Music, Manuscripts, and Magic with Shawna Thomas — 10 Comments

  1. Interesting post! I used to write to music but in the past few years I find it’s better for me to have quiet. I do like to cruise the freeways and listen to music LOUD though when I’m working out a plot issue!

  2. I get too distracted when I listen to music. I tend to want to stop whatever else I’m doing & just lose myself in the song or sing along.

  3. Thanks for sharing your writing experience. I’m a complete music junkie, so listening to music is usually an integral part of the writing process for me. I use YouTube and Pinterest to create playlists for the stories I’m writing. Then sometimes, I just need something fast-paced and fun that keeps my fingers flying without overthinking every scene, every word.

  4. Shawna, thanks so much for taking over for the day!

    I’m always fascinated by all the people listening to music while they work. I drive around with the radio off, talking to myself when I’m plotting. I sit in the house in silence while I’m writing. All that quiet actually makes me feel like I’m losing my mind. I might try it your way for this next book.
