I'm one of those authors who does most of their writing at night. I guess you would say I'm a total night owl. I find that I'm most creative during the night and honestly it's just more peaceful to me. The only time I change that up is during #NaNoWriMo, then I'm writing all day and part of the night.
For me to actually sit down and write I have to have a clean writing space. My desk is my favorite place to write.
Like I said above I'm a huge nighttime writer. So I usually write from 8 P.M. till around Midnight or sometimes even later, depending on if the story is still flowing.
Like I said in my about me, I'm a huge planner and my plotting notebook/planner is a must for me. It has to be close by while I write. It's chock-full of all my plot/story notes and outlines.
Another thing I have to have is music while I write. I have a playlist created for each and every book I write. So while I'm writing that playlist is playing in the background.
I've only had this Mac for a few months now and I can't be any happier with it. I love it!! A few months back my PC crashed on me but luckily for me, I had my manuscripts backed up!
Like I already said, I'm an avid reader and books are just something that makes me happy. I have recently started reading some writing craft books and I'm really starting to enjoy those as well.
Nothing beats pen and paper. Especially if you're out and about and don't have anything else. I'm always jotting down ideas on post-it notes and shoving them into my plotting notebook.
As far as I'm concered, the entire reason for becoming a writer is not having to get up in the morning.
