Where Do You Write?

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.

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 🙂
