Just a thought, but what do you enjoy to listen to while you write? For me it depends on the scene I am writing, however, for most stories/scenes I enjoy listening to instrumental piano or violin. ^_^
I agree, silence is probably more of what I listen to more than anything, but sometimes music does keep things going~For my fanfics I have some playlists of songs that reflect what I'm writing
For roleplaying, I just pick music that fits the scene
More commonly though, I write in silence
Yes to all of this. Just.. Yes. <3<3<3Two Steps from Hell for Epic battle scenes.
Sound Horizon and Shimotsuki Haruka for Mystical, Mysterious scenes
