I’m Still Here: Songs that Empower Women

This holiday season I have been M.I.A. for many reasons. In the past three months, activities such as, Christmas shopping, school projects and recovering from pneumonia has just been a few stressful parts of my life.  But with every storm cloud comes a rainbow. And I’m getting pumped up for my next novel.

The story is about a badass female running things on the high seas. Yes, this time I’m trying to write in the historical romance genre (and of course, it will be with a twist😉!). Also, I’m excited about my African American leading lady. She is fiercer than a Foxy Brown movie.

[*Side note: I will admit that this may have turned into a procrastination project but it’s justified since it motivates me to write more. At least that’s what I told myself an hour and a half into making this list.]

Anyway, to get me in the mind state of writing about a no-nonsense pillar of strength, I created a playlist filled with woman empowerment beats. Check out “STRONG WOMEN ANTHEMS” ON YouTube.com along with my other fun soundtracks to my previous novels.
