I know not everyone can work with music on but I do sometimes find listening to OST’s and music with few vocals does help.
The last easy task on my NaNoPrep list. If you like to write to music, you need to have it to hand. There’s countless ways to get your tuneful fix these days, from iTunes and other MP3 playing softwares to YouTube playlists and streaming sites like Spotify and Pandora. Get that set up, so that at 00.01 on the 1st of November, you’re ready to go.
I prefer to use Spotify. I’ve got a special chillout playlist with film music and lots of Vaughan Williams.
