This past winter, Syntax & Salt Magazine held a fun contest where people could submit playlists for writing inspiration. I submitted a playlist, and while I did not win, I did find a ton of great music on the winning list. So, when the contest popped up again, this time asking for playlists for summer writing inspiration, I submitted a new list and won!
- My Summer Writing Inspiration playlist is featured right now at Syntax & Salt.
- Or you can find it on Spotify.
This playlist is pretty laid-back and includes some of my favourite music from artists like Rival Sons, Depeche Mode, Buck & Evans, and others!
(And hey (since my week seems to be musically inclined), if you want some more inspired & inspiring music, check out Australian guitarist Graham Greene’s new single ‘The Gates of Balawat’ – a track inspired by one of my short stories!)
