A Space Dedicated
Anymore, I like to have a space at home, dedicated to penning my genius down on paper. I've read a variety of different topics and texts on such topics as fung shui to prose about writing, creativity, imagination, etc. You name it, I read it and they all say the same thing: find what works for you.
For example, I like to sit in a nice sturdy chair at a desk or table. If I sit on a couch or lounge somewhere else, my mind has a tendency to wander. When I'm brainstorming, I like to walk around, so my space needs to have room for that. I research a lot, which means that I spend a lot of time on the internet - which is bad. So if I have an extended encyclopedia in my office, I can turn to that first and (hopefully) cut my internet time in half.
Mostly, I like books. I love books. I love to surround myself with books. I love to swim in the pages (mostly because I can't actually swim in water). I love to hug them and squeeze them. I love the texture of the paper in between my fingers. So my writing haven is filled to the brim with as many as I can have.
My writing station is my home base. After a day at the local cafe (or where ever), I come home and write and compile in my sancuary.
