Preptober Day 8

Writing Rituals

Ritual is often just another term for habits. I have plenty of habits both bad and good but when it comes to my writing I can’t really put my finger on anything specific. Most days I’m lucky to get a few moments here and there to sit in silence at the computer. I hate silence by the way. I much prefer to have music. Aha! I’ve found one ritual. I must have my trusty playlist ready to lull me into the perfect writing mood. When I do get ample time to prep for a writing session I usually know I’m going to be there for as long as I possibly can. I don’t want to waste precious time on anything other than a quick restroom trip so I prep my desk. Tea, water, snacking chocolate, and maybe a small bowl of chips. For all those computer people cringing about crumbs and oily keys, RELAX! I have several silicone keyboard covers to keep my laptop in keyboard in perfect working order. Of course, having my laptop up and running and a clutter-free workspace is a must as well. I guess I do have some pretty extensive writing rituals.
