NaBloPoMo gives out daily writing prompts which helps out a lot when thinking about what to write on a daily basis. For day 3 the prompt asks: Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear today?
My answer is YES.
Music is my buddy when I find myself needing to meet deadlines or concentrate on writing for a few hours. I even sing along as loud as I can while thoughts are running in my head and my fingers are busy tapping away at the keyboard.
I didn’t listen to any songs today though but Kelly Clarkson’s new album is in the CD player right now which I listened to on repeat last week while doing some work.
Before Kelly Clarkson, the CDs on rotation were from Bruno Mars, Norah Jones, Adele, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga. Sometimes I would just tune in to the music channels on Direct TV. I like to listen to Top 40 songs, sing along and sometimes shake my booty albeit sitting down. How I do that, I don’t know. I just do.
It’s a good thing that my husband’s office is located in our bedroom so he doesn’t have to listen to the pop music when he’s doing his own thing.
