I only ask this question to see if other writers have an item or some cue they use to "get in the mood" as it were. I myself have a pipe that reminds me of Sherlock Holmes. It sits on my desk and occasionally dangles from between my teeth. I do not even smoke. The pipe is a visual cue that I am here to write. Strange, I know.
I have never before read one of your hubs and am a little taken aback by your decidedly hostile answer to this question. I did not ask for your super, secret squirrel method of churning out prize winning writing so that I might emulate your greatness. Please forgive the thinly veiled attempt to “steal” your idea of the perfect writing cue, although I fail see how it might confuse me.
I did hop on over to your page to see what I was obviously missing. I must admit that I did not leave my “two sense” since that would leave me with only three, and I could not for the life of me decide which two to give up. My apologies.
Thank you all for your exchange of ideas.
