I always find it interesting when writers talk about music and writing. Some people have total silence to write, while others can’t write without music. I fall into the former category. When I’m writing, all music/ background noise/ the world in general just disappears. For other people, it gets them into the right mood and helps them concentrate.
I enjoy R&B and rap. (Yes, I’m one of those people. Yes, people I meet are always surprised about my music tastes too. Yes, I’m aware I don’t look like the type.) But right now, I’m loving Florence + The Machine and their song Never Let Me Go.
No, really. Listen.
I’m not really sure why I like this song… I just really do. It seems like such a sad song, and it reminds of drowning. *shrugs* I usually prefer upbeat happy songs, but right now, Florence + The Machine is… well, music to my ears.
So, as I go listen to this beautiful song once, I want to know what music you’re in love with right now. Is your favourite song a genre you wouldn’t usually listen to? Let me know in the comments!
Oh, and tell me: are you a write-with-music or a write-without-music person?
