Hehehe… you knew after ‘Fairy tale in New York City’, that this one was going to make the list. When to Listen: Don’t, not when writing. Stop writing, then listen. I don’t want to know what people might come up with to write while listening to this one! 🙂 Readers, Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc?

I have to admit, I had to go through a few different versions of this song to find one I liked. This is as close as I could get… and even this one feels way to rushed. When to listen: Brainstorming, especially if you like harmonies. This would be a great place to try to concoct a few ideas. Readers, Do you have a question … Read More From My Writing (Christmas!) Playlist

How could it be Christmas without a little Bing Crosby added to the mix? Granted, this is not the song he’s most known for. When to Listen: I would say brainstorming. This is a great song with a lot of wonderful melodies that should help generate some great ideas. Readers, Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc?

My wife loves this one, so it really had to go on the list. When to listen: Cool down. Done writing for the day? Tip back a ‘Not Your Father’s Root beer’ and enjoy some lighthearted music.

Oh come all ye faithful to the tune of ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It…’ … BRILLIANT!!! When to Listen: Honestly, this is a brainstorming song. The brilliance of combining this melody with this time-honored song, and doing a good job of it, should rub off on everyone!

Next up on the playlist is a song that… well you really don’t need a Holiday as an excuse to listen to this one… Not the most politically correct song, but I can’t tell you how many drunken karaoke nights I’ve done around the Holiday where me and a few friends got up and sang this one… no I do not have video. When … Read More From My Writing (Christmas!) Playlist

  I love this song. It’s a sweet melody sung by one of my favorite female volcalists: Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), as well as the singer from Sonata Artica. When to listen: Whenever. This is a song about togetherness. Listen to it during a scene where your characters share a moment, or even on the general playlist!   Readers, Do you have a question about writing, … Read More From My Writing (Christmas!) Playlist

For the Kids!

Hi All, As most of you know, I am very much so a big child care and protection advocate. I’ve spent a lot of time working with children and though I don’t lay that aspect on in my novels (I don’t like preaching at people), I still like to try to raise awareness for different issues where possible. As the Holiday season comes to … Read More For the Kids!

Yeah, no Heavy Metal playlist is complete without at least 5 songs by Dragonforce. This song is pure adrenaline. It makes you feel good, it’s upbeat, and I love it. When to Listen: Well, it’s on my general playlist and I like to listen to it whenever, but if you’re looking for a specific time to listen to it… burnout. I’m not kidding. Are … Read More From My Writing Playlist

Heh… well this one should be a surprise to no one! When to listen: Um… I would say general playlist again. It’s a good song, but it should pretty much remain a song when you’re already typing and just need to keep the energy up. Readers, Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc?
