Every writer has their own way of getting into their writing mood. Some might need a drink. Some may need to read first. Others might just have to get right after it. Here are five ways I get ready to write my erotica.
01. In The Right Mood
This one obviously only applies to when I’m writing sex. But I have to be turned on in order to write about sex. If I’m not it just comes out as a big mess and I’ll have to start all over.
02. Food & Drink
I need something caffeinated. Be it coffee, an energy drink or gfuel and some water in order to write. And I need to have a snack or meal handy or have just eaten. I want and need my brain free of every distraction.
03. Quiet & Music
I need it to be quiet but I also need my music going. I find that if I can’t write in a totally quiet environment that music drowning out other noises helps.
Sometimes, I need to have a specific playlist going for whatever I’m writing. Other times i listen to random songs and let those guide my writing.
I need to be wearing comfortable clothes and have my hair up. “Comfortable clothes” a lot of times means something sexy to help fuel my writing.
05. At Least One Hour
I need at least one good hour to churn out some good, useable work. The first twenty minutes are usually just trying to get into my flow. I need another 40 minutes – AT LEAST – of good writing time to feel completed.
What kinds of things do you need or do in order to write your best work?
P.S. I know this one is a little boring. I promise I have some good things coming! I’ve been working on them quite a bit lately. (Hence the late and semi-boring post.) But at least you learned something about me. 😘
