Lyrics and Nine

This morning I sent chapter eight to the wonderful Nell for a critique, and am now over 1,000 words into chapter nine already. I wondered this morning if my progress has anything to do with the money I dropped into the wishing pond at Jamaica Inn (of Daphne du Maurier fame) when the sis and I went to Cornwall in September. Ever since I got back from there I've been steaming through my chapters...

Here are some lyrics from the Foo Fighters song "Generator". It's been a favourite of mine for a while now but I've only really listened to the lyrics properly recently. They remind me a little bit of my characters. (Oh yes, and it's now just over one month to go until the concert!)

Lately I'm getting better
Wish I could stay sick with you
But there's too many egos left to bruise
Call it sin, you can call it whatever
Eating deep inside of you
Well, if it were me it's all I'd ever do
Steal me now and forever
I'll steal something good for you
The criminal in me is no-one new
'Till you find something better
When there's nothing left to use
And everything starts going down on you
I'm the Generator, firing whenever you quit
Yeah, whatever it is -- you go out and it's on
Yeah, can't you hear my motored heart?
You're the one that started it
