Songs To Listen To in Certain Genres

I don’t know about you, but when I am writing its takes a little while for me to get into “my zone”. Writing in genres I am not used to writing in also has an effect on how long it will actually take me to get started. Writer’s block is such a common problem, and I wish I had the cure for you all but sadly all of us writers will go through it many times in our lifetimes. If you are someone who never has writer’s block, please give a fellow friend some advice (haha yes that is me!! I would appreciate it greatly!) Well I’ll just jump into it then…

Fantasy:

This is probably tied with one other genre as my favorite to write in. Beware that they don’t all have fantastical words or anything, I just find that they help. This can be said for all genres.
