On Writing

  1. As far as writing in silence…no. Silence invites gremlins.

    I have a series of playlists designed for mood, and I shamelessly use them as a crutch. When I want a peaceful moment I reach for soft, meditative music. When it’s plot building I prefer techno. And I have a big library of trailer music (Two Steps from Hell is great) for those grand, epic scenes when I want something larger than life.

    But that’s just me. πŸ™‚

    1. Silence does indeed invite gremlins. I completely concur. As for playlists, I do the same thing, except for peaceful moments I have to have metal. Something about contrasts, or at least that’s what I tell myself. I’m writing a novel at the moment that’s all about action, so I’m listening to a lot of ambient music to inspire me. I agree on Two Steps From Hell, by the way. It’s incredible for grand, epic scenes. πŸ™‚

    1. Imagine, though, if you were one of those people who needed complete silence or you couldn’t write a word. You’d go stir crazy never being able to write but always having ideas in your head! I’m going stir crazy just thinking about it. Time to put on some Hunters & Collectors. πŸ™‚

  2. That silence-needing friend was me, wasn’t it?
    Going by the comments, I think I’m the weird one (as if we didn’t know that :P). haha

    And what is this website? I’ve never heard of such a thing. I suppose that happens when you’re a hermit . . .

    1. You and your silence-needs. πŸ˜‰ I knew you would recognize yourself in that, if you got around to reading it. LOL. You’re not a weird one. We’re just all different. And stuff. As for the website, I honestly don’t recall its name, but I will see if I can’t find it again, just for you. It was hilarious. I put in a paragraph of my own work, and it spit out the author’s name.

What do you think?
