IT'S ABOUT WHERE YOU WRITE

I don't know about you guys, but I am very picky about the places where I write. I only recently moved my computer back in my room, due to the cold winter and thus, my amount of actual novel writing has improved. I think it has to do with writing in solitary instead of the living room where everyone can peek over my shoulder constantly.

Another thing that I noticed with me is that my writing mood and progress is also dependant on my surroundings and the desk I use. If I am not comfortable writing in a place then I can forget all about my concentration. I guess it is because I am somewhat of a paranoid writer.

So, what is my solution to all my writing weirdness?

  • Rearrange my desk (I do this often)
  • Buy new desk (I traded desks with my mom. Of course I needed the bigger one)
  • When in doubt, make over your writing space (Which I am in the process of doing?)
  • Change your desk location (Which I also tend to do often)

I know that my solutions are a bit extreme, but I have a limited amount of writing space and I need to make it perfect. I need to have my writing space feel like my sanctuary, my special place of escape. Right now it is dull and there is no prospect of great views or beautiful scenery in my future.
