  3. Mood Music


    March 13, 2013 by kristin

    Some writers absolutely must listen to music when they write. Others absolutely must NOT.

    I recently read an interview with historical YA novelist Ruta Sepetys in which she was asked if she listens to music when she writes. Her answer: “Never. I know a lot of writers do, but it would distract me. Music isn’t background ambiance to me. I sit and listen intently to every note and aspect.”

    Ever since, I’ve been trying to figure out why I, though not a particular music aficionado, or a music talent agent by day like Ms. Sepetys, fall into the “never ever ever listen to music while writing” camp.
