courtneycracked up to be, music, volcanoes, writing

So I’m really into Tega & Sara which is strange, because for the last five or so years I thought they were just okay and couldn’t really warm to their voices and songs but then I listened to The Con like, 100 times in two days and now I’m completely hooked and I’ve ordered So Jealous and The Con from amazon and I can’t wait til they get here. In between waiting I’m just like, wait, what. What has happened here?


It’s also really great to write to.

And at least I know these purchases won’t turn out like The Invisible, which is sitting on my television right now, mocking me.

In other news, I finished revisions for Cracked Up to Be for my rockstar editor, which was a really neat and fun experience. Now I need to figure out how to distract the part of my brain that is perpetually wondering what my cover will look like when that part happens. I’ve already got one plan of attack: I’m printing off my book and letting my parents read it for the first time. As soon as I know they are reading it I will stop cover-obsessing and start obsessing about whether or not they’ll love it. If they don’t love it, that is okay, just so long as they lie to my face and tell me that they do. I’m all growed up. I can handle it.

Tonight, on TVO, they had on a special about volcanoes and the magic of magma and lava and how much life it sustains and it was beautiful. I bet you didn’t know this, but I love volcanoes.
