Writer Survival

Captain's Log, Stardate 10.30.2007

My water fountain has been sent to Goodwill because it used a stinkin’ pair of AA batteries every TWO DAYS! Now I am on the hunt for another one, about the same size but one that I can plug in.

My tranquility corner was looking bare, so I arranged three things I absolutely need in order to get the creative juices flowing and write:

The candle thing is for my aromatherapy. Nothing like a whiff of lavendar to signal writing mode for my right brain.

The M&Ms are dark chocolate, folks. Yummy!

The knitting is usually something easy—you knitters will notice it’s simple stockinette stitch—so that I can knit and allow my right brain to wander and be inspired. Something about the mindless tactile stimulation helps me write better.

How about you? Want to play? Take a pic of three things you need for writing and post a link to your blog in the comments below!


  1. I'd love to take some photos, but I need new batteries for my camera. Just my luck! It died on me Sunday at my father-in-law's birthday party.

  2. I love that you have a special corner for your inspiration...great triggers for getting your mind in gear. Will have to think about my triggers and try to get some photos taken.
