Writing in Silence
As everyone is writing this month either for NaNoWriMo, or like me, working on a work-in-progress, I’m curious as to if you must write in silence, listen to music, or need a noisy coffee shop in order to write.
I’m a silent writer: no people, no television, no music. There are a couple of reasons for this. One, I type a few sentences behind my thoughts. So if I’m interrupted, it is a big possibility I’ll lose my train of thought. Two, I can’t concentrate with noise. I get distracted too easily. I have to be able to go into my writer-trance.
Of course there isn’t complete silence. There are a few sounds that I guess I’m used to because I have to really stop and listen to hear them: birds, cars, the tick-tock of the clock on the wall, and my fat cat snoring next to my desk.
Love and Laughter,
