Thirteen Songs On My Writing Playlist


Some writers play music while they write, some can’t stand it. I’ve reached the point where I need quiet when I write, but during the rest of my day I like to listen to songs that remind me of my characters and story so that I can “write” in my head all day long while I take care of other more mundane tasks. If it’s not evident from this playlist, my characters are all quite angsty. I like ’em dark and tortured, it just makes for a deeper character arc.

Here are 13 songs on my current playlist that relate in some way to my three WIPs: AVATAR, REMEMBRANCER and HUNTED:

1. Caught in the Sun by Course of Nature (AVATAR, Jana)
2. One Thing by Finger Eleven (AVATAR, Brannon))
3. Heroes by Shinedown (REMEBRANCER, Meredith)
4. Devil With The Green Eyes by Matthew Sweet (HUNTED, Jake)
5. Going Under by Evanescence (HUNTED, Meredith)
6. Born Yesterday by Forty Foot Echo (HUNTED, Jake)
7. First Time by Lifehouse (REMEMBRANCER, Ian & Elena)
8. Far Away by Nickelback (HUNTED, Jake & Meredith)
9. Invisible Man by Theory of a Dead Man (HUNTED, Jake)
10. You Don’t Know What It’s Like by Econoline Crush (AVATAR, Rodrik)
11. Hemorrhage by Fuel (REMEMBRANCER, Elena)
12. Bring Me To Life by Evanesence (REMEMBRANCER, Elena)
13. Alt.End by The Cure (REMEMBRANCER, Ian)

Bonus: Love’s Divine by Seal (all three stories)
