My Writing Playlist

Want a peek at the playlist that psychs me up to get my write on? Well, here you go!  I’m a spontaneous kind of girl who shuffles ’em up, so instead of putting them in order, they’re in categories that explain why they made my list.

“Back in the Saddle” by Aerosmith
“Get The Party Started” by P!nk
“Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield

  1. I know I’m late replying, but anyway:
    I often use a random shuffle or my “monastery mix” for writing (that’s nearly 600 instrumental-only tracks, including John Sheard, Natalie McMaster, Mozart, and soundtracks including the Simpsons movie, Firefly/Serenity, and Battlestar Galactica.) But I do have a custom inspiration playlist that I love for my new book:

    Famile, LeAnn Rimes
    Carry Me, Sheri Porter
    Someone Else’s Star, Bryan White
    Livin’ a Lie, Bruce Guthro
    See You Again, Carrie Underwood
    I Will Remember You, Amy Grant
    Rocketown, Michael W Smith
    Like a Cat, Sherrie Austin
    I’m With You, Avril Lavigne
    Lonely Enough, Little Big Town
    Home, Craig Cardiff
    Break it to them Gently, Gil Grand
    Free, Beth Nielsen Chapman
