Sometimes I listen to music while I write, and other times I like it quiet. There are times when nothing but the sounds of nature will do. My husband likes to listen to nature sounds mixed with piano, such as rain or ocean. I helped him discover some videos on Youtube that mix sound, music, and images to create calm.
Here is the list for you.
Create your own ambient sounds of nature by using the sliders found here. Click and give the various types a listen. http://asoftmurmur.com/ Add a little wind, a little bit of waves, and some medium thunder.
