Short Fiction Questions & Inspirations Playlist

While I’m at it with the Short Fiction FAQs, does anyone have any additional questions I should include? I’m going to make a compiled file and post it on my website.

And, since it’s Friday and I should have some content, this is a version of my most recent playlist, all songs I find inspirational in one way or another. Well, except for the first one, which is the lead-in, and has a different mood.

Down at the bottom of the post is an MP3 widget I’m trying out, that has links to the songs. If you’ve got experience with MP3 widgets, please share!
