Oh my love don't forsake me

As of yesterday, I completed the first pass revision of my book in progress. This in no way implies that there is a revised book - I have a list of scenes that need to be written, and I have to go through a nontrivial number of reference books and steal things from history and mythology to fill out the pieces in the story. (That is the fun part.)

No good revision happens without a playlist, so here's what's going to be playing on a pretty constant loop as I work (for comparative purposes, here's the playlist for the earlier draft):

"Seven Devils" - Florence + the Machine
"Sorrow" - The National
"Who Knows Where the Time Goes" - Nina Simone
"9 Crimes" - Damien Rice
"Take Me Home" - Concrete Blonde
"Plague" - Crystal Castles
"Stranger Than Fiction" - Deluka
"Draw Your Swords" - Angus and Julia Stone
"Elephant Gun" - Beirut
"Laura" - Bat for Lashes
"Harder Than Easy" - Jack Savoretti
"Afraid of Summer" - Lost Lander
"Come Back Home" - Chris Pureka
"Beyond This Moment" - Patrick O'Hearn
"Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto Remix)" - Massive Attack feat. Hope Sandoval
"Snowfall" - Ingrid Michaelson
"Change of Time" - Josh Ritter
"You Said Something" - PJ Harvey
"Broken Crown" - Mumford & Sons
"Winter Fields" - Bat for Lashes
"White Winter Hymnal" - Fleet Foxes
"What the Water Gave Me" - Florence + the Machine

(Some of this is crowd-sourced - thanks to everyone on twitter who offered suggestions.)
