I love music, and it's a part of just about everything I do. I even have a "Play it Loud" list for driving on the interstate in the red Mustang.
I was asked recently what's on my playlist for writing. And it depends...
With fifteen different, themed playlists with hundreds of hours of music, I usually listen to rock or country with a fast pace and uplifting words. I write and edit better when there's a beat. These are my favorites right now:
- Kid Rock
- Florida Georgia Line
- Pharrell Williams (He's from Virginia Beach too.)
- Colbie Caillat
- Neon Trees
- Bruno Mars
- Sara Bareilles
- Uncle Kracker
But, I also often go back to old friends:
- Van Halen
- Billy Joel
- Elton John
- Culture Club
- Duran Duran
And if you're a mystery writer who's stuck, put on Train's "50 Ways to Say Goodbye." He offers a variety of ways to get rid of that annoying character.
What do you listen to when you write? Is there a specific genre that works best for you?
