Music Playlist Favorites: Inspiration on Those Rainy Days ♥

As summer begins to draw near and the lovely rainy days of spring come to a close why not make the most of the last couple weeks of spring with a rainy day playlist to get you inspired. I put together the following playlist with all my favorite songs to listen to during a rainy day on playlist.com so you can easily listen to all my favorite songs all in one place 🙂 None of these songs have profanity or suggestive language so don’t worry when you click play. I hope you like some f the songs I picked and I helped you discover new ones. A few of the songs are not at their best quality so if you run into this problem I suggest you just search the song on google and listen to it on youtube. Stay tuned for a rant about a music player I tried out (Spotify) sometime this week…

If the playlist doesn’t show you may need to install the latest version of flash or just click the nifty “Pop Out Player” button:

Writing Inspiration: Rain ♥

Have you ever woken up to the bright morning sun shining in your eyes coaxing you into waking up, but yet a sense of calm and the world not needing you at the moment washes over you and just makes you wanna stay put? That’s the calm I feel when it begins to rain.  When most people just become more tired and moody and I become more alive and full of creativity. From the first drop hitting the hard pavement to the last drop following all the others away with the wind, I am writing to my hearts content. Something about the way the rain keeps people inside makes me feel more solitary when I walk down the sidewalk hearing nothing but the rain, seeing nothing but the rain, and smelling nothing but the fresh rain. The fact that the rain keeps me in one place just makes me feel more at ease, like I’m not needed at the moment and can just be me for a little.

I don’t know if this makes sense to you, but I know one time or another a writer feels this way when something happens. Whether you find your inspiration on chilly morning walks, or you find it dancing in the rain. I think you should take advantage of this moments, because you’ll never know when they will come again.
