If I am at a lake, it seems to help because of the waves...

 

 

I hate noise if there is too much of it. For me, home with my MP3 on or at a public library where there is hush tones. Either way, too much noise gets me distracted. :/

Background noise is kinda something I can't avoid in my house. I have 6 younger siblings (between the ages of 2 and 10) and they are loud so background noise doesn't bother me all that mush and kinda helps...though most of the time when I write I listen to music as well (pretty much anything, heavy metal, hip-hop, celtic music, soundtracks you name it!)...but even then that doesn't block out all that background noise :P

I agree with this. If I want to write an exciting scene, I play fast or exciting music. If I want a quiet scene, or say, a scene taking place in a nice forest, I play calm music or soothing forest sound effects.

Definitely. Most of the lyrics/melodies for songs, and bits and images for major themes for other writings seem to come when I make the 45-minute commute to and from work. Something about engine noise (along with the sideshow of sights flashing before me) that puts me in gear :)

I better explain how I write when driving! I have a notepad open to my right, and without looking, I write large scribble, hoping it's readable for later review. Lyrics/melodies are a bit more problematic: I really need to get a tape recorder. I have to keep humming the tune/sing the words so these stay engraved in my memory for later recording.

That's dangerous for you.
