18 and Over is hosted by Reading Between the Wines
Happy Sunday all, and thanks for stopping by.
Today’s topic is music…as a muse…
Question of the Week: Do you listen to music while writing reviews or do you need quiet?
I rarely listen to music OR have the TV on when I’m writing a review. I don’t really like the distraction when I’m trying to focus on putting words together to form coherent sentences, and trying to keep my punctuation and grammar from being outrageously bad. I also like to say word combinations out loud, so the quiet is more conducive to that as well.
Occasionally, I do break out my CD’s and crank up the volume to help me get into the mood of the book that I’m reviewing. Once I get into the mind-set I’m looking for I turn it off, and start writing.
Ok peeps…if you don’t write reviews on Goodreads or Amazon…and if not… why don’t you? It helps the authors and books you love…do you listen to music while you read?
