What struck me in Lucia Cox's blog is how much creativity is a question of comfort: you need a nice seat and warm clothes (or light ones in summer). I avoid alcohol in general, except in very moderate quantities. Writing for me involves tea to stay awake during daytime and rooibos in the evening. I do often have a movie, a TV series (guess which one) or music in the background. Music is often Mozart or some old rock, or some movie soundtrack. I end up not watching/listening, but it gives some good vibes. I think the creative process should involve chocolates, or cakes, or chocolate cakes, for a boost of energy and endorphin. Something I probably need to work on.

I learned how to type on a heavy old typewriter like that. Seems like a million years ago now.
I remember using a typewriter back in the early 90s, I never thought I could type without learning. The computer changed our lives dramatically.
oh yes, chocolates and a coffee too with foamed milk and choc. shavings always makes things better.
but I do like tea too. something warm and comforting.
I can only write with very specific pens and for creative writing I'm more at ease with a pen and paper than a computer.
