    Interesting that you bring up the music thing. I was just thinking about this last night. I tend to have music playing non-stop while I’m conscious. As you mentioned, sometimes it is a tad distracting when a song I like comes on. But now that I’ve started writing again, I have noticed that I’m listening to music while I write. A decade ago and before, when I would write I often required silence.

    Now if I can just get this “outline” thing figured out. Heh.

      Interesting! I wonder if this is an age-related thing? Greater focus perhaps?

        I would definitely not list focus as one of my best qualities. I am distracted by blinking.

    I still write in silence (what little writing I do), but heck, I turn down the radio to figure out where I am driving to because apparently THAT will help me see where I am going. Maybe I’m broken.

    Art, I need a story. I have so many ideas, I need to shut them up and keep my brain occupied on just the one piece I’m working on, so I occupy myself with shows and movies that don’t require my full attention. Luckily, most television has gone downhill and requires very little of my attention. So much to choose from! (not reality or sitcom type of stuff. The Office gives me hives, for example.) I can do music to, but it can become repetitive.
