We don’t always write when the mood of our surroundings matches the mood of what we’re writing. It’s hard to write about a group of friends having fun at the beach when there’s a thunderstorm outside. In those cases, a bit of outside help is exactly what the wordsmith ordered, which is why we’ve put together these four seasonal-themed writing playlists to get you inspired!

With the right soundtrack, you can picture yourself immersed in the gentle whispers of autumn’s crisp leaves or give your characters the cosy vibes of winter in front of the fire or strolling through the crisp, snow-filled air. You’ll be able to imagine the blossoming green of spring, where the first bulbs push through the snow, and the rain prepares the earth for the summer’s heat, or write the sun-drenched energy of summer, with beaches, parties, and road trips galore.

Writing Winter

Enter a winter wonderland, where snowflakes dance delicately, and the world transforms into a serene, frost-kissed landscape. This playlist creates a tapestry of soothing melodies and soul-stirring tunes, carefully curated to evoke the cosy ambience and take advantage of the introspective beauty of the season.

Writing Spring

As nature awakens from its slumber, blossoms unfurl, and the air is filled with the promise of new beginnings. This spring writing playlist will is the perfect backdrop for the season’s rejuvenating energy and the joyful spirit it brings.
