(Music one listens to while writing.)
Revision as of 15:36, 2 December 2013
Noveling music is music that a writer will listen to while they novel. This music usually helps them concentrate, increases their typing speed, and sets the mood for the scene that they are writing. On the Fact Sheet under Author Info, there is an option for NaNoWrimo participants (Wrimos) to fill in their favorite songs, artists, and genres that helps them write. Many Wrimos prefer classical, dubstep, heavy rock, soundtracks, instrumental, and other genres which do not contain lyrics or words, however there are a few who enjoy music with lyrics - obviously, it depends entirely on the author.
There is an entire forum dedicated to Noveling music called NaNo Soundtracks, where countless WriMos discuss their favorite noveling music, find new favorites, and talk about essentially anything that can connect music with noveling. Some regional forums have threads that talk about favorite novel music.
There is noveling music written specifically for NaNoWriMo called WrimoSongs (NaNoWriMo Songs). However, most of these songs have lyrics and are usually best listened to when you need motivation or just something to laugh at when NaNoWriMo comes to mind. Even then, some Wrimos listen to it while noveling.
Music without lyrics is often preferred over music with lyrics due to the fact that the words of the song can sometimes distract the author from putting words to the novel. However, if the author is used to the song(s), their brain will ignore the lyrics and they will be able to write just as well as any other person.
