Musical Influence

I for sure listen to music for every chapter that I write.. I don’t know if anyone else does the same, but I thought I’d also share not only my poses, but my musical taste as far as what inspires me for certain chapters? I hope I’m not the only one that literally can listen to a certain song for hours, over and over, in order to give them ideas? Hahaha But, here’s a list of the songs I’ve listened to that have really, really helped me write chapters at times, and even some songs that I plan on using for inspiration in the future for later chapters. Some of these songs fit perfectly with my characters and others are just for ideas, so take a listen if you’d like, it’s here only for the inspiration that I’ve felt helped me write better. So, enjoy!
