So, I've reached about the halfway point of my novel for my independent study. The middle is, of course, the hardest part. My worries about not having enough plot are somewhat allayed. I'm so glad I made an outline before I got into the heavy drafting. Even though I've had to make some adjustments, it has been so helpful.
To celebrate my word count, here's a song for you all. Thinking ahead (way ahead: about three books, a publishing contract, and film rights from now) I think this is what I'd want the theme song to be if a series was ever made based off of my book(s).
The song is "One Tiny Thing" by 8 in 8, the bizarre super band made of Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman, Ben Folds, and Damian Kulash.
