and now for a musical interlude

Hi there!  I hope you’re enjoying Dropping Slow, and if you haven’t yet donated to either the Sharon the Light website directly or to my CrowdRise, that you’ll consider it!  Just scroll down to any of the Dropping Slow entries and click the links.

I asked on Facebook if anyone might be interested in my Dropping Slow playlist, and a number of enablers said yes.  So if you click the link, you can play the music I’ve been associating with this story for over a year, and that I’ve been playing on repeat as I revise and add scenes.  Some of them are very character or plot oriented; some of them just sound right (if that makes sense to anyone but me). I’m including the track list below for anyone not on Spotify, so you can (to paraphrase Lin-Manuel Miranda) compile it on your music listening thingie of choice, if you would like.  (We own all of these, Scott, so have fun in iTunes!)

I also very much underestimated my word count (math is not my thing), so the posts will probably get longer this week and next.  I may spill over into July; we’ll see.

So, again, thanks for reading and for liking, and thanks to those of you who have donated!

*I originally stuck this song on there as a joke, and then it occurred to me … well, Javi played it a lot before Tace left as a joke, and then sort of drowned himself in it for, like, a month after she deployed. He will never, ever admit this to anyone.  Lin totally knows, though.  (Yup, Tom Jones will survive us all in this universe.  Him and Ursula K. LeGuin.)

I read (you can check out my Goodreads if you want; it's linked on my blog). I write (I’ve been published in Cicada, On Spec, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Betwixt, Metaphorosis, Gallery of Curiosities, The Cassandra Project; the stuff that’s available online is linked on my blog). I plan for the inevitable zombie apocalypse and welcome the coming of the gorilla revolution. Or the anarchist rabbits. Whichever happens first. (I also blame my husband for basically everything.)
