writing ideas for teenagers
I’ve been listening to the “French Cafe” station on Pandora lately and found this talented musician. These are very relaxing songs for writing.

My last set of writing prompts were two poetry readings done by Dame Judi Dench and Jeremy Irons. This set are done by Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Hiddleston (yes, “Loki” from the Marvel series of movies: Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World).
There is an awesome new app for poetry lovers of all ages called iF Poems. You can find it on the Apple app store for only $0.99. I love it because it has poems grouped by either poets, age ranges or topics. There is a feature to record yourself reading the poems or you can listen to recordings by several actors: Helena Bonham Carter, Billy Nighy, Harry Enfield and Tom Hiddleston. I highly recommend the app for parents, kids, teens, teachers or any poetry lover. It’s fantastic.
For now, please enjoy these two readings:

You can’t help smiling when you hear certain songs. These songs have that effect on me. I call them lovey-dovey because they are sweet romantic songs. These are great writing prompt songs.
A BLAST from the PAST! As a kid, I loved listening to the music that my mom enjoyed when she was growing up. That meant that I got to know a lot of music from the 50’s and 60’s. I was thinking about all of those songs that made us dance in the car or in the house, or almost wherever we heard it. So here are a few links to old songs to use while you’re writing.
“I Can’t Get Next to You” by The Temptations (Photo from en.wikipedia.org)
mmm…I have to throw this one from the 70’s in for good measure. I never liked this song until my best friend told me about how she and her sister-in-law tormented her brother by singing along to it when it came on the radio one day. I immediately began to love it and still do, only because of the story:
Ok everyone, have fun!
