    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. Any suggestions or music you just enjoy listening to?

    Baroque. Lots of studies suggest that it helps to calm and focus the listener. Check out this site for a list of free baroque listening stations. http://www.live365.com/genres/baroque

    Personally, I don't understand how one can do those two things at the same time . . . I do say 'personally', I understand everyone is different. For me, no matter what I'm doing if I hear music I like I want to listen to it (I mean like stop what I'm dong and listen to the music instead) and if I hear music I don't like then I want to get rid of it. I can't follow the stream of thought I'm trying to order and articulate when I write if there's music I love playing at the same time, the music takes over my interest and attention - likewise when I'm writing my interest and attention is all there. As I said, I recognize everyone is different, but I don't know how someone can write and listen to music at the same time.

    No music when writing. Only TV. That way I can see the emotions, the story line, and use those to influence my writing.

    I prefer deep meditation music when I write.  It keeps me going deeper into myself where my imagination and words live.  It sharpens my ability to focus on the task at hand, and frees me from my distractions. I can breathe and see my story unfold.  It keeps me true to my work.

    Thanks for the ideas everyone, I'll check those out. I understand not listening to music but for me sometimes it helps. I guess sometimes it comes down to my mood too.

    Most of the time I have country music playing softly in the background, not loud enough to ever be distracting. But if I am writing a factual piece with a lot of concentration required, I turn the music off so I can give full attention to my writing. I think everyone works differently based on their personality! smile

    I used to know kids that would wear headphones (or ear-buds today) and listen to music while they did homework. That never worked for me... way back when I was in school...no, not when the dinosaurs roamed the earth either! wink

    I can't listen to music when creating a hub, however I have the TV going on in the background. However, when I'm creating scrapbook pages, I've got my Joe Bonnamassa going on in and OMG. He's awesome. Check him out.

    I do not listen to music when I am working on Hubs. I did not listen to music when I was school. No particular reason, just did not do it.
