When I was writing Dominate Your Debt: A Work & Play Book, I listened to a TON of Eminem. Like, SO MUCH.
I had a playlist called “DYD Playlist” on Spotify and it was basically The Eminem Show with a few other songs of his mixed in. I would zone out and write and listen to the same words (so. many. words!) over and over. “Business” was the trigger that let my brain know it was time to, as my writing coach Stella Orange says, shut up and write.
This fun fact really has nothing to do with anything, but I just felt like you should know why Eminem got a shout-out in the acknowledgments of my book. Want to see who else is in there? You’ll have to order it to find out!
What songs can you absolutely not resist rocking out to, even if you’re sitting at your desk and look like a total crazy person? What artists totally motivate you to get sh*t done?
PS – I fully recognize that it would be a little ridiculous to buy a book just to read the acknowledgments! But it’s the day before a holiday weekend so it didn’t feel like the right time to be too serious. 🙂 Happy Easter to you if you celebrate!
