10 Songs for Creative Inspiration (Pt. 1)

I love music even though I can’t read it and can’t sing worth a damn. It’s an art I truly appreciate. Sometimes, I use it for writing inspiration. Other times I write in silence. Every artist has their own preference. While I often feel that music with words can be distracting while writing, I guess it depends on my mood because I will listen to both. Below, I’ve inserted some of the songs on my current writing playlist.

My partner always comments on how he thinks a lot of the music I listen to “is so sad.” I find creative inspiration and wonder in them. Some of the songs below start out slow and then pick up. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! If you have any song suggestions, please leave a comment below.

Many of these songs don’t have official videos.

Happy listening!
