Playlist / Reading + Writing

When I read and write, I always need complete focus. I tend to lean toward the introverted side of the spectrum, and with that comes my appreciation of solitude and silence. However, there are some rare occasions where I need to put on some tunes to really get into my book, or I need the words of someone else to give me inspiration. (Sometimes writer’s block is just TOO real). So for times like those, I made a playlist on Spotify of songs I love that help me focus on the words on the page.

So, there it is. I made this playlist about a year ago when I was in a huge reading slump , and have kept the songs pretty consistent since. I have deleted and added a few songs since it was created, but really, only a few.

I hope you find these songs as helpful as I do.
