Favorite Writing Environment

On Monday B.E. showed off her decluttered writing desk which got me to thinking about writing environments.

Some people think a clean desk is the best place to write. 

Some people (like these folks) think a messy desk is the secret to creativity.

Some people like to write in silence. Some people love background noise.

Some people like stillness. Some people like movement.

Some people need coffee. (Okay MOST of us need coffee, don't we?)

So basically, there's no "right" way to write. Just what's right for you.

I move around A LOT during my writing hours. It's not unusual for me to write in four or five different spots if I stay home.

If I go out, I prefer coffee shops over libraries.

Personally I'm not a big fan of silence.

If I write at home I usually listen music that matches my mood or what I'm trying to accomplish (usually the same song on an endless loop). Like the other day, when I was ruthlessly editing I listened to this:

If you can't get to a coffee shop, but miss the background noise, check out Coffitivity.

Tell me Killer Friends: What's YOUR favorite writing environment?

Now, see, there's a perfect example of writers having different needs. I could never write with music on a loop. I need it all to be the same style, but different songs. Heck, when the same song comes up twice in one writing session, I'm all like 'oh man, I just heard that'.

I also don't think I could write anywhere else but home. Mind you, I haven't tried, but I know me. I'd get all distracted watching other people at a coffeeshop, or watching nature at a park, or browsing books at B&N. I'm better off here in my cave.

Yep, we're all different, but whatever works to get the words out. ;o)
