When I'm in the process of brainstorming, plotting, and writing a new book, I often simultaneously begin building a song playlist. These are songs that get me into the emotions of the book, and I'll listen to the playlist on repeat when I'm out on walks. As I'm listening, scenes unfold in my mind and I can work through any plot or story issues.

Once a book is finalized, I may rearrange songs to fit certain chapters, making the playlist chronological. Other times, the song list is simply a short collection of songs related to character experiences/emotions. Either way, click on a book cover to listen on Spotify. Give a like if you enjoy it!
