I have noticed that I like to have movies or the TV on while I am writing...not so much music as something that I can glance up and watch. Doesn't matter what movie...it's whatever mood I am in like now I am in a horror/suspense movies at the moment.
Anyone else notice that they like to have the TV on or music on while they are writing? And if so what? Meaning what kind of music if music, what kind of movies if any special genres, or what kind of TV shows mainly....
I hate having the TV one when I'm working, but I love hearing classical music. Piano is my favorite to work by. When I need some inspiration, I'll go for a bit more rousing, aka Beethoven.
no t.v. when I'm writing, at times I'll listen to classical or jazzy blues stuff or turn on itunes frenchradio80's music.
I turn my WMP on with a playlist of 80's, metal, rock and opera I get totally distracted with the t.v. nothing gets done till later
I thought I would have that problem too Dame but apprently not lol I've seen all of my movies so many freakin' times I don't care to really awtch just need to listen to something...I get more distracted with music than movies lol
I love movies or watching shows where I learn something which takes me away from whatever I'm supposed to do or trying to do (like a Hub) n will sit totally enraptured no way I can jus listen without wondering what I'm missing
Eh watch it a few thousand times and you're good to go HAHAHAHA I notice that when i'm not watching and just listening I pick up things from the movie...just did from the movie I'm watching now LMAO
I watched Ever After quite a few times got my sons sick of the movie, roflol...but I love the courting scenes. (sigh)
Yea the courting scenes in movies are nauseating and sweet lol but hey that is what we women like lmao
Where did those practices go long ago, growing dim as a dying ember, once upon a december.
that was nicely written Dame and sadly so true! But there is still hope...we just have to force it back into our sons lmao and any guy who dates our daughters. lmao
Ahh..yes I taught my boys to look beyond just make up, T & A and $$ lol. They are popular and have lots of friendship bracelets from gals they don't know O..n that line is from that song, once upon a december
Once Upon a december....okay why does that sound familiar? is that Enya or Evenascence can never spell that lmao...
And once I have kids i will be teaching them the same thing
Think of the movie...Anastasia was my daughters favorite movie yes, one day when you have children, you may be required to sit, eat popcorn and watch their favorite movies 10000000 X
sadly I have yet to see Anastasia and I love those kind of cartoon movies lol...so yea that song doesn't sound familiar
I spotted this, and I couldn't resist mentioning that you really need to see the cartoon version of Anastasia (since you like that kind of movie). The graphics are excellent, and the music is great. I saw it at the theatre with my daughter when it was out, and I was amazed at the graphics. Later, after hearing me rave about it so much, my brother gave me the VHS tape for one of my birthdays. I have all the music in my Mp3 collection.
Very nice ladyauthor very nice indeed. that would distract me thought lol
By the way welcome to hubpages and what a cute kitty you have!
I agree. Classical music is the only music I can listen to while writing/studying. Anything else, like the TV, is too distracting for me. I have been known to put Bach's toccata and fugue in D minor for organ on repeat
ooo nice...well then get that music on Zadrobi and get writting on your hubs lol
lol I wish. The only time I'm on here is when I'm doing homework and need a little break. I have debates every week and class all day everyday so I never have time to sit down and get myself to write a hub because I'll just be thinking about some homework that I need to do... By the way... have you ever heard Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah?
For the most part, music seems to be the muse of choice.
Jeff Buckley...Jeff Buckley....nope unless that is the guy who sings it in the Shrek movie. I'm not much of a classic music girl I'm afraid. Don't get me wrong I love it but...I have to be in a certain mood to listen to it.
And hmmm...write a hub about HW
It's not classic... just go to youtube and listen to it really quick.
Jeff Buckley is fantastic! My favorite song is Grace, but Hallelujah is very good as well.
As for background: Music yes, TV no. Anything visual is going to make it impossible for me to write. Sometimes even the music is too much though. Must mean I'm feeble-minded...
Just listened to it and yes it sounds really nice....but it reminds me of Shrek...who sung the song for Shrek?
And yep I am a weirdo! lmao no one likes watching TV or movies when writing? Am I the only one?
If it's night I have the tv in the background (and don't pay attention to it). It it's day I have talk radio in the background (and don't pay attention to it). When I'm through writing I'll listen to music on the PC (and pay attention to it).
When I listen to Chopin, he helps me ease myself into visions to help me write. But sometimes yes, I too find myself writing more often in loud hecktic environments; like T.V. but also public places, in my classrooms when everyone is talking and in loud cafe's. I'm not sure what noise triggers my poet to come out, but hey, whatever works right!
I listen to both types of music when I write. Country and Western. Some of it makes me laugh, but otherwise I dont pay any attention to what is on TV or radio when I write. Its like time stops and then boom when I am done several hours have passed.
Anything can be playing in the background, anything at all, and if I'm wrapped up in my writing, I will not hear it. I am like a mad scientist when I write. It all comes to me in a rush and I sit down and write like a crazy woman and nothing can stop me, or distract me...pretty bad actually, especially when you have kids who are trying to get your attention

Do fall to sleep more easily with background noise or silence?I like the hum of a fan when I sleep. Do fall to sleep more easily with background noise or silence?

What music, if any, do you listen to while writing?What kinds of music do you find most enjoyable while working or easiest to develop a good work flow to while writing? If you prefer not to listen to music while writing or working in silence, why?

How much TV do you watch?Do you have certain programs you hate to miss? Do you have the TV on as background noise? Do you watch it mainly for news or entertainment?

Hi, I wonder how many people find that they cannot write in total silence? I have to have musicor something even if it is only background noise. I always wrote with six chidren running round me and I was just wondering if it's simply a habit that I have got into over the years.

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.
