NaNoWriMo 2013: Writing Playlist

We’re ending the first full week of NaNoWriMo, so to get things moving, I wanted to share the playlist I’m using to motivate myself this year. Every time I do NaNoWriMo (or Script Frenzy or Camp NaNo), I make a playlist I can listen to that inspires the work either in terms of setting, character, or what have you.

This year, I tried to stick with songs from the late 90’s up to 2006, since my project takes place between August 2005 and May 2006. A couple later songs snuck in, but most of the songs fit those criteria.

  1. A New Beginning – Good Charlotte
  2. Bring It (Snakes on a Plane) – Cobra Starship
  3. Where Is The Love – The Black Eyed Peas
  4. I Knew You Were Trouble – Taylor Swift
  5. The Great Escape – Boys Like Girls
  6. Mobile – Avril Lavigne
  7. Holiday – Green Day
  8. Secret Valentine – We The Kings
  9. Nobody’s Fool – Avril Lavigne
  10. The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage – Panic! at the Disco
  11. Pressure – Paramore
  12. Pump It – The Black Eyed Peas
  13. Take Me Out (live) – Franz Ferdinand
  14. Born For This – Paramore
  15. You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid – The Offspring
  16. Sweetness – Jimmy Eat World

My word count progress the morning of Saturday, November 9 is 5,430. What’s your current NaNoWriMo word count? What music is driving you this year?
