Practice for Nano

Why is it on the days you think you have no words in your head, that you sit down on a project you have no intention of working on, and the next thing you know it's past midnight and you've gotten 1500 words in on it?

More and more, I understand that the key to my nightly productivity is having the right score playing in the background. The wrong music will halt a project faster than a computer crash. The correct music slips me into the right frame of mind, almost without me knowing it, and off I go. Whether I meant to or not. Boy, the debt I owe these composers that I love so much. Sure, they score movies, but they also underscore my stories. Without them, I'd get nowhere.
