Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa

Man-o-man... Another month. I am such a horrible procrastinator. I apologize to all those who read our blog. Oh, well. Unfortunately, I have no idea how I am going to keep up with this... The rest of October is busy... Onto other topics, I am going to continue my choose-your-adventure at some point. I am trying to get ready for Nanowimo and that will include typing all of the work I have written into the computer. I have it all on a notebook right now. So I am probably going to continue Lein after November.

So lets talk about writing. How do you like to write? I mean this in many different ways. What do you plan? Where do you like to write? What kind of atmosphere do you like to write in? Music? Food? A cup of tea or coffee? Do you fly by the seat of your pants or do you write out a detailed plan? For me, I like to have a rough plan, music, tea and relative quiet. I think that it allows me to focus on what it is I am writing. Do you think that it effects what you write or your style? Think about it. If I am writing a ominous scene, then I dispense with the tea and turn on Fireflight. If its romance, berry tea, and some Taylor Swift or Owl City, and for action I go with some TobyMac and Manic Drive. So what do you like to do? Do you have a writing time everyday? Do you have a spot you go to?

Sorry for the short post... I'll do my best to keep on posting this month.

  1. I like to write in an empty room with no noise. Music draws me in, so I can't play music and focus on my writing at the same time. Nor can I eat/drink while I write. All I have around me is the book (duh), pencil, and a nice, thick thesaurus.
    And, um, what's a 'plan'? :D
    I do have a general plot for the whole story, but I mostly plan only a chapter at a time.
    If I need to get in a good mood for a battle scene, I listen to some video game music before writing. :)
    Thanks for posting! -Abby
