Do you listen to music when writing?

For me, it's weird. The right music is useful for setting the mood, but when I'm writing, it's distracting, and I find that finding the "right" music a wonderful time waster. LOL! not unlike this question!

No, I don't. I doubt if I'd hear it, anyway.

Sounds like me. I'll often start with music playing, but about five minutes in I find it too distracting. I have trouble shutting out background noise (especially music). As for the "right" music, for a while (years ago) I always started with a Chet Atkins album "Street Dreams" and one particular song on it, I think "Classical Gas." By the time the record player got to the next song I was ready to turn off the music.

It's very much mood based for me. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. When I do the choice tends to be at one of two extremes: either classical (music only, I'm not an opera fan), or maybe jazz, or I go the other end to really up-beat. The energy of someone like Paramore (I'm somewhat out of their usual demographic, I fear) can be just what I need when the going's good.

But what I'm suffering from at the moment isn't based on music, and isn't writer's block as I'd ever imagined it ... it's life block. I finished a novel about a year ago, but haven't found the time/head-space to get it beyond 2nd draft ... mostly because it needs a sequel ready before I would publish it (the story isn't really finished yet), and I haven't gotten anywhere with that. Life keeps getting in the way.

Sometimes, but usually to drown out TV or Talking. It's not my most productive time. For that I like to sneak away to the local library where I can work on public computers that don't have distracting games/bookmarks/sounds.

I used to back when I was a teenager. I remember throwing up Playlist.com back when I was 13, then my dad got a MAC when I was around 14 and I was listening to his iTunes. But then YouTube started getting really popular, and I was getting a lot more social at school, which made me move to watching videos and listening to people talking in front of crowds while I wrote. Usually TED talks and stand-up comedy.

Now, I listen to Youtube streams and podcasts. Once in a while I'll throw on something like "Internet Insanity" or "Down the Rabbit Hole" when I want to write something weird. I like stuff that makes me think.
