NaNoWriMo – Day 21

Day 21! Last night I wrote 1,130 words, which means I’ve tripped over the 50K mark on my manuscript! (50,002, to be exact.) My November total now stands at 25,274.

Today’s playlist song is a dance track called ‘Don’t Ask’, co-written by my husband and Megadon Betamax. Hubby did an amazing job with the vocals. Nice bit of ’70s synth sounds in this. There’s no official vid, but you can have a listen to all 7 minutes and 29 seconds on YouTube (below) and download the EP on iTunes.


And if I may give him an extra plug, here’s a haunting piece my husband wrote and performed on his array of vintage synths for the ‘Dangerous Boys’ novella anthology trailer:
