Didn't finish your novel this November? Neither did I

Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 by Movies_and_Music

With the start of December comes the end of something else - yet another NaNoWriMo! November is National Novel Writing Month, and if you're like me and didn't finish your novel in 30 days but want to keep working on it, here's some non-distracting music to fuel your writing frenzies.

Enter the Mowo!

Mocean Worker's style of jazz never fails to cheer me up, and also serves as a good soundtrack to writing.

The Sound of Dubstep

I love letting dubstep play in the background while I'm writing; it's never brings my attention away from what I'm working on. See also: The Sound of Dubstep 2

Bonobo makes fantastic ambient music that's both perfect for writing and also some of my favorite music in general.

Lindsey Stirling Lindsey Stirling

Labelled as a dubstep violin artist. This CD collects a lot of her original songs, rather than just covers.


In between Dreams

I don't listen to much folk music, but Jack Johnson is convincing me I should change that. Not instrumental, but also a good companion to any writing session.



Another electronica selection, the songs on Junior are both instrumental and vocal (including songs featuring Robyn and Lykke Li).

This is just a small sample of the great music you can find at your local library. As always, you can find more music (and movies!) by checking out the SCCLD Movies and Music blog.

What music do you recommend to fellow writers?
