What conditions do you need to get your best writing done? Closed door, crowded coffee house? Computer or notebook? Can you just sit down to write, or do you need to wait for the time to be right?
Closed door vs. Crowded coffeehouse
Closed door. With headphones. There's something about staring at a wall while listening to a playlist that shifts between pop and metal, you know? Plus, coffeehouses have pretty people in them. And I am easily distracted by The Pretty.
Sit down to write vs. Wait
Definitely wait. It's impossible for me to just push the words out when I'm not feeling it. That usually ends up in one of two Very Bad Things: 1) I either count how many times the cursor blinks; 2) or write a bunch of words that suck. Epically. The kind you're embarrassed to share with three-month-old babies.
I've tried to change my writing style often, but nope. Doesn't work. Even my muse is stubborn :)
