Having trouble staying motivated through your writing sprints? Well, here are five songs about the action of writing to pump you up and keep you motivated.
1. Rough Draft by Sarah Solovay
A story always starts somewhere. Don’t be afraid to have a sloppy start. After all, they say that a first draft is just you telling yourself the story as you know it. Once you’ve written your rough draft, you can revise and shape it.
2. Word Crimes by Weird Al
We gotta do revisions, and one of the revisions we gotta do is line editing. I love this weird and quirky song that gets me ready to get the hard work done.
3. Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
This song is perhaps a bit old and overplayed, but it’s still good. Here unwritten sounds motivational. If you’re having a bad day and you’re struggling to put words on the page, perhaps this song is the one to get your spirits up in the clouds once more.
4. You’re Gonna Know My Name by Watt White
Sometimes you just wanna tell your story. So listen to this song to get yourself pumped up. No fear. Plunge forward into your plot and come out the other side victorious.
5. Man on a Mission by Oh the Larceny
You don’t need permission. If you’re having a hard day, this song’s sure to get you kicking against the morbs. Sometimes all it takes is a reminder that you’re on a mission to get this finished.
