I'm weird. I need music while writing no matter what, or it seems like EVERYTHING distracts me. But when I'm working on outlines, I can't listen to music unless I've spaced out and not really hearing the music.
My current playlist for my current WIP has 45 tracks on it and I normally listen to it on shuffle while I'm writing. Sometimes I just pick a band or singer that I write great with, like Florence + the Machine, Within Temptation, Evanescence, Lady Antebellum, Breaking Benjamin, Firelight, We Are the Fallen, etc.
I listen to all kinds of things while writing, but mostly just a few favorite singers/bands or the songs that go great with my story.
5 songs on my playlist:
1. Bring Me To Life - Evanescence
2. If I Die Young - The Band Perry
3. Sleep Well, My Angel - We Are The Fallen
4. Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift with The Civil Wars
5. Anthem of the Angels - Breaking Benjamin
What kind of music do you listen to while writing? What bands/singers? Do you have a playlist for your current WIP? If so, what are five songs from it?
