{NaBloPoMo #3} Forever and Always

Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear today?

Yes, in fact, I can't not listen to music when I write. As much as I love peace and quiet, I need that little murmur in the background. I've heard many songs today, everything from the Beatles' "Let it Be" to Jessie J's "Domino". Currently, I'm listening to Shania Twain's "Up!" album on shuffle as I type this up. Even when tackling my school work, I have to have some sort of music playing. Sometimes I just turn on the radio, but even then, I still end up playing my own music because the commercials get distracting. I probably love music just as much as I love books and writing. Sadly, I don't have any special musical talent. That is, unless you count the few years my parents decided to put me through those gruelling piano classes. Though admittedly, I had a tiny bit of talent in that area - too bad I was just too lazy to practice. I just wanted to play Neopets!

A bit of a shorter post for today, otherwise I'd probably go on about how music is for the soul, but that's writing for me. On a completely different note, I'm so sad - I already missed one day of blogging! That means I'll have to blog again today, but it's not the same.

Ah well.

It's so funny because I usually find any type of music or tv or a husband in the room really distracting, but when I'm home alone and ready to write I often find music to be motivating and energizing. Can't wait to read more from you this month.

Hi Cathy!

I think the noise when there are people in the same place just adds up and is just that - noise. But when it's just you, it gets a little too quiet, so the music's welcome. Thanks so much for the comment!

I don't necessarily listen to music, but I always have some sort of white noise in the background. Total silence is too distracting.
