Book 2 in The System series begun. Word count currently 1,310, today’s target 3k. So little over 1/3rd the way there. It is 3 am as I write this. Went and bought some new music on iTunes…just for this first chapter. To understand what is going on…here is your playlist:

Mad World (the Voice performance though you could use the original),
I’d love to change the world by Jetta,
Slow-ass Jolene from the Blacklist,
Soothe My Soul Depeche Mode (Joris Delacroix remix)
People are Strange Echo and the Bunnymen
Breakeven (Live) The Script
Counting Stars One Republic
My Songs Know what you Did in the Dark Fall Out Boy
Strong London Grammar
Sail AWOLNATION
Everyone wants to rule the world Lorde

I picked these songs not because of the lyrics, but for the mood they inspired. It worked great for this chapter. Sadly, upbeat, chaotic, totally fitting the first chapter. Later the lyrics of some of these songs may inspire other chapters, but for tonight I just needed the pacing.
