Do you listen to music while you write?
I am writing a hub right now and am in the midst of deciding whether to listen to music or not. I seem very concentrated in the silence but find myself getting bored. Would music be too much of a distraction? If you do, what sort of music is it?
When I write about something that has to do with a lot of facts and research I need the silence. When it's fun stuff like a poem or story, music is motivating and I listen to what's on the radio (rock stations) but I keep the sound just below medium level so that it's not distracting. Sometimes, though, I get carried away and turn it full blast to enjoy the song.
No, music tends to distract me. It bothers the writing process.
Well, I am mostly like you. If I write music would take all my attention away, because I love it so much and sing a long....so I get muddled up. Therefore I choose not to write and listen to music. Music is a very strong emotional part of me and would inspire me in many ways to write about something, but writing and music....collides.
I almost always listen to music when I write. If I have all the time in the world, I'll usually listen to rock and roll, something like Three Doors Down. If I'm in a hurry, it has to be fast stuff, like Pantera.
Yeah, I often put on Pandora and let it play a variety of stuff for me. If I don't like the song or type of music, I can change it but I don't have to spend any time setting up a playlist so it keeps me focused on writing.
Music is always a part of what I do. I studied in college to music just to keep a pace going and to stay awake. It gave me a reason to look forward to studying. However, I know everyone is different. Now when I write, I just play what songs I'm in the mood for- sometimes mellow, sometimes upbeat..
I do not usually listen to music during the writing process but, I find that It helps me to get into the right mindset. Depending on what I want to write about I listen to certain music to calm my mind or motiavte it into a certain direction. I reccomend anyone to try this because music has an incredible affect on us.
Sometimes, sometimes I have t.v. on and listen to it. Sometimes, I'm homeschooling my girls. Different times, different backgrounds, different moods.
many people do this while thay read and write. this is really distracting..
during study work i dont do this.. in other cases i sometime play music..
I prefer working on the computer with music, also depending on the kind of mood I am in. When it is very quite a bit of music goes well when writing
I'm like Garifalia. When I'm writing about science-related topics that has a lot facts, I don't listen to music because I find it a bit distracting. I listen to soft rock at low volume when I'm writing a story.
During study work I don't do this. But music is a part of my life.
Yes, most of the time, I do listen to music while I write...but sometimes it depends on my mood whether to be in my "silent mode"...
I like to listen to jazz while I am writing and to classical music while I am cooking or reading or studying and to country/blues/grass while I am driving and farming and Latin American or African rhythms while cleaning.....the music helps me to change the mood and prepare me for the activity in hand...
No, not usually, although I have actually written hubs or researched hubs while the television was on. I find it mostly, too distracting. I wasn't able to do that as a kid studying either-I'd pay far too much attention to the music and actually start dancing to the music instead of focusing on homework, haha

I have found music to be a powerful part of my life and have done since I discovered New Kids on the Block when I was like 8 I can get obsessive over music sometimes. When I first heard the band "Cowboy Junkies" I was so deeply moved and I didn't know music could do that! My next total...

When you write, what do you also surround yourself with?For example, do you have music on in the background, the television, and do you make sure your favorite snack is with you? Do you drink coffee or tea? And do you write from handwritten notes, or do you start typing away?
