Hello all! I know a lot of people are musical writers -- they just can't function without the noise! I read a lot of suggestions regarding music, everything from classical to rock to new age. But none of it worked for me. Anything with lyrics threw off my game and made it harder for me to concentrate. Even the new agey stuff distracted me! When I realized I always wrote better outside, I wondered if it was because of the noise. I recently found a website that has 14 random nature sounds -- from birds to wind and leaves to rain and thunder -- and it works so wonderfully for me! What do you listen to -- if anything -- when it's time for you to write?
