Kumiko (war world #3) novel - man, it was sooooooooo oooooooobvious.

of course, of course, that was how it should have ended.

It's not written (of course) yet, but I have just flashed the colourful and graphic ending and the narrative/character denouement to the Kumiko (war world #3) novel and fortunately/luckily it also helps tie up some of the issues I was having with Reaper (free planet #3).

Basically, you have to see the six books of both the War World and the Free Planet trilogies converging. Books one of each trilogy at the ends, then books two closer in, finally books 3 soft-merging in the middle almost (but not essentially) dependant upon each other. A shared denouement of sorts but still two original parts three and two distinct (and truly insane) trilogies.

I know I've talked about this soft-merging before when I was discussing about waiting to finish Reaper until some Kumiko issues were ironed out, so this was kinda planned (in a way) but I'm really glad to have come to this conclusion in this 'working hard through it' way. And it REALLY WORKS, believe me.

Mozart's Requiem is the CD of Kumiko (war world #3) - Sir Neville Marriner - Herbert Von Karajan and Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos

as Ruichi Sakamoto's THREE became the official writing theme song of Liberator (free planet #2), so Mozart's Requiem has become the official writing theme song of Kumiko (war world #3).

It's been playing, unintentionally for the first few thousand words of Kumiko, then definitely intentionally every real re-engineered chapter since I had the 'dream about the content', the dream after the dream, the download from the heavens, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Requiem by Neville Marriner and the boys, the HMV Classics edition (pictured above) has been playing during every recent writing session.

Track list:

Requiem in D minor Edith Mathis soprano | Grace Bumbry alto
George Shirley tenor | Marius Rintzier bass
New Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus
Rafael Frubeck de Burgos

Ave verum corpus
Singeverein der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wein
Philharmonia Orchestra
Herbert von Karajan

Exultate, jubilate
Barbara Hendricks soprano
Academy of St Martin in the Fields
Sir Neville Marriner

Basically, whenever this music is on, I'm probably writing some more of the Kumiko (war world #3) novel, I'm self-entraining to produce written output. Isn't it sick?
