I think it's sad that so few people today really know what silence is, never get to experience it for any length of time. Most are so used to noise that they never give their own brains a chance to work without noise. It matters.

When was the last time you went a full day without hearing another human voice, or music, or the blare of traffic? How about a week?

Lack of silence and solitude is a great loss in today's world. The mind was never meant to function at its best when constant clutter fills the eyes and ears.

Silence is good. It's also hard to come by. I live in the country, but even in the dead of night I hear electricity humming through the walls. :|

When I write, I like listening to ambient music. I like a radio station on iTunes called natures music sky.fm. It plays sounds of nature mixed with flute, wood, and string instrumentals. It gets me in the mood. lol!

I don’t want to be disturbed when writing because I easily get distracted and forget what I was going to write. I think every writer needs that quiet environment in order to write what he wants to write.

Omigoodness, I am the same way. I cannot focus on anything. There are very few book that I can actually just sit down and read them because honestly, I don't like reading unless its a really good fantasy novel. I can't walk in a single direction for more than five minutes without forgetting where I am going. I can't listen to somebody talk for more than two minutes without zoning out. I mean I don't mean to, I just get distracted. But when It comes to writing, I can just sit there, without stopping, without ceasing, with a continuing flow of the Pen for up to three hours on end. It is spectacular. I get lost in my own little world of writing and I love it!!! :D.
My heart is my totem, a blackened beating taunt that soaks the Page with its prevail. Its blood becomes my ink as I stab the Pen into it. I heave forward with my hollow chest, entranced in my decay, sorry to say, that I am a writer of Darkness now.
