It is officially NaNoWriMo! I spent the weekend scribbling away, in a happy daze surrounded by the world my novel sucked me into. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of writing daily, and love the discipline that comes with participating in these events. My happy writing place is the writing nook I have created in my office at home; my desk stacked with books pertaining to my novel (like genres I’ve been studying, research books, etc.) and the countless notebooks I have been outlining away in. Adorned with candles and twinkle lights, I have created the perfect ambiance to ignite my imaginative soul.
As I prepare to embark on a weekend writing retreat for NaNoWriMo on the beautifully inspiring Oregon Coast, I will be packing with me a plethora of items to help set the mood that is conducive for writing while away from home. What settings do you write best in? Are you the kind of writer who can plop their computer down anywhere, plug in some earbuds, and are good to go? Or do you need just the right place and items to set the mood to get your creative juices flowing?
6k down, 44k to go! Happy writing! 🙂
