I’m just curious to know what (if any) writing rituals other writers have. I don’t exactly have any rituals of my own, although I do like to drink a cup of tea while I write, especially on a rainy day. Occasionally I’ll listen to music without lyrics when writing with pen and paper, but most of the time I write without music. That’s partly because I use voice-activated software when I write on the computer but also because of the fact that I prefer a relatively quiet environment when writing.
How about you?
Do you like listening to music when you write? Or does consuming chocolate help you get the words down?
Is there a particular time of day or night when you feel the most creative or a particular place where you work best?
