writing YA

The After Girls Playlist!

headphones I recently did an interview for my friend's great new YA blog, Teenage Writeland. I answered a bunch of questions about avoiding YA cliches, finding inspiration in my own experience and whether YA needs any kind of lesson just because it's for kids (I am a firm believer that it doesn't, in case you were wondering). But my favorite question was about then ten songs I was listening to while I was writing.

So, without further ado... The After Girls playlist!

Some of these songs really encouraged me and spoke to me while I was writing something set in the mountains in the South (Fleet Foxes, Joan Baez, Edward Sharpe), while others were simply on repeat while I was writing (J.Dilla is surprisingly good writing music). Check it out!
