Music to Write To: A Spotify playlist by Robyn Schneider
The right playlist can be the difference between writer’s block and a productive afternoon.
In Spotify Essentials, the Daily Dot curates custom playlists created by some of our favorite artists, staff writers, and Web community leaders.
Every writer needs a good playlist. Character names can be changed later on, and jokes can be scribbled in during edits. But when you sit down in front of that blank page, a great soundtrack can be the difference between writers block and looking up to find that the sun set hours ago.
I’m a bit superstitious about my routine when I’m writing a book, but here are the things I know: Sit at the same table in the coffee shop if you were pleased with what you wrote there (if not, switch); Always read over what you wrote yesterday before putting a new sentence on the page; Invest in good headphones and whitening strips for the coffee stains; and The Mountain Goats can cure even the worst writing day.
Every writer needs a good playlist. This is mine:
