It’s Day 2 of my Dec/Jan NaNoWriMo adventure. Here are my stats:
Word Count Goal: 3,334
Words Written: 4,499
Wohoo! I am 1,165 words ahead of where I am supposed to be. Granted, my writing isn’t in its top form yet, but that’s not the point of this exercise. I just need to get the words down for the first draft.
When I write, I listen to music. Because I am working on a baseball story, I have been listening to the “Field of Dreams” soundtrack. It has a haunting and sad feeling to it, perfect for the tone of my story. I also like to listen to other instrumental music while writing, particularly film soundtracks. If I listen to something with lyrics, I get distracted.
Here is a link to the “Field of Dreams” soundtrack. It’s perfect if you need inspiration.
What kind of music do you listen to?
