Every writer or artist needs a good area to work.
Here is one of my workstations:
Here I can draw, write, compose music, edit films, you name it. However, 70% of the time when I’m writing, I’m usually out of the house. Living with loud parents can sometimes become very distracting.
One of the most important aspects of writing is your work area. You need a space where you can forget about the world, or shut it out for a few hours. Sometimes shutting out the world, can even mean a trip to a busy food court, or a coffee shop. I can write just fine with strangers passing by, but for some reason I can’t write when I’m around people I know. It’s freaking impossible.
You need to find a space, or create a space that’s just for you. I do this both physically and mentally. Call it your ‘happy place’ or whatever, but sitting down, closing my eyes, and getting into that ‘place’ is one of the best ways to start a writing session.
So stop what you’re doing, and create a work area for yourself. You can brandish it with personal items, or things that are important to you. Make it comfortable, because you and that spot are going to be together for a long time…
