Music for Writing: Attention, Creativity, Motivation, and more.


For me, I use music. I’m aways listening to my Spotify playlists.
 
When I’m writing, I  play easy jazz, simple classical flute, sweet French café music, funky blues, or sometimes, James Taylor. (I love him.)
 
The selection of music is critical. Lively tunes can invigorate and may be best when writing fight scenes. Instrumental music is excellent because there are no lyrics to interfere with concentration. Songs with a consistent beat, like pop and rock, often fill me with momentum… increasing my energy level. Even upbeat music helps me keep up the pace.
 
Music has been found to prompt enhanced activity in the right hemisphere of the brain, a region associated with imagination…. That’s where I want to go.
