Out of Night: A Musical Playlist

I see a lot of discussion on Twitter and in Facebook Groups about writing to music. Some authors prefer to write in complete silence, while others are motivated by music. I always have a playlist while writing a novel, because some form of music in the background helps me to concentrate or can inspire a scene.

While I write historical fiction and sagas and listen to a lot of period musics, I always add modern music to my playlists because I’m either inspired by their lyrics for a particular character or a story line.

As an indie author, I always try to include indie singer/songwriters and composers in my playlist. I’m pleased to feature a bright and gifted young singer/songwriter, Eda Green, in this one. Eda is the stepdaughter of one of my high school friends. Give her a listen and a follow, because she’s excellent.
