I wrote a post a while ago about how I didn’t listen to music while writing and instead preferred to gather inspiration from it between writing sessions. More recently though (probably because of looooonnng hours writing and editing Kiera), I’ve discovered several songs that help get my creative juices flowing while writing without distracting me … More A Smorgasbord of Writing Music
