Day #10 – What’s on your ipod? Do you write in Silence or Jam like I do?

with one comment

I absolutely adore some of the creativity in some of the calendars and other artwork focused on nanowrimo!!! Todays is…

Thanks stringcatL

Not everybody can write in silence.  I can NOT.  While most people like to read and study in silence.  I am the exact opposite.  I am bored to tears!!! …literally.  I get wrestless and I don’t know what to do with myself.  I tend to take in everything around me when there is complete silence.  The faucet dripping in the kitchen, the car alarm outside, the pink elephants in the upstairs condo (OK…its a nice way of saying the loud !@#&(&*)(&$%^&*() neighbors.  (Yes…they are that annoying)  SIDE NOTE: Remember the housing boom?  Remember when it fell out? Well…they forgot a few layers of sound insulation BEFORE they went bankrupt (uuuuughhh)!!

Back to today’s topic…

So…there must be something playing.  If I want to focus…it must be playing LOUDLY.  It drowns out the world around me (especially my pink elephants, who can be fun if you get to know them).  If I really want to super focus it has to be a song I know. That way I don’t focus on the lyrics!!! Eventually, I tune the music out too. It’s quirky I know.

What tunes do you use for motivation if any?

I have to send a SHOUTOUT to one of my 1st readers who link is Fulid. (I haven’t yet figured out this word or what it means.  Everytime I see it I want to move the “l”next to the “f”).  The mixtape he recommended is right up my alley.  I absolutely love it!!  The Bob Dylan song is genius.  I have a very eclectic taste in music and I love music with a little more …substance or it just has to be fun!! Did I mention loud?  In order to drown out the outside sounds I crank it up, all the way up.  This is probably not a good idea for the longterm health of my ears.

What’s your method of focus? Do you use music? What’s on your ipod?  Engage…

Thanks Fulid!
