in the zone?

Postby rhondarightbrainlefty » Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:24 pm

Do you have to have complete silence when you write? To focus?
(i don't...sometimes people call my name three or four times and i'm like 'huh? oh...yeah? what? hi....?") but with other things that require focus, i get easily distracted. go figure

It depends for me. I tend to like it quiet around me. If it gets too noisy, I just stop. It's the same with everything I do, except housecleaning- I need Music!

nothing's better for housecleaning than the TJB!

they really get you moving and keep you moving... it's great to dance your way through the otherwise tiresome chores...

I try to write on the metro but it is getting harder and harder - finally figured out we often now leave the station standing room only. If I can start a poem and am involved I can keep writing when some one sits next to me but if there is already some one sitting down my mind keeps thinking he is reading what I write and my mind shuts down. At home however I need music usually write to jazz or new age
