July Writing Music

Headphones on Book

Music helps put me in the right mindset while writing, and I’m sure I’m not alone in finding a little background noise helps boost concentration. A while ago, I wrote about the type of music I prefer to listen to while writing – generally either upbeat/energetic for when I’m cranking out words, or electronic/relaxed for late night editing.

Music taste is very subjective, but it’s such a huge, invisible force that influences my writing that I thought I’d share some of the music I listened to recently while writing my book. I put in a youtube link for each track, so feel free to have a poke around and maybe you’ll discover something new that catches your fancy.
