Writing Playlist #19

muzack This week I’m trying out a new writing schedule. I hoping for a positive domino effect of change, and I hope to be more productive. I’m working on the tenth chapter of my novel. I’ll do an update about my novel, and other ish in a few weeks. If you’re working on a project and a lot of time has passed since you started… just don’t give up. Keep writing always! No matter what!

I’m also editing a short story that I wrote two years ago. I’ve decided to go back and edit all the short stories I’ve written over the last four years. I also plan to work on some new poetry. I’m trying to keep myself busy with writing stuff, because to be honest I’m not wanting to deal with any real life bullshit.

Anyhoo, this playlist is Nu-Metal themed. Nu-Metal was/is a bossome music subgenre that rulled the late 90’s and early 00’s. I loved the music then and I love it now!

Listening Party: Chris Cornell

Chris The music of Chris Cornell was not only something that could be heard, but also felt in the depths of my soul. I often found solace in his voice and lyrics. His music wasn’t something that I jammed to every once in awhile, hellz no. I listened to that beautiful and intoxicating voice religiously. I turn to him for musical inspiration as I write, read, and when I need something to get me through the emotional turmoil, isolation, and the physical anguish I often feel. So for this special edition of Listening Party, I’ve put together fifty-two jamz (a jam for each year of his life) from his impressive career. There’s jamz from Soundgarden, Audioslave, and his solo work. Thank you so much, Chris, for having such a consistent presence in my life. Rest easy, homie.
