What do I listen to while I write?
I know there are writers out there that like to listen to classical music or even their normal music, but I am unable to do so.
I am a music person and because of this, I can’t have music playing that has singing in it and then try and write because I will be listening to the words of the song and most likely singing with it too and then…well, then my writing will go out the window.
It took me a while to find something to write to and I wondered if it’s even necessary, but once I found the perfect sound for me, I realized that I wrote better when I had this playing because I tuned the world out and focused on what I was doing.
When I was deciding what to use, we had a rain storm one night and I was writing with the rain and thunder in the background and I wrote 1500 words without even noticing it. I then remembered that I am most productive when it’s cold, cloudy and raining.
With this knowledge on hand, I went looking for the perfect backtrack to my writing and found it and downloaded it. Now I listen to this every time I write. I also use it when I’m editing someone’s work. It helps me focus and it tricks my brain into believing that there is a storm outside.
So, what is it? It’s an epic thunder and rain compilation that goes on for 10 hours. It’s awesome. You can find many of them on YouTube as well.
That’s it from me for now…
