Writing to music really seems to divide writers, no matter how experienced they are. Some people can’t concentrate with any kind of background noise, whilst others thrive on it. This of course isn’t unique to writers, but pretty much anyone.
For me, I need background noise, but it has to be my own noise. Other people’s music distracts me to the verge of sheer annoyance. It’s funny because someone else’s music could be my favourite band (Linkin Park, if you were interested!) and it would still get on my nerves. I don’t have a clue why that is, but it really does.
I don’t normally put together a playlist for my writing work, because even though I love music and get really inspired by it, I’m more a type of girl who just puts my MP3 Player on Shuffle and ends up skipping a load of crap. So, for NaNoWriMo I’ve decided to pull myself together and put together a list of music that will hopefully inspire, invigorate and get me writing throughout November and well, I wanted to share that with you.
