A lot of my friends are discussing what they are listening to while they write, be it the LOTR soundtrack or something a little heavier...I personally do not listen to music while I write and I…Continue

"I wholeheartedly agree with the instrumental option. The lyrics just get in the way sometimes.   I'm partial to post-rock in general, especially while doing fiction, with Explosions In The Sky being my go-to choice.  I've found…"

"Loud music on first drafts. It helps me get lost in it. Quieter music if stuck or revising a difficult part. I get lots of prompts from music when I'm not writing, new story ideas, different directions on current stories. I get motivation for…"

Nick Garrard replied to Vicki Bartram's discussion Music while writing
"It has to be instrumental - words are far too distracting. And it can't be thunderous or I get all swept up. I find I listen to a lot of ambient, gurgly electro - stuff like Boards of Canada and The Advisory Circle. It's nice sometimes to…"

"I am afraid I do not listen to any music when I write. I have to have absolute silence. Music affects my emotions too much to allow me to write properly. I have to feel the words when I am writing, and create the pictures, and they only come out of…"

"I listen to music while I write. I am often influenced by my side feed when a friend posts a spotify or youtube suggestion. Sometimes it distracts, other times it frees the mind."

Ann Feinstein replied to Vicki Bartram's discussion Music while writing
"I tend to listen to music that falls into one of 2 categories.  Either classical or other music that has no words, or words in a language I can't understand; Israeli Dance music."

Terry Shane Woolard replied to Vicki Bartram's discussion Music while writing
"I personally can go either way.  Both help me, and both are needed throughout my writing time.   When I was writing my first novella I spent the first 20,000 words in complete silence.  The next 30,000 were spent listening to Rob…"

Luke Reynolds replied to Vicki Bartram's discussion Music while writing
"I write with music, I also welcome the distraction it brings. My writing may suffer as a result, and I know I may have lost respect here moving forward because of this, but I don't want to be restricted by a single train of thought."

I have to have silence, which is weird as I'm hugely inspired by music generally. I do listen to heavy stuff prior to writing sometimes. Especially if its a dark subject matter. Sometimes I need to get in a certain head-space. This doesn't come naturally to me to be honest. Really enjoyed reading the different replies though. Great topic for discussion.

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
