Normally I listen to music when I write and I hadn't been doing that lately. The music I use has nature sounds in it. They relax me and elevate my mood.
The Solitudes (R) series by Dan Gibson is about the best for me with his "Algonquin Suite" CD being my standby. If I'm stuck or can't harness my wandering mind and need to get something done, then that's what goes in the computer's CD drive.
Yesterday I treated myself to "Harmony" with its cloudbursts, loons, and more than five minutes of howling timberwolves. That may not be to everyone's taste, but it sure is to mine.
From the CD's inside:

It helped a great deal. I got several pages corrected in between checking my email, checking Facebook, checking for new LOLcats, and
But what did I do? Can I actually back up the wild claim of getting some work done?
Well, here's a sample from Biting The Dust:
"Night songs filled the air. A snipe laughed and dived as coyotes spread the news."
