When I write I like for there to be sound. I discovered some time ago that I study very well to music. Often times it was heavy rock music. It covered up all other auditory distractions and allowed me to focus. I have happily found that I can do the same thing with my writing, though my choices of sound have become more intricate. When I choose my sounds for writing it is not all about just focusing. It is about pacing, mood, and environment. I also listen to different things depending on if I am blogging, writing prose & poetry, or editing.
With NaNoWriMo right around the corner I'd like to share a few of the places I have been going to for my writing sounds. I hope you find something useful.
cute, creepy, and dark. Not to mention there are numerous tracks listed under the tags NaNoWriMo and writing. And if you are looking for tracks for specific moods, themes, or character types check out the user The Great Zucchini.
Personally I find it very useful to layer the different sounds. I might play the cafe sounds from Coffitivity and a themed music at the same time to get the rite feel for what I am working on. I hope you find something useful here. Have fun and write a lot.
