Rock Your Gypsy Soul...

OK, first my progress report on my idea for NaNoWriMO. I have summaized the theme in 3 succinct sentences and considered some different treatments with respect to genre and have settled on what I think is the right approach. There will need to be at least 2 locations and I have those. I am now thinking over characters. Hero or Heroine or a dynamic duo? hmmm, that is to mull over this week. There will need to be probably 6 or 8 supporting characters, maybe more depending on the complications I cook up... Something else to think about this week - how many subplots can I manage to weave together in the novel? This is fun!

Ok, so that is too slim a post. Will add a song I listened to and ended up humming all day...

I like the cover of this song by James Otto which is currently playing on the local Adult Alternative station. I couldn't find a You Tube of him performing it and the ones of Colin James performing it is not the best sound - but it is not too bad.

I like the lyrics and the head space it puts me in and I hope you do too.

Into the Mystic

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows I want to hear it
I dont have to fear it

I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when thst fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I dont have to fear it

I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float into the mystic

Come on girl...


  1. Peggy, did you receive your package yet? It was sent last Tuesday. By the way, Into the Mystic is one of my favorite songs:)

  2. You have me very curious about your project, Peggy. I will be waiting.

    The lyrics from your song are very poetic, and the sound of guitar music is irresistible to me, although I suppose I am into the electric more than the acoustic. Overall, was a fun experience.

  3. Anonymous - Hmm, no package yet... however I am sure it will arrive soon. :) will be sure to post an entry on my blog as soon as it arrives! I suspect Anonymoum you are my "swapor" (me being the swapee")... Sometimes the post can be slow. The person I sent to hasn't received mine as yet.

    Odd coincidence that I was humming that song all day yesterday whilst your package was sailing my way!

  4. Fram, I dare not announce my project yet to the world for fear that the plan is too grandiose. I wonder how I will manage such a large project, given that this is my first novel attempt (I think I will end up feeling like the little engine that could) - but stay tuned and I will leave it to you, if you like, to puzzle it out. I will be leaving clues as I mull over this and that "out loud" in my blog. Given that you and I seem to have a similar passion for words, your advice and comment will be well appreciated.

    I can't say I share in any great degree your passion for electric guitar- my preference is for unplugged. I spent about 6 years of my life with a man who had a similar passion. He played (but not well :) ) - do you?

  5. Oh, yes, rock your gypsy soul, baby. I love that refrain. Many thanks for the post, the lyrics and even the video, a bit jumpy but still appreciate it :-).

    Greetings from London.
