The Writers Circle: Music

One of our goals here at Today’s Author is to help all of the writers among us to do what we love to do: write. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by talking to each other and learning from each other.  Our Writers Circle series is designed to do just that – provide a chance for us to discuss writing, editing and publishing questions.

This week’s topic is:

Do you like to have music playing while you are writing? What is your favorite music to listen to while writing? Do you choose your music based on the type of writing you are doing? 

Let’s discuss this in the comments and see what our community thinks.

  1. I do have music on and it’s usually the play list Spotify pick for me based on my listening history. That’s usually a lot of 80’s ( cause I’m old) pop and some rock or their mood play lists like early morning wake up. I don’t tend to hear it when I’m writing, but interetingly I know when it stops.

  2. It really depends for me as to what I am writing. Music can both sooth and invigorate, annoy and anger. It can prompt me with images I might not have otherwise have thought to include – or it can distract me away from my intentions.
    I used to participate in a writing prompt which used a specific song – years ago – Monday Music Musings I think we called it… really interesting the stories and poetry gained from one song.
