Writing In Hogwarts [NaNoWriMo]
Writing at home is boring. I think we can agree on that. That means it’s time to spice it up – with magic!
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of magic? Most probably it’s Harry Potter. The first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was published in 1997 in the UK. For twenty years, the young wizard, his friends, and his truly wondrous world have taken many readers’ hearts by storm.
With different ambient sounds and background noise mixes, you can bring the wondrous world of Harry Potter into your study!
Writing With Harry Potter Atmospheres
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is, like all places in the world of our favorite wizard, a magical place. And yet, it is also supposed to be a place of learning and studying. The teachers and staff do their best to keep it that way. Unfortunately, the couldn’t prevent all the adventures and battles, but hey, they tried!
Nonetheless, this magical school provides many places where students can go to focus and study. With the many diverse ambient noise mixes that the Ambient-Mixer.com users created, you can bring thus studious and magical atmosphere right to your bedroom. Why write in your own four walls when you can go to the Great Hall, a dorm room or the Hogwarts library to bring pen to paper!
Following is a list of some of the most atmospheric ambient mixes from and around Hogwarts.
The Hogwarts Library
Libraries are specially designed to improve focus. They provide a calm and quiet atmosphere for studying, research and, of course, for writing. Let’s add a sprinkle of magic though.
The Hogwarts library is a place where students of the school come to to do their homework, research for papers or study for their exams, O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s . And, in the case of Harry and company, to get information about their adventures and the fight against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
Here is a small list of the various Hogwarts library mixes:
The Common Rooms
As you surely know already, students attending Hogwarts are sorted into one of four houses; Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Each house has their own designated area in the huge castle that hosts the school. Depending on which house you are sorted into, you will find your dorm and common room in the Gryffindor Tower, Slytherin Dungeon, Ravenclaw Tower or the Hufflepuff Basement.
The house of founder Rowena Ravenclaw seems to be the most popular among Ambient-Mixr users. By the time of this article, 650 atmospheres have been created for this Hogwarts house.

Of course, Hogwarts has much more, more or less hidden spots where you can sit down and get work done. And when the weather is nice, certain spots on the Hogwarts grounds or the areas nearby are inviting as well. And even when it’s snoy outside, there is still Hogsmeade!
