A quick IMPORTANT note on song length versus page length...
This was all supposed to be done where if a song was 2 minutes long, it would "cover" 2 pages. If it was 3:30 in length, it would cover 3 and 1/2 pages. You get the idea. This was the hinge/focal point/foundation of all of this in the first place.
Once I started collaborating with Jettabugfox on Breaking Dawn and Eclipse (and a little bit on New Moon), I got to be a bit of a perfectionist on this point - even throwing out songs that were 10 seconds too long or short.
Having recently reviewed the song length vs. page lengths of my Twilight and New Moon lists, I've come to the following conclusion: I must have been on drugs.
Almost NONE of these songs are the right length per my current standards. Some are as much as a full minute off. Seriously, I don't know what I was thinking.
It's kind of like looking back at drawings you did when you were 2 or 3. Nothing is inside the lines. Strange color choices. And, is that blob an orange or a sun or a fist or a flower?
Looking back, I kind of understand why the majority of the responses I got from reviewers here were of the "that's nice dear", "you must have worked hard", or silence variety.
So please, I'm begging you
, set any prior experiences with these Twilight or New Moon lists aside and please try to take a fresh look.
