I like to write with my AirPods in to drown out the cherished sounds of my kids yelling in the background as they play, or scream at each other. Yes, there is sarcasm in that. Seriously, though, I like to drown out any distractions while I write. On occasion, I listen to nature sounds, mostly running water or ocean waves. I have a natural draw to water, and I love the sound of it, even the sound of the plentiful rain we get here in Oregon.
When I write, I don’t care to listen to music with lyrics. I prefer instrumental tracks with a calming tempo. I recently found out two of my favorite television series, Game of Thrones and Westworld, have the same music composer, Ramin Djawadi. If you like the title tracks, you’ll like the rest of the series sound tracks. The music from these shows is fantastic. What is even better, if you listen to Apple Music, they have a Ramin Djawadi Essentials playlist that has all the music in one convenient playlist.
