The Writers Circle: Sounds or Silence

TWC
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:

Some writers prefer to write in complete, uninterrupted silence. Others listen to their favorite music in order to set the best atmosphere for writing. Still others prefer or need to go to a noisy cafe to write.  What about you? Today we want to hear about the environment which works best for you when you want to write.

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

This week’s topic is:

An increasing number of authors are turning to Kickstarter to fund their own publishing efforts.  Would you support a Kickstarter book?  What would you expect in return? Would you consider using Kickstarter to fund your own book? What would you consider offering as an incentive to potential supporters?

This week’s topic is:

When you write, do you need to have music or other noise in the background? Or are you the type that prefers the only sound you hear when writing to be the sound of a pen going across the page or fingers tapping on a keyboard? Have you come up with any theories as to why you have this preference for noise or silence when you are writing?
