    I don't necessarily listen to music. However, i don't mind listen to the slow jazz, or classical, or gospel, cause it gets my mind right. Usually tho, i write because it's triggered by an experience. My fav Jazz song is High Way Blues by Marc Seales.

    I write a lot off my vision and quiet time mostly when the lights low house quiet
    but many times i write when any slow cut is flowing or off Mary J
    i can release a flow smoothly when i'm listening to gospel too but i don't need
    music to write just my space to create from reality and vision .

    YOU KNOW, IT'S STRANGE THAT YOU ASKED THAT. WHEN I WRITE I'M USUALLY QUIET SO AS TO GO WITHIN MYSELF. BUT WHEN I DO LISTEN AND WRITE, IT'S ALWAYS "EARTH, WIND AND FIRE".

    Man, I can't listen to music and write at the same time to save my life. I get ideas from music though. Music starts me. A song may spark something in my mind that makes me feel like writing, but once I get that urge I have to shut off the radio. A beat or flow to a song gives me ideas. Especially jazz with with or without words.

    My experience seems to be in agreement with the others, normally I don't listen to anything as I am actually writing. I may have on music before, and perhaps afterwards, but not during the actual writing process. Good question.

    i listen to music all the time....it is the current that moves my mental process...
    i let myself succub to it's motion...
    but i also write without music....the scibes with the music tend to be more spontaneous for me...
    but then again...i am a bit different....some say that i'm even strange....:lol:
    one love
