Playlist of the Month

Like many writers, I enjoy composing my work with a kickin’ playlist in the background. Because sometimes–whether you’re writing an action scene, a dramatic scene, a scene with all kinds of rage–the right tune can put you in the right mood and let the words flow. While for a given book or chapter or even scene within this series I have specific playlists I veer toward, every month I try to change it up with some new music that particularly speaks to me. For all you fellow writers out there looking for some sweet new jams to type away to and get the inspiration going, try these suggestions and freshen up your playlist today!
