interestingly, I didn't listen to these songs at all during the revision process, or the publication edits, and they don't match my mood for the sequel, either. Except for ORZ's "Golem", which will definitely feature on the sequel's playlist.

  1. Well done! And double well done – I don't recognise a single person or song from your playlist! I was glad to see DAAS feature prominently in your wordle set though 🙂

  2. Jan, I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that you don't recognise any of my playlist. You've never heard of Elliott Smith? Seriously?

    And as for DAAS…*happy sigh* good ol DAAS. I do still love me my DAAS.

  3. Alright, you caught me – I recognise the *names* of some of the artists as syllables I have heard pronounced together, but I have no idea what any of the music sounds like.
