Reading Techno talk to XDaX about listening to some Johnny Cash and write made me realize--I have to have music when I write, but it can't be stuff I can understand. Example: I listen to Gregorian Chants when writing poetry or to instrumental jazz when working on metafictional pieces. But what about you?

LOL!!! Of course I have to have music!!! usually, without my noticing, my favorite song of the moment gets incorporated in whatever I'm writing (I write mainly stories...) Like even if it's just in passing, like a character turns on the radio, my favorite song of the moment will be on it... or if they're at a club, I usually pick a song that I like to be playing at one point or another.

I have to have my special mix CDs when I write.

When I write, I listen to classical or nothing.

Tracy Chapman.

Or any other earthy, soul-spilling, and completely bewildered emotional woman.

They help me get my heart started and pump the guts into my writing.

LOL!! My favorite artists to listen to while writing: Dan Gibson (Just to relax before I get started...) Chantal Kreviazuk and Evanescence.

Also, bluesy men-folk.

My favorite B.B. King & Eric Clapton 'Ride With the King'

Writing comes whenever it comes. There's no specific ritual I follow when I do.

Music is the very essence of my being. I love all music, and listen to it whenever I can. It helps to shape my perception of reality... horray for music!

music has a big influence on my writing. usually i try to write something, then listen to a good song and think "i can't do that" and give up

i can't listen to anything when i write creatively, or if i do it has to be wayy in the background. when i write essays and stuff though i HAVE to listen to soemthing. generally not anythign with words becuase then i sing along and get distracted

I don't HAVE to listen to music when I write, but it improves the quality of my work when I do.

Most of my characters have songs I associate with them. Hmmm.

Lance Artrutrus Chang.

I tend to associate him with Brown eyed girl (his girlfriend has brown eyes) Five O'Clock Somewhere (A Jackson J Buffett, and I will play for gumbo(J Buffett)

So I write those characters best with those songs playing.
