When I write, I have to have complete silence, except for my music of course. I can't be distracted, which is why I like to be away from things like the T.V. I can't always have my way, though. Also, I'm a stationary whore. I have certain pencils that I like, notebooks, folders, etc. I'm pretty adamant about what I get and half the time I don't use them, lol!
Lately, I've been talking to people and just kind of chit-chatting and a couple of them got on the subject of journals. One lady said she was hoping her journal she ordered online got to her in time as it was for a friend. He was almost done filling one and she wanted to make sure he had another so he could continue. "He's a writer, you know," she told me. No, I didn't know, but hey whatever floats your boat.
Another girl told me that she knew a woman who would only write in a certain type of journal and when she discovered they were no longer made, found one similar to it and bought five dozen!
I know we're a strange lot, we writers. But I didn't think really know how far quirkiness went.
So what are your quirks when writing? Do you have to have a specific brand of paper? Pencil or pen? Maybe you can only write at midnight? Tell me, I'd like to know!
Have a great week everyone! I'll see you soon.
