August 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

As usual, as my birthday grows closer; I notice that I tend to grow distant. Typically, so many thoughts run through my mind. How old I’m going to be, where I am in my life (my actual location, as well as with the goals I’ve set for myself). And, as always, I tend to feel… Read More

July 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

I’ve said it once before, and I’ll continue to say it; it has become so hard in this day and age to find and pick out good, quality music. Certainly, a good turn up or ratchet song is okay. I’ll be the first to admit that Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy gives me LIFE. However, I feel… Read More

June 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

March 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

A bit of 70s soul. Love and good vibes.   I am an old soul, and there’s no denying that. I suppose that growing up in a home with my grandmother, no matter how much good music my generation produced (roughly from 1997 to 2007), it was inevitable that I would fall in love with… Read More

February 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

A little bit of romance, a whole lot of freaky sh*t. ;). For the month of romance, and to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’ve put together an 18 track playlist featuring some of my favorite sexual and sensual songs ranging from Janet Jackson’s 2001 “Would You Mind” to Luke James’ 2017 “Drip”.   I hope that… Read More

January 2018 [Monthly Playlist]

I’ve decided to share monthly playlists of my favorite songs, most of which have inspired short stories (and in some instances, full novels) that I’ve shared and will share here on MyPenWritesNice. Read More
