For the Love of Writing - With Music

I can't write when it's quiet. But neither can I write when the TV's on. I watch very little television. After a full day of teaching, my evenings are for writing, so I can't afford too many distractions.

However, I have to have my music. Soft background music. Sometimes by a particular artist, but usually motion picture soundtracks.

I have my iPod sitting on a base with dual speakers. Once it's on, I'm able to concentrate. And now that I think back on it, when I was in school and college, that's how I used to study -- with the stereo going constantly.

And if I'm very lucky, a song will inspire me for another story. :D
