I started the Musical Playlist series years ago when I started blogging. Aside from writing, one of my creative outlets is listening to music. When I learned to combine the two, I noticed that my productivity in writing increased. Some time ago, I began creating playlists to match the mood and setting of my writing projects.

When I was writing my debut novel, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, I would often refer back to this playlist and add to it as time went on just so I could maintain the energy and vibe of my story. Now that my novel is out and available for sale, I thought I’d share a musical playlist for you to vibe to.
