Breaking Your Concentration
I mentioned in a recent post that I like writing with music in the background as it keeps my subconscious from getting bored.
A lot of the time, my laptop is set to play a random compilation from the albums on the hard drive. Most of the time it works fine: songs play, I listen with part of my brain and write with another bit.
