Writers may be the most particular people I’ve ever met.
Some people work when they must. I’ve seen people skip two nights of sleep to get their hours in. They’re not particular about the circumstances at all.
But creative fields are different. I know some writers who can only write drunk or high. Some must have their chores done first. Some need the quiet surrounding them. Some need blaring music. Outside. Inside. Some have to write on a laptop at a desk. Some can’t even write with a laptop. Some write in tight spaces or with their back against a wall. Some write in closets.
It’s an interesting act you don’t see anywhere else. I never see a Target worker needing everything quiet to work or a doctor asking to only work without a laptop. The creative field has made interesting people that work in strange ways. And if one thing of their routine is off: Nope. Can’t write anymore.
My writing style is strange, even to me. I write after everyone has gone to sleep because I prefer to write in silence. After dinner is the best time for me if not. I can write with music sometimes, but it has to be music that isn’t new or too emotional to me. I prefer my back against a wall and tight spaces.
It’s cool how circumstances must fit together to create something never seen before. Don’t you agree?
