Boost Your Writing Mojo With Music…

  1. Kaye Spencer says:

    I write mostly historical western romance, and the music I turn to is Marty Robbins’ gunfighter songs for the inspiration and mind-set. When I’m in what I call ‘deep writing’ mode, I invariably put on the Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks as the noise to block out everything else. For when I need a pick-me-up or I’m just in a mood, it will be the music from Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, and La bohème.

  2. I definitely related to this! I have two songs that I turn to, depending on how I’m feeling:

    – When I’m completely frazzled and can’t hold a thought in my head: “Sailing” by Christopher Cross. It soothes me, allows me to start organizing my thoughts and discard the irrelevant ones.

    – When my writing stinks and I’m getting rejections left and right and I want to throw in the towel: “Win in the End” by Mark Safan (this is the song from the final basketball game in “Teen Wolf”). Somehow, this song helps me dig down and push a little harder.

    I usually listen to a hard rock song before going into work like Thunderstruck by ACDC or Paradise City by Guns and Roses. Lately when I need a pick me up I listen to A Little Bit of Soul. And I love creating playlist for my characters/books!!!!
