Today is November 1st. Which means that it is the start of NaNoWriMo. It’s a yearly event that comes around every November where folks from all across the globe give it their all to write an entire novel in 30 days. I had been debating whether or not I should throw my hat in the ring and participate because I had never tried to do doing anything this ambitious before. But after some good old fashion psyching myself up, I determined that it would be a good learning experience. So Wish me luck with that. Cause I am sure I am going to need it.

Which brings me to my choice for today’s Music to Get Lost In. As you might already know I like to have a soundtrack going in the background while I do my writing. It helps to keep me focused. It’s part of my writing ritual in a sense. And so I was looking for just the right song that would serve as a de facto theme song for my story. After surfing the web sampling a few new tracks as well as some old ones, I came across The Smashing Pumkins – “1979″, from their third album, Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness.

It is suffice for me to say that this song was a personal favorite when it was released back in 1996. And after listening to the lyrics and watching the video I feel pretty confident that it correlates very well with the theme of my story.

So for those that just want to take a little trip down memory lane, or if you are one of those poor young deprived kids that never heard this classic 90’s track, sit back, relax, and enjoy the tune.
