“The scariest moment is always just before you start. After that, things can only get better.” ~ Stephen King
Something that never exists in my workspace, I can't work without a perfectly organised chaos.
I love to work in the morning, after my breakfast and two cups of tea I sit behind my screen and I hope not to be staring at it for the rest of the day. But having working hours help with rhythm and in the end, make you adjust to working in those times instead of random ones.
That's the goal, but life always distracts you. What I do use is a headphone, the feeling of my ears being covered help me and the music that plays through it gives me the distraction my brain needs to zero in on my writing. Music also helps to get my creative juices flowing.
Every laptop or tablet that contains a writing program is good to use. Even your phone could work. But I use a mac air, this allows me to write from different places then constantly behind a desk. It gives me the freedom to stay in bed the whole day and write, to sit at the coffee place near my house and get my food brought to me when I ask for. But as I said, every laptop or tablet will work, as long as you can write comfortably on it.
I read different books, some about writing, others just for fun. But the list I have is long. I can recommend mostly the books
Pieces of paper are scattered around my desk, small notes here and there. It's always nice to write them down. Even if I use mostly my phone for it nowadays, it's sometimes satisfying writing something down on paper. It also sticks better in my mind if I do it that way.
Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture.
