How to Create Your Novel’s Playlist

Have you ever created a playlist for your novel? A novel playlist will help you if you ever get stuck, while in the moment of working on your manuscript.

Lately I’ve been collecting songs for a future novel I want to write. I will start writing that novel after I’ve finished this current one that I’m working on.

Sometimes music pokes at my imagination when I’m not writing, because usually I can’t write to music with lyrics, but I can imagine to music with lyrics. So that’s what I do whenever I drive with the radio on.

If I don’t know certain songs I just click open either Siri or Shazam. They both have the ability to tell me what a song is. Then, I usually take a screen shot of it so I can look it up later.
