It is extremely rare for me to have anything on while writing. It's the way I like to focus on word and subject details. Some people aren't distracted by the television or listening to music; I just focus and refine thoughts better while writing in silence.
I generally don't have music on while writing. I have doors or windows open and hear sea gulls and various other flying creatures and the sounds of outside. Sometimes I play music while browsing or cruising through the forums, it varies with my mood and time of day. I like every form of music and enjoy listening to new artists. I tend to go through phases and will listen to a certain artist/band for a while then switch to something different. I recently went through a Beatles phase after I watched a special about the making of Love by Cirque du Soleil. Now it's Graham Nash and old Fleetwood Mac songs.
Because most of my hubs are about music, listening to music and watching music videos on YouTube, is part of the research and creative process. If anything a lot of my music hubs take longer than they should because I spend more time listening and watching than actually writing!
That being said I generally have music on in the background even when I write non-music hubs. I find the sound of silence deafening, and I need something to help me focus my thoughts.
I usually listen to country music. I have a playlist that that includes the best in country music with the oldies but goodies, and I love American Idol Scotty McCreery. Today, it's Good Friday, so I'm not listening to any music... it's soooo quite, I can hear the buzzing in my ears. No voices... so far.
Does your music taste change depending on your mood?If I'm happy, I like happy music. I love The Beatles, for example. Then, when I'm feeling down, I like to listen to more acoustic music, like David Gray. It's not...
What kind of music do you enjoy listening to while you are making a Hub?I think music can inspire you to bring out your creative side in writing. I'm looking to see if different music might help me with that personally....
