I thought I’d whip up a quick post with links to a couple of playlists I created in iTunes as a follow up to this previous post back in December 2010, ‘Some of my writing playlists‘, but iTunes appear to have totally destroyed that facility.
So, instead, you’ll just have to do with a screenshot of iTunes and then go hunt the tunes yourself, if you feel so inclined. Not sure where the progress is in all this but who am I to criticise Apple?
The following 3 playlists are mainly deep house as I seem to require a groove to keep the words flowing and the procrastinating stunted.
This is the forth writing playlist I created, so I called it ‘Foursight’. As you’ll see, I’ve stuck with this quirky/unoriginal numbering/naming convention. I created this one in-between novels I think.

A Bunch of Fives
This one fuelled the first half of Blindsided.

Six of the Best
This one kept the fires burning for the second half of Blindsided.
Essential download: Heartbreaker – Crazy P
I’m already in the middle of compiling ‘Lucky No.7’ for the second draft of Blindsided.
Let me know what tunes you listen to, especially if they’re house/ambient related and have a groove that would make the jackboot stamping down on Winston Smith’s face, at least do it rhythmically.
