Have you ever experienced a moment in your writing world where your mind begins to wander around different ideas and concepts because your space is just too quiet?

There are also those times where the sound of your computer keys, or pen scribbling along the paper will only provide so much inspiration. White noise can sometimes be louder than our own thoughts, and while noise is great—too much can be distracting.

Press play on a few of these songs when you’re faced with writer’s block:

1. Violet, Daniel Caesar






2. Like a Star, Corinne Bailey Rae






3. Floating, Alina Baraz ft. Khalid




4. I will Find A Way, Fred Hammond




5. Summer, the Carters




Still searching for your muse?

Focus your attention away from your personal past, present, or future situations.

You’ll be less tense. Now write!

6. Lost & Found, Jorja Smith






7. Afraid, Xavier Omar






8. CPR, Summer Walker




9. Photosynthesis, Saba ft. Jean Deaux




10. Focus, H.E.R.
