PLAYLISTS

Some writers like to work to music. They pick songs that inspire them, turning the volume way up to drown out the chatter of their internal editor (or their kids). I need complete silence to create. When there’s something playing in the background I find myself listening to the lyrics.  Even instrumental pieces distract me.

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t have playlists for my stories. Music is what inspires me. And there is no genre of music that inspires me more than country. So, I put together playlists, songs I listen to before I write, during breaks or whenever I want to get in touch with my muse. (She likes country too :-).

Here are playlists I put together for some of my writing projects. One was for Revving Her Up, which will come out in January 2012. (Read an excerpt here). The second playlist was for a still untitled work-in-progress about a succubus in New York City.

Any suggestions for songs to add to either list? What kind of music inspires you? Let me know in the comments below!
