What do you listen to when writing?
What kind of music, genre, artist?
It depends where I am when I'm writing. If I'm at home, then I work in silence - no distractions except the ticking clock and the birds outside.
If I'm working in a public place or on a bus or train, though, I tend to listen to instrumental music, as I get distracted by lyrics and lose the thread of my plot. At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Tangerine Dream and King Crimson, but I want to get some 'proper' classical music as well.
I love to listen to a variety of music when I am writing. The music I choose usually depends on my mood I am in when writing. I mostly listen to gospel, soft rock, jazz, blues, or classical. In my dark moods, I sometimes listen to a little harder rock.
I listen to a lot of different genres. It depends on what I am writing and what mood I am in.
Right now Im listening Al Green.
I prefer relaxing musics when I´m writing.
I actually don't listen to anything. I can't focus on my writing if I'm doing anything but just sitting and writing.

I manage my husband as a producer out here in the Caribbean and he makes a lot of melodious instrumentals... would you listen to instrumentals or do you need vocals on a song for you to enjoy it?
