Writing Playlist #27

stars 2 Hey, homies! I’m hella excited to share my Writing Playlist for the week. I have a feeling that my pen will be moving, and my fingers are going to hit the laptop keys in a frantic pace. Especially because last week was such an epic fail for a sista. Let me explain…

There were plenty of ongoing projects that I wanted to work on. Unfortunately, a few health issues had me in a hardcore stronghold for about a week. Mix in a tablespoon of depression, with a massive helping of anxiety, and you have yourself a recipe for not getting anything done. But, I’m determined to crush all my writing goals this week.

I have another eclectic playlist to share- hecks, all of my playlists are often unique, so. You will notice that there are a few songs by BTS. I’m obsessed with them and their music has been my Prozac. 🙂 Anyhoo, I’ve included a pic of the night sky for this post. The pic is a reminder that stars shine in the darkness, so I’m just going to shine on.
