Listening Lately: Writing Edition

All I’ve been doing lately is writing. I need to sit down and tell you all about it and I will, soon, but for now I thought I’d share the music I listen to when I write. A lot of it has been curated from various Songza playlists or things I’ve stumbled upon on Youtube.

My playlist is usually instrumental because that’s what I find easiest to write to, but if there are lyrics they have to be the sort that don’t distract.

What do you write to?


Leo Kalyan – Fingertips

Shy Girls (ft. Tei Shi) – Arrest Me

Gabrielle Aplin – Heavy Heart

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim OST – The Streets of Whiterun

Mono – Follow The Map

Sam Hunt – Take Your Time

The previous song, as well as this one, are on a playlist I listened to while I was working on a pair of characters for a trilogy I just finished. I loved them and now I miss them.

  1. When I need something general to write to, I turn Pandora to my Philip Glass station.

    If I’m feeling a bit more specific, I also have a Broadway Showstoppers station and a Flogging Molly station.

  2. Elizabeth, it’s so exciting to hear you’ve been writing a LOT. Way to go! I prefer silence while I’m writing, but if I do listen to anything it’s generally instrumental classical music. Lyrics mess with my train of thought. 😉
