Ah, music. Music is a universal language. It can express love, heartache, physical pain, anger, misery, depression, happiness, etc. With that being said, I absolutely cannot imagine a day without music. Because I have over 8,000 songs on my MP3 player (with more added every day), I’ve created mini, sample writing playlists by emotion for you below.

Check back often, as this page will be continually updated as I find more and more songs to add to each of these lists. *smiles*
