The awesome co-hosts for this month are; Sandra Hoover, Mark Koopmans, Doreen McGettigan, Megan Morgan, and Melodie Campbell!
I’ve been experimenting with my writing habits, I figure it’s good to mix things up a bit and not get too set in my ways.
So first off; a change of scenery. I usually write at my desk in the spare room in between the towel cupboard and the exercise bike. But the weather’s getting a bit colder and the dust on the bike is starting to make me sneeze ;). So sometimes I shift downstairs and light the woodburner. I can multi-task that way by drying the washing and keeping the kitten company. Although as she keeps attacking my pen and walking across my keyboard that may not be such a good thing!
Pens and keyboards; that leads me to my next change. I like to write longhand when I start a story. That flow of brain to fingers to page works for me, but I decided to give brain to keyboard a go. It was interesting because I still managed to produce something worthwhile although the process was very different. (Fewer conversations with myself). I think I’ll continue to experiment and see how it goes.
The next thing to try will be pantzing instead of planning. But I might have to prepare myself for that!
Do you prefer to stick to one method or swap around? Do you get different results?
