Just a bit of an update.

We've finally settled into our new apartment. Cable and the net were turned on tonight and this weekend we're going to make curtains! I never realized how much of a cave our old place was compared to all the windows and sunlight here!

My walk to work is a solid twenty minutes whether it is rain, sleet or snow, but it's good exercise even if the wind nearly knocked me down today. Despite the time, my walk is really nice. We lucked out and moved into an apartment we could afford in the middle of a historic neighborhood...which was wow...how did we land this?? lol...All the homes around here are amazingly cool. I love looking at them as I go by them every day.

This is the view out the second floor of our place. *click to enlarge*




I took a brain break this week from writing. Out of the Depths was a grueling emotional story for me and I loved writing it, but it was quite draining. I'm excited to start my [livejournal.com profile] casestory this weekend! I have a really fun, intense idea that I'm giddy to start! I want people's hands to sweat reading it...heeee.

I always have music I listen to to when I write. I've recommended several artists. Air, DJ Shadow, UNKLE, Massive Attack, Radiohead, NIN. Does anyone have any other type of downtempo, electronia to rec? Not that NIN or Radiohead fit in that cat, but I'm just looking for good music to write to.

I've read a lot about Florence and the Machine --- is that something I should check out?

Does anyone have a mix they've uploaded anywhere that is good to listen to during writing?
