One of the most valuable tools I have at my disposal when putting together a new piece is something that is also available to every visitor to the GMC. It’s the ‘search’ function. After more than five years and a total of over 900 pieces — and in consideration of my spotty memory — I usually do a search while writing something new just to make sure I’m not repeating myself!
But the search function is also a very valuable tool for visitors to the GMC. You might be surprised by the number of subjects that have been covered here. Think of a musician, band, song, or just something nostalgia-related and plug it into the search form. You might uncover a lot of hidden treasures. (Note: I’m not bragging about my writing ability, or lack of same — just advising that there is a lot of GOOD STUFF here.)
And just to get you in the mood for exploring, here are some facts about the GMC:
