What’s Your White Noise?

This week, my wife was out of town for work, and that reminded me very starkly to think about what my white noise is. I work best with music. This probably isn’t surprising, given my series on music I’m writing over on Sourcerer.

My wife’s white noise, on the other hand, is TV on in the background. When really needing to work, she tends to like something she’s seen before. However, even when it’s something I’ve seen before, I tend to get more sucked in, and pay more attention.

Nonetheless, while my wife was gone, I have been watching TV in the background while I write and work around the house. And while I’ve gotten practice at writing with the TV on, as I watched the hours fly by, I realized that I probably still do not treat it as white noise.

This is a good thing to remember. While watching TV works just fine for blogging, as I work on adding more writing to my life, I think it’s good plan on doing some of this writing in the optimum conditions: to write with music!

What is your white noise? What do you like to have going while you write? Let me know in the comments below!
