The last week has been a crisis of broken things for me.
First my Kindle died.
Then my laptop.
Lastly, the carport collapsed.
I hope this trend doesn’t continue.
Since this started with my Kindle, I’ve learned how much of a creature of habit I am. I’ve done little reading (no Kindle to read on). I’ve done no writing (no laptop to write with).
Not because I don’t want to. I received a reviewer copy of one of my favorite author’s new books. But every time I go to read, I realize I have to use my desktop computer or my phone.
Same with writing. I’ve got exciting ideas for the next few scenes. But I’d have to sit at the desktop computer.
Maybe you’re not a creature of habit, but most writer’s I know have their “writing space.” It may not be an actual spot, but it’s a mood. A climate. An environment.
While my writing environment frequently involves a child climbing on my head, sitting down in the living room while My Little Ponies is playing isn’t appealing to me.
But until I get the laptop fixed, I’m going to have to find a new environment. Blogging here today is a start. Kung Fu Panda for blogging mood, anyone?
