What are your writing habits? Inconsistent, sporadic, haphazard but always with the best intentions. Sitting on my deck with a cup of coffee and determination seems to yield the best results.
What equipment/supplies do you use to write? Hands down, my preferred method of writing is in a composition book with a colored (typically pink) pen. Ultimately, my thoughts need to be transferred to the computer if they plan to go anywhere, but generally I begin with a pen in my hand. It is mightier than the sword, after all.
What do you need and want in a physical space? I don’t discriminate when it comes to writing. If I have an idea or thought I deem important, I write it down no matter where I am or what I’m doing. That may mean sending myself a text, or jotting it down on a napkin or writing it in my journal. If I had to choose the ideal writing atmosphere of course it would be a villa in Italy. But truth be told, I probably wouldn’t be able to come up with stuff to write about as easily as I do in the chaos of my daily life. When I’m knee deep in life, trying to figure it all out –that’s when the ideas come flooding in.

Wield or yield?

My feelings exactly
I love the last sentence because I can relate to it. I think you also use writing as an escape, at the same time to gain courage to deal with reality. This one’s a nice post! 🙂
Thanks! I seem to find that if I have “time” to write, I can’t think of anything to write about!
I think it’s so great that you hand write. I have been thinking about going back to that as a way of journaling. It is so different from typing for sure.
The truth is, I’m not a very good typer. My fingers have a hard time keeping up with my thoughts so it’s easier for me to write by hand! 😉
I’m the same about preferring to write in a book and using whatever other kind of paper is to hand if I’m without it. I don’t think I have ever used a pink pen in my life, though. 🙂
