Music to Inspire Writing

Thirteen Songs of Inspiration
I listen to music while I write but the music varies based on the mood of the book. In the Coming Home series, there are scenes of loss and of love. These songs inspired the energy around me while I wrote parts of the series.
  1. I Was Wrong by Sleeperstar
  2. Redemption by The Strange Familiar
  3. Turn To Stone by Ingrid Michaelson
  4. Try by Nelly Furtado
  5. I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz
  6. Holding A Heart by A Girl Named Toby
  7. Make You Feel My Love by Joan Osborne
  8. The Only Exception by Paramore
  9. Breathe by Michelle Branch
  10. Angels On The Moon by Thriving Ivory
  11. Better Days by The Goo Goo Dolls
  12. Enough To Let Me Go by Switchfoot
  13. Into Your Arms by The Maine
I couldn't write without music, and since these songs played so often while I've been working on this series, they're nearly a part of me. I can hear them in my sleep sometimes. The first book, Coming Home, is currently available. The second book, Finding Home, is a work-in-progress.
