I don’t know about you, but when I write, music usually helps me get focused. Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of songs over and over, because they fit the mood of the story I am writing. For your listening enjoyment…here’s a little playlist I put together of songs I’ve had on heavy rotation! (And I swear, if you get past the first bit of Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s a song fully worth listening to. You won’t regret it.) Hope you enjoy!
Do you listen to music while you write, or do you find it distracting? Got any songs you find particularly inspiring?
Here’s the playlist for those of you without Flash: Blue Ridge Mountains by Fleet Foxes, Serpents by Sharon Van Etten, Autumn Sweater by Yo La Tengo, Anyone’s Ghost by The National, Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright by the inimitable Bob Dylan, Little Black Submarines by the Black Keys, NYC Moves to the Sound of LA by Funeral Party, Doubt by Corin Tucker, Nodding off (featuring Best Coast) by the Wavves
