      I’m glad you like it!

    What no Nickelback or Country music?. Actually I normally need TV background noise to actually be able to write 🙂

      I’m okay with Nickelback … but not so much country. Writers all seem to be different on what they prefer as background noise for writing.
      Me, I need music, lots of it, usually loud. Drowns out self-doubt. 😉
