I’d like to use this morning’s article to ask you, fellow writers and readers, to share the tips, techniques and aids that help you write. For example, I know many of us (Sarah, Kate, Dorothy and I) have feline assistants, as Breaking Cat News so aptly portrayed earlier this week (click the image below to be taken to a full-size version at the comic’s Web site).
I’ve set up my work area in what was once a small back porch of the house, which a previous owner enclosed (very badly – we did a better job when we moved in.) Storage cupboards line one wall, and my desk and computer are against another. It works for me. Others have larger office spaces, some lined with bookshelves. What about you?
As for work habits, do you write at set times, or as and when you can make time in your busy schedule? I have a very weird sleep pattern, thanks to pain from a back and nerve injury almost two decades ago. I can’t usually sleep more than a few hours at a time without pain waking me, so I do a lot of writing in the small hours of the morning. I don’t recommend it, but if that’s what you’ve got, use it! How about you?
Let’s help each other work from home by telling each other how we do it.
