NaNoWriMo: Day 3

It’s Day 3 of NaNoWriMo and I’ve taken time out from writing (fine, I’m procrastinating, but you’re procrastinating by reading this!) to give you an update on my work in progress.

I don’t know about you, but I need a few things in order to focus on my writing. Sometimes, when I’m in a particularly procrastinatory (not a word, but it should be) mood, I’ll add more stuff to the list until I deem myself “unfit for writing” and lay on the couch swearing that tomorrow will be different.

Things I need in order to write:

1. Snacks – that reminds me, I’m hungry! I’ll be right back.

(Twenty minutes later.)

2. A clean kitchen. Strange, but true.

3. A recently walked dog. He’s very demanding.

4. Comfortable clothes, chair, etc. Ideally, I would have someone massage my shoulders while I write. It’s hard work!

5. My notebook of, well, notes next to me. This way I can doodle jot down key ideas while typing on my computer.

I don’t know what you absolutely need in order to have an optimal writing environment, but I hope you’ve managed to write in addition to doing all those very important things. 🙂

WIP: 2376

Send me an email, link, carrier pigeon to let me know how you’re faring too! Happy writing!

  1. That list looks vey smiliar to mine, apart from I need absolute silence. I’ve found that even a radio or TV on can distract me!
    Good luck with it this month 🙂
