I find that I need to have background noise when I write as it helps with setting my mood.
The fictional book I am writing at the moment is a contemporary romance therefore this is the playlist I have created to help get me in the head-space of my characters:
Paloma Faith – A Perfect Contradiction & Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?
One Republic – Waking Up, Dreaming Out Loud & Native
Amy Winehouse – Back to Black & Frank
Adele – 19 & 21
Sia – 1000 Forms of Fear & Some People Have Real Problems
Ed Sheeran – X
Gabrielle Aplin – English Rain
George – The Esessential Hits
Calvin Harris – Motion
The Cure – Pornography & Disintegration
