I'm not sure if there's a thread regarding this subject matter, so I apologize in advance if there's an existing thread. There are a lot of things in the world that distract us from writing, but what do you do when you write? Do you have a ritual? Habit? Listen to music? Write in silence? For me, personally, it depends on the scene that I'm writing. If it's an emotional one, I like to put easy to listen music on. For small talk, random conversations and prose, I can write even if there's ambient noise. What about you guys?
