I can't have a successful writing session without listening to music. Silence doesn't strike any inspiration for me. If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you will frequently see my current writing music.
When I get up in the morning before a writing session, I browse my email and social media for about 5-10 minutes while listening to a cultivated list of music to get me in the "mood". While writing, I prefer to keep to movie/television scores without lyrics (as they distract me!).
Over the course of about a year, I created a playlist for the series because at any moment, I would be drafting and revising at the same time. I wanted these books to have the same "feel" so I kept everything in one neat playlist and added more as I continued with the series.
The order of the songs follows my progression in the series, linking the Barros women and the vibe I wanted with each of their individual stories.
If you are interested in listening, click above and add the playlist to your Spotify and dive deep into the minds of these women.
