“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”
Okay, not that kind of setting! I’m actually talking about when and where I like to write. I usually write in my room, propped up on my bed. I find it much more comfortable for long periods of time than say a desk or the floor. I write on my laptop, since I much prefer to type than write longhand. My handwriting is pretty bad anyway. I also love the fact I can copy and paste, and also, I can type faster than I can write. I listen to music while I write since it helps focus my thoughts. I usually pick one song and just listen to that one over and over. 10:00pm to 12:30am is my time to write since I’m a night owl. (and besides, being a homeschooler, I can sleep in :)) It’s nice and quiet with no distractions. I’m also not tempted to get up and find something else to do, since it’s so late.
If I’m not at home, and I get a great idea, I write on my media player. I downloaded an app called “Writer.” It’s pretty much a basic word processor for your Android device. I love it! I couldn’t ask for much more in a writer app. It is completely free, which makes it even better. 🙂
When I am at home, I have a “writing buddy”. My cat, Precious, has to sit beside me when I write. She jumps up as soon as I grab my computer and settles herself down next to me. She usually gets bored with watching me pretty quickly and goes to sleep!
