Picky, Picky, Picky: Where I Write (and How)

posted by Lucy V Morgan on , ,


When it comes to the writing environment, I am fussy. Almost as much as I am with the writing. In order to write, I need:

Lucy's very professional setup
1) To be in my "office"--which since I hate nothing more than being cramped at a desk, looks like this, left--and I need silence. I might break for a bit of inspirational music (and dancing. Ahem) but in order to hear myself think, it needs to be quiet. Road noise/seagulls/weather racket is okay. Told you I was picky.

Can you smell it? Ooh la la.
2) I need a candle burning. Scented. Jo Malone is okay, but frankly, Yankee is best. Doesn't matter what time of day it is; doesn't matter if it's hot or cold. I currently have a black cherry one on the go (thank you, sister dear) and it's gorgeous.

Apparently, these rules only apply for fiction. I can write emails, blog posts and whatever else with Korean bubblegum pop blaring at a thousand decibels (not that I'd ever listen to that crap. Oh no). We're strange creatures, writers, aren't we...?
