Writing playlists

I’m a fan of music if you couldn’t tell already. I like music, I like writing, and when I combine the two wonderful things happen. Namely, I get inspired to write.

I’m always on the search for new music to write too, so I thought I would give you some song recommendations according to the theme/genre of your writing project.

And if you want to take a listen to the songs, just click on the titles that will take you to a Spotify playlist I made.

    Love this, sista!! This is a really great article….not only for what to listen to while writing but also songs that fit the characters themselves. I have two playlists for my two main characters and this will give me some new songs to explore for them. :)))

    Those names are brilliant. I can’t wait to listen to the playlists while writing. By now I trust your taste in music, so I expect I’ll have a fun time with them.

        I’m super picky with my songs, and most of the ones I enjoy, I don’t enjoy for super long -shrug-

        -shrug- Music’s like miniature books, anyways. Maybe a historical fiction book isn’t really my interest, but hey, I can learn a lot from them regardless, and I don’t regret reading it 🙂
        Music (excluding rap and heavy metal) are the same way for me lol

        I personally like a lot of rap music, but can’t handle country music. And yeah, we still can lean things wether we like the topic or not.

        xD Country music isn’t my favorite genre, but it has a certain charm I cannot deny
        So I usually listen to at least 1 minute of it before tapping the “Skip” button xD

        Mhmmm, I see. I’ll forever be the indie and alternative lover, no country music for me.
