Others have a cigarette, or a cup of coffee, or keep a journal about it.
What's your habit?
I'm talking about writing habits...due to coming across an article on daily routines of famous writers. Ray Bradbury, Jack Kerouac, Joan Didion, William Gibson and others are covered in this article. The habits they have range from having a drink, or lighting a candle, to writing in a notebook every day. There are some great insights into the minds, habits, and personalities of some of the great writers. One even says he doesn't schedule the writing, the writing schedules him. Another talks about what I sometimes consider an obstacle: "internet ablutions."
I know a young writer who goes to a cafe to write. Others write before work, or after the rest of the world goes to sleep. I don't have any one habit, myself, but my favorite is mocha coffee in the morning, or music late at night.
Anyone else have habits? Do they help? What's the oddest habit you know of?
