Script Stable Audio Timers

Writing Productivity Hack to Help You Focus.

If you've already read our Background Noise Article, you'll know that we've recently released a series of Script Stable Audio Timers on YouTube to help keep you accountable; allowing you to focus on your writing instead of the clock. 15 Minute Intervals of Focus and Background Noise for you to use when you write.

Including: Rain, Waves, Ambient Cafe, and Focus Music.

Now we're coming in hot with more Focus Audios but in the form of Static Noise.

Most people are familiar with White Noise but a lot of people still don't know the delights of the other colours offering more variety in pitch and frequency.

When the Script Stable team first learned about the power of Static Noise and how it could help with focus (especially effective for neurodivergent writers) it was a serious game changer. Our favourite to work to is Brown Noise but try them all before you take our word for it. We are delighted to providing these free audios because we know how helpful they've been to our own productivity.

Please enjoy our newly released selection of Brown, Pink, Green, and White. Let us know in the comments which is your favourite to write to.

And if you haven't already checked out our other audios, then give them a go too: Rain, Waves, Ambient Cafe, and Focus Music.

Setting timers for writing is a proved method that we swear by here at Script Stable. Also creating a routine, like grabbing a drink and setting up a timer before you write can help to build strong habits that increase your productivity and keep you consistent. That's why we've stepped it up a notch and combined both of those elements to help you with Audio Timers.

Here is some more info on Static Noise:

The concept of using static noise to aid focus and productivity is based on the idea of creating a non-distracting background stimulus. By introducing a constant and predictable pattern of noise, it helps mask other visual or auditory distractions in the environment. This can be particularly helpful in situations where a person is working in a noisy or visually stimulating environment, such as a bustling office, coffee shop, or open-plan workspace.

The use of static noise as a focus tool is not limited to neurodivergent individuals, but it has been found to be especially beneficial for people with certain neurodivergent conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This is due to the fact that neurodivergent individuals often have heightened sensitivity to sensory stimuli and may struggle with filtering out irrelevant information, leading to decreased focus and increased distractibility.

The presence of static noise provides a constant, predictable sensory input that can help dampen the impact of other sensory distractions. It acts as a form of sensory filtering, reducing the saliency of external stimuli and creating a more controlled and manageable environment for concentration. The uniform and continuous nature of static noise can also have a soothing effect on individuals, promoting a sense of calmness and reducing anxiety.

Like with anything though, one size doesn't fit all. So it's important to add that while static noise can be beneficial for some individuals, it will inevitably vary from person to person. Some people may find it helpful for focusing, while others may find it irritating or distracting. As with any productivity hack, it's best to experiment and find what works for your own unique needs and preferences. If static noise isn't your bag, busy background noise might work better like Ambient Cafe, and Focus Music.

Let us know how you get on with our Audio Timers or if there are any other sounds you'd like us to supply. Whilst screenwriting is mainly hard work and sheer determination - it always helps to have some hacks up your sleeve, especially on those extra challenging days.
