Raise your hand if…
You’ve had enough turkey for a lifetime
You drank away the day in order to escape your own/spouses/other people’s crazy family
You realize there isn’t crap on tv Thanksgiving night
Just a little post holiday poll.

I am trying to write this great story. It’s different from my usual in that there isn’t a backstory involving romance whatsoever. The story is about a man who flees him home (and 100 year old heritage) in order to be his own person. He is then forced to return to his former home because of his father’s ailing health and inability to run the family business. His motivation in returning is to earn his father’s acceptance. Still with me?
Here’s where I need your help.
When I write I have to have music. I can not for the life of me find the right music for this story. My whole game is being thrown off. Let me tell you the setting for this story. Hopefully one of you can suggest something to help me..
Sonoma County, California. A mid-size, successful family owned winery along the Russian River. This is a little story about what happens when one person wants independence and one person wants roots. It’s also about realizing what you actually want is already within your reach. You just have to reach out and take it. (I’ve been having a lot of fun doing research for this book. You know, reading wine books and doing some sampling. Okay given that it’s the holidays and Cycling Papa is in town for this week – lots of sampling. So far my favoritism leans towards a nice Turning Leaf Pinot Noir.)
Now if I just had music to go with that.
I’ve been through the usual suspects. Coldplay. Muse. Dave Matthews. Nothing is striking the right cord (that pun was actually not intended). I can’t seem to settle on something that’s perfect but maybe you know of something that would work.
So. Let me hear it. Literally.
The list thus far:
