Music Plug #1...

Music is a huge motivator for me both when writing and when doing normal stuff like dishes, working out or working in my office. If I'm ever in a bad mood, a new CD or an old favorite always makes me feel better. I've been inspired by music to write stories and keep songs logged in a "soundtrack" so that no matter what story I'm working on I can channel that time and place and mood anytime. I'm a huge country/bluegrass/folk music fan, y'all should know that about me by now. So I want to plug that is featuring 4 live performances by Mindy Smith which includes 2 new songs. I think I bought Mindy Smith's cd over a year ago - maybe two years ago - when I first heard her rendition of "Jolene" on CMT. I listen to everything from Eminem to Alison Krauss, Metallica to Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton and above them all Mindy Smith is my favorite. So you can check her out at and if you're any kind of country, folk or bluegrass fan you should seriously consider picking up her CD "One Moment More". It's one of those - I-could-sit-on-my-couch-all-day-stare-at-the-rain-look-at-old-photos-and-ponder type cd's that I love all too much. More music plugs to come...I seriously need to get back to work. Check out &
