In my own experience, the atmosphere must be perfect if I hope to get any writing done. The corner lamp is the only light source, and my Brain Crain Pandora station is playing. Also, for some bizarre reason, it has to be at night (no idea why). Anyway, I know I can't be the only one with these specific intricacies. Fellow writers, how do you set the mood? Candles? Toto? Heavy metal? Bubble bath? Feel free to share (no one will make fun... promise).
I actually moved my desk to the bedroom so that I could sit by the window looking at the rooftops and the ocean in the background. I need to have scenery in order to write. I also do better when I'm alone in the house. Early mornings are better for me, but I can do night, too.
i can't set a mood...somehow i get inspired...don't ask...cuz i don't know... mind you i've only written about 20 hubs i think...i think the time of day doesn't matter either...it's my mind that's in charge and i write when it feels like it has sumthin' to say....argh...i've no control over it.......soooooooooo
I go wherever people are not and just start thinking of ideas. For me this involves a lot of pacing back and forth whilst talking to myself. Honestly I think that when I am trying to come up with things to write I must look completely insane.As soon as I have an idea I'm happy with I just get stuck into it, often getting up to pace some more at random points.
Sometimes though I'm struck with inspiration out of nowhere. At those times I usually just find something to write it down on then continue going about my day as normal.

So, evidently this was booted off the questions, and thus I repeat it here: does anyone else get up in the middle of the night to write?
