What kind of music do you like to listen to while you're writing?
While I am writing I prefer not to listen to any song but if I am too much interested in listening to any one at that time I would love to listen soft melodious ones. But human being can give attention to one task at a time, when you are too much involved in writing you unconsciously ignore the sounds that are reaching your ears. That is what I think....
If I listen to anything at all, which usually I don't, then I prefer to listen to soft jazz melodies. It is very soothing as opposed to jangled and nerve jarring. Although it could depend on what you are writing since different music has different moods and spirits. It would depend on what you are trying to portray in your writing. But as for this gal, soft and easy melodic sounds or better yet the sound of silence, yea, I'm liking the silence!
I like to hear jazz musics when I write, it does not disturb you that much like pop, rock etc.,
I can put on any kind of music when I write. I have a very eclectic taste and I like a wide variety of music. But it doesn’t matter what kind I put on while I write because when I am immersed in my work I don’t really hear the music. It is background to the thoughts running around inside my head that I am trying to get on paper.
Although I suppose that if I stop for a moment, I could say that somehow that music may have some influence on what I write. If it is happy music perhaps I write happier words. If it is melancholy music I might be writing something more thoughtful. And how about classical music for a wordier paper; using more profundity while Stravinsky is playing? Even though I don’t actually hear the music doesn’t it infuse my thinking on some deeper level?
For me it depends on what i'm writing. One of my favorite sites is playlist.com, I've created multiple playlists for my different moods, or to set different moods. My most frequented is my "evil playlist" for my horror stories. Other times I just like silence so I can let my mind wander.
I don't listen at all when I'm writing, but if I would choose anything it would probably be smooth jazz since it really helps me relax and just enjoy those unusual chord progressions(compared to pop music)

What kind of music do you listen to while writing?Do you write better to a face paced tempo, or a slow one? Can you tell us why?Is there a particular singer or group that you listen to while writing? I tend to do a lot of writing to Barry Manilow. Yes, I said Barry Manilow.

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?
