Novel Playlist: REFLECTIONS

Posted January 5, 2016 by Briana in Reflections / 2 Comments

Note: I shared some of this playlist in a previous post, but since the Blood and Water playlist got a post of its own, I feel like the Reflections one should, too. Also, I’ve added more songs. Enjoy!
Novel Playlist: REFLECTIONS

love making playlists. Like I’ve mentioned before, one of the first things I do when I start a new WIP is make a playlist to listen to while I’m working on it. And since I just started working on Reflections, I just had to share the playlist I’ve created.

Creating a novel playlist is a great way to get you in the mood to write your novel. As soon as I press play, my brain knows it’s time to get into the zone. I make sure to only listen to this playlist when I’m writing Reflections, so the association is set in stone. If you’re feeling stuck with a project, try putting together some songs that remind your of your story so far.

For my Reflections playlist, I chose songs based on their lyrics, tempos, and moods. Check out the track list below.


1.  Waiting for Love by Avicii 2. Shut Up And Dance by Walk the Moon 3. Elastic Heart by Sia 4. Fight Song by Rachel Platten 5. Photograph by Ed Sheeran 6. Vintage by High Dive Heart 7. Hold Me Down by Halsey 8. Roses by The Chainsmokers 9. Smooth Sailin’ by Leon Bridges 10. Ghost Town by Adam Lambert 11. Majestic by Wax Fang 12. Fools Gold by Fitz and The Tantrums 13. Seven Wonders by Fleetwood Mac 14. No Rain by Blind Melon 15. South by Hippo Campus 16. Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival 17. Swing Life Away by Rise Against 18. Not in Love by Crystal Castles 19. The State of Dreaming by Marina and The Diamonds 20. Recover by CHVRCHES 21. Mirror by Ellie Goulding 22. Devil May Cry by The Weeknd 23. Silhouettes by Of Monsters and Men 24. Shelter from the Storm by Bob Dylan 25. The Sound of Silence–Reprise by Simon & Garfunkel 26. Shake It Out by Florence + The Machine 27.

  1. I’ve never made a novel playlist before because I can’t multitask at all (even though listening to music and writing isn’t really multitasking). Reflections sounds awesome and I can’t wait to read it! But for now I guess I’ll just listen to it’s soundtrack 🙂

    • Aw, yeah, sometimes it’s hard to write while listening to music. I know a lot of writers who can’t listen to music when they write because they find it too distracting. And thank you! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it once it’s been released!
