It's supposed to be spring in my book at the moment but I'm listening to Christmas music (Smooth Christmas radio today - it's fab) and I was wondering if it would affect the way I write. Would my poor characters' spring be wintry and bleak? Would they have snow?
I usually have music in the background while I write. I can't have the tv on as it's too distracting but music is fine and it doesn't even have to be on low. If a good song comes on the radio, I'll turn it up and it either spurs me on to write or I stop completely to 'sing'* along.
I'll either listen to the radio or I'll put a CD on - Scissor Sisters or T Rex are my favourite when writing.
How about you? Do you have to have silence? Or do you prefer some sort of noise (tv, songs or even family)?
