Poet Tongue Playlist: Songs For Every Chapter

January 28, 2019

Every writer needs a playlist when writing their novels or short stories. It helps to discuss intense/emotional scenes, get into our zone, and organize the tone per chapter. While I have over 50 songs in my playlist, here are some songs to listen to that describe each chapter in Poet Tongue. This list features popular artists such as Avril Lavigne, Three Days Grace, and System of a Down, but also some of my favorite Native American musicians, such as Robbie Robertson and Indian Calling. Are any of your favorite artists featured? If you are familiar with the novel, which songs should I consider adding?
