I didn't listen to music while writing.
Lately, however, I've been tuning out the outside world and listening to moody music. Odd. Normally, that would drive me nuts, distract me, cause me to go off on tangents, divert my brain, etc.
If I'm in the coffee shop, I certainly don't plug the earphones in. But at home, when everyone else is doing their thing, I fire up the MP3 library and pick an appropriate play list.
I'm curious: who listens to music while writing? If you do, what's on your play list?
