Resources for Writers

I’ve spent a lot of time saving, collecting, and making different resources for writers. This page will be the hub for all of those things. I’ll try to add to it as I discover and/or make more things. Hopefully they help you with whatever amazing project you’re in the middle of, my little voyager.

The Playlists

Contemporary

let’s drive across the world | you drive, i’ll control the tunes | i do believe it’s time for another adventure
background songs for reminiscing | crazy, stupid friendship moments | i don’t want to let you go

Emotional

hide under a pillow and lose yourself | writing a character sob story | my heart is broken
i watched him die | holding their lifeless body | i don’t want to say goodbye
should i do the easy thing or the right thing? | decisions, decisions | we all must make the choice between the hard thing and the easy thing
roll the credits | the story is over now | nothing ever really ends, we just don’t get to see the rest
the last scene before the credits | some dramatic voiceover | drone view of a city
finding hope against all odds | look up, child | there’s still a reason to believe in doing good
i’m having a soft moment | gentle music to accompany tears and hard decisions

Fantasy

vampire street fights | learning how to kill a vampire | avoid the garlic
swept away in an adventure | there’s definitely dragons | and wands | and lots of magic
one with the wolf pack | i belong in the wild | you can’t contain me
i am not fragile | you have no idea what i am capable of doing | just because i wear a crown doesn’t mean i’m useless

Romance

cute, dating songs | soundtrack for the YA contemporary romance of your life | so in love
after a bad breakup | in a puddle of tears | i thought he was my forever
for when your character is finally over the breakup | i’m only a little bitter | living my best life
forbidden romance | i’ll always be a little bit yours | yearning for you in my dreams
heart eyes | i want you now | can i kiss you forever?
they’re both sick but in different ways | i know we don’t have forever | let’s live while we’re young

Thriller

running from the cops | adrenaline junkie | on the run | don’t get caught
feeling kinda punk | the only time i ever act like a rebel | maybe i should get a black leather jacket???
let’s start a revolution | big, bad government | bad guys wear white
dirty, gritty street fights | punk rock | fight me, loser
clueing for looks | running around the city to solve the mystery | the game is afoot
marching into battle | fate of the world rests in your hands | this is for everyone i’ve ever loved
we write our own stories | you can’t stop me | but i’d like to see you try
