It is funny where you mind goes when you are lying cocooned in your blankets, unable to fall asleep because there is a mouse running around your room and the moment you fall asleep you just know it will come and nibble on your toes (frightening I know). My brain happened, for some reason, to start pondering the process of writing and the product (oddly enough it didn't spend any time on the numerous stories I have waiting to be finished).

I was thinking about the fact that it would be nice to make money for all of the time I spend working on my separate pieces of fiction since I do pour a lot of hours into it. The only way I know to do that is to write a story strictly for publication. As tempting as that sounds, I realized that would take away some of my favorite things about writing. When I finish a chapter it is all I can do to send if off to my beta first and not simply post it because I am so excited to share it with you guys.

I also love hearing the instant feed back on every chapter. I'm not fooling myself into thinking that most of you comment or even a good number of you, but some of you do and I love reading each and every one of them. If I wrote for publication, I might hear from some readers on the book as a whole but no where near as detailed as you all tend to get. (Plus I wouldn't have the pleasure of giving you all horrible cliff hangers...)

All of those thoughts amounted to the fact that while I would love to be a published writer, I am fairly happy doing what I am now and I don't think I could go without doing what I do here. (Although if anyone has any ideas on how I could make extra money on this, I am all ears. lol.)

So now that you have read through all of that, it's all of your favorite time again: Drabble Requests! This time I am going to do drabbles centered on one song. You will provide me with all of the information (and a link to the song) and I will write only for the duration of the song. Sounds fun? Great! You all know the drill (or if you don't just fill in the blanks lol)

Universe: [Due to how short these are going to be, it needs to be a universe that already exists in one of my stories or the real world.]
Preferred rating: [I promise not to go above your preferred rating but I may not actually get up to it...]
Song: [please include a link where I can listen to it]
