🎼 Music That Motivates Us When We Write 🎼

Greetings! ~ Jem :smiley: :blue_heart:

Hey guys, I thought here we would share motivational music we listen to when we write our stories. I know for sure music could be an awesome motivator to help keep us furiously typing away! :lion: :blob_hearts:

So basically share music that keeps you going and helps you finish that line of dialogue. It could be a song or a playlist you created on YouTube for example :rofl: :blossom:

Perhaps someone might come across this thread and find a song they like which helps motivate them to write :smirk: :musical_note:


Link to music video/lyrics:

Name of the music and name of the singer(s), or band:

Genre of your story:

Tags (optional): Basically, you can add keywords that your story contains. For example, heartbreak, etc. You can have as many “tags” as you’d like which apply to your story. There’s no limit to however many you’d like and it doesn’t have to be one word, can be something like “this story contains a lot of heartache” or “this story has witches, vampires, and supernatural creatures” and etc :blob_hearts:


I’ll start with 2 examples:

George Michael - Careless Whisper (Lyric Video) - YouTube

Genre: Drama

Billy Idol - Dancing with myself (Lyrics) - YouTube

Genre: Drama :v:

BTW I put the names of the singers and the songs above the videos :blossom:


If you’re writing something about cheating, highschool, etc, in the drama or romance genre, or another genre, just thought I’d leave this suggestion:

Leave (Get Out) - YouTube -Jojo

I’ll def be leaving more suggestions! :blob_sun:
