Writing Career Playlist X’s Two


I’ve seen people post playlists for specific books so I thought for my blog today I’d create a playlist of the perfect songs to get you through your publishing journey.  Then I asked my husband, JKR, to weigh in on his choices, so you’re essentially getting two-for-one. Here’s to helping you through the tough times, the good times, and the even better ones.

For when you are writing:

My pick: Take Me to Church by Hozier

JKR’s pick: Guitar and Pen by the Who


For when you are stuck:

My pick: Running to Stand Still by U2

JKR’s pick: You Really Got me by the Kinks


                                                                            For when you are plotting:

My pick: Ripple by the Grateful Dead

JKR’s pick: Child of Vision by Supertramp


For when your first draft is done:

My pick: Strange Magic by ELO

JKR’s pick: Tempus Fugit by Yes


For when you are revising:

My pick: For You by Bruce Springsteen

JKR’s pick: Right Place, Wrong Time by Dr. John


For while you wait for that agent or editor to get back to you:

My pick: The Waiting is the Hardest Part by Tom Petty

JKR’s pick: 22,000 Days by The Moody Blues


For when you are rejected by said agent or editor:

My Pick: Try by Pink

JKR’s Pick: When the Levee Breaks by Led Zeplin


For when you sell:

My Pick: See What Love Can Do by Eric Clapton

JKR’s: Rosalita By Bruce Springsteen


Now you are all set for every stage of your writing career.

You’re welcome!
