Me too!

But silence is too quiet for me. My middle ground is MyNoise.net and the MyNoise app. :)

Some great suggestions here. I love peaceful ambient music to write to, of any genre.

But is it just me that also likes to write to youtube coffee shop background noise? There are a few out there, and you get a favourite, it lasts for an hour - perfect for drifting away to and waking up an hour later a thousand words down the track!

This is favourite at the moment - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOdLmxy06H0 - helps to have decent noise cancelling headphones, and you're really there.

Believe it or not, some of my most productive 'in the zone' moments happened while writing in a crowded McDonalds. Somehow, within that smorgasbord of human white noise, it becomes easier for me to find focus.

Best,

I don’t know the second, but I really love the first … but not for writing to … while cooking, doing the washing up, doing a crossword …
