7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

I find music too distracting to listen to it while I write.  I prefer silence.  I’m one of those people who can’t help but stop and give the majority of my concentration to whatever music is playing, so I have to have none if I’m going to concentrate on anything else.

I do find that music is excellent for giving me story ideas.  I listen to it all the time when I’m not writing, and I like to make up playlists to accompany my novels – but that’s more in the light of “stuff I do to keep up my enthusiasm for the project” and goes alongside making icons, making book trailers and picking photos of actors to represent my heroes.  A playlist goes in the “making up a fun scrapbook” part of the process, but not with the actual writing.
