What writing habits and rituals do you have?
Do you write in the same place? Do you write at the same time each day? Do you have a home office? Are you working on several projects at once or do you finish them one at a time?
None that I know of-I may but not realize it. I type everything, can work anywhere and write when I want to.
I vary mine from time to time. Sometimes I feel like I have to read first and then write. If I'm on vacation and I've got my laptop it usually puts me into the mood to start a project.
I like to write with music playing or the tv on. I sometimes switch up the place in which I write. I will visit a library just to be out of the house. I also enjoy going to the park to be among nature.
I have several things I am working on, and currently one at a time is how it's completed.
I write mostly at nights when all is quiet. I am lucky enough to have a study/library.I used to write longhand in notebooks when I was little ( yeah I have been writing all my life!) and of course now I use my PC. My new rituals are social networking/web browsing in between writing spells for a break. I step out of my house ( it overlooks farmland) and look up at the sky ( unpolluted by citylights) and watch the moon and the stars for inspiration. I always have several projects on the go - I have a story, couple of articles and a textbook on the go now!
Well I work a full-time salaried job and only get one day off a week so I write every evening... and try to publish 1 to 2 hubs a week. Sometimes less, sometimes more. I'd love to publish more but I work so much it's impossible. I love writing so it's an enjoyment for me.
I take pen and paper with me whereever i go. I have to take alot of paper because I write something, edit it, rewrite it, re-edit it, rewrite the re-editted version and so forth. I like to listen to music but the volume has to be at the bare minimum or I end up drifting off and losing myself in the song. I just bought a laptop on kijiji so that I can type anywhere I want to, which is great. It will save on paper and pen usage. I have several projects going at the same time. Whatever I am working on, depends on what my mood is like at that time
as funny and stupid as this may sound, I find that my phone can be the best tool I have as a writer simply due to the fact that you can save drafts of messages. I was in a poetry class a few years back and i wrote an entire poem on my phone while I was going for a walk. Since then, I've used the "Drafts" box of my text messaging as a place to store ideas, images, or inspirations that I have when I'm not near my laptop or notebook.
I also talk to myself when I'm brainstorming. I have to be alone or it just doesn't work as well. I'll either pace around my living room or walk around the block and just talk through any and all ideas that are bouncing around in my head. It really helps me pick out the dumb or dead end ideas and occasionally results in new, better ideas that I wouldn't have been able to think of if I hadn't talked things through out loud.

Okay, when I get on my kicks I write anywhere from 4 to 10 poems a day, maybe more. This doesn't mean that all of them make the cut, or don't go through some heavy revisions. I'm just interested in other...
