I can’t write without music

I can’t write without music

I listen to the same songs.

On repeat.

Hundreds of times.

Thousands of times.

I listen to the same song, so it doesn’t get my attention.

I listen, so it gets my brain to go somewhere else.

Do you listen to music when you write?

Or do you prefer the sound of silence?

For me right now, I am on repeat with Laura Marling: What He Wrote.

What are you listening to on repeat?
