Music plays an important role in my writing process. It fuels my creative spirit and the right playlist can keep me writing like my life depends on it.

Every so often a single song can inspire an entire story. The old Beatles classic, BLACKBIRD, performed by Dionne Farris was such a song. The story came when I needed it most, unfolding through my thoughts like an A-list movie across a big screen.

A playlist that’s included treasures by Lauren Hill, Erykah Badu, India Arie, Macy Gray, Tracy Chapman, and my girl, Jill Scott, has had me writing like a mad woman, my life depending on it.

Sometimes life just doesn’t get much better. Enjoy!
