Sometimes noise just distracts you from your writing.
If you’re that finding noise is disrupting your train of thought, here’s a couple of ways to get back on track.
- Make your surroundings as quiet as you can. Turn off phone/TV/radio. Mute computer sound. Unplug that noisy clock.
- Use white noise. Play a recording of nature sounds, or quiet new age music designed to cover other sounds.
- Put on headphones. You don’t have to play music through them, just use them to muffle the distractions.
- Go someplace quieter. The beach. A distant mountaintop. A bunker. The Fortress of Solitude.
- Send your beloved noisemakers out. Give them money for the movies and write up a storm while they’re gone.
The important thing is to know if you need quiet to be at your best as a writer, and, if so, create that quiet for yourself.
