NaNoWriMo Once and Again.

Last November I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and was a winner. This was the first time since I was in middle school (7th grade maybe) that I had completed anything I had started writing.

The Moods of Songs: I See Fire

Song 12 of 12

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin's son

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

The Moods of Songs: All I Want

Song 9 of 12

All I want is nothing more
To hear you knocking at my door
'Cause if I could see your face once more
I could die a happy man I'm sure

The Moods of Songs: Break My Bones

Song 8 of 12

You can say what you like

A thousand times

The Moods of Songs: Antidote

Song 7 of 12

Finding refuge in my own lies
How are you I'm doing alright
Small talk is a great disguise
Just let me be just let me be
Empty thoughts start to crowd my mind
Am I only living, living to survive?
Shake it off but I've lost the drive
Just let me be just let me be
let me be okay

The Moods of Songs: Almost Lover

A Fine Frenzy
Song 6 of 12

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

The Moods of Songs: Maybe

Song 5 of 12

I don't wanna be the one to say goodbye
But I will, I will, I will
I don't wanna sit on the pavement while you fly
But I will, I will, oh yes I will
'Cause maybe in the future, you're gonna come back

The Moods of Songs: Between The Lines

Song 4 of 12

Time to tell me the truth
To burden your mouth for what you say
No pieces of paper in the way
Cause I can't continue pretending to choose
The opposite sides on which we fall
The loving you laters if at all

The Moods of Songs: Near To You

Song 3 of 12

He and I; had something beautiful
But so dysfunctional it couldn't last
Loved him so, but I let him go
'Cause I knew he'd never love me back

The Moods of Songs: Let It Go (No, not that one!)

Written by James Bay

From walking home and talking loads
To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you

The Moods of Songs: Gravity

Song 1 of 12

Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long
No matter what I say or do
I'll still feel you here 'till the moment I'm gone

Music and it's Power Over Your Mood.

Everyone knows that music can have a powerful effect on someone's mood. You play hard fast music to work out to, and you play slower softer music to relax. You listen to sad songs and you listen to bright songs.

Quiet Desperation

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. 
What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. 
From the desperate city, you go into the desperate country and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. 
A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. 
There is no play in them, for this comes after work. 
But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." 
      - Henry David Thoreau

Winter Returns and With it My Discontent.

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
