Wants Vs Needs

What is a necessity for you as a writer? What do you have to have? For me, it is some way to record my thoughts. Right now that means a computer of some type, although I’ve used pen and paper. And as strange as it sounds, some type of background noise. Music is my favorite–kids screaming is not.

What is a want? I want a Kindle or iPad but the fact that I don’t have either doesn’t keep me from writing.  🙂  I would like Dragon Speak but don’t want to take the time to program. I also want a nice beach house with The Donald as full time cabana boy. 😉  Yeah, that would give me plenty of inspiration.

  1. Love the picture! Can’t think of anything more relaxing than sitting on the beach, watching the tide roll in. Ahh.

    As far as what I HAVE to have as a writer…inspiration and deadlines. And not necessarily in that order. 😉 Guess it’s that old accountant in me. Who knows.

  2. I can scribble down thoughts, ideas, dialogue, anywhere on anything, but for serious productive work, I need a comfortable chair, a place to prop my feet so my creaky knees don’t interrupt, and something to look at. I don’t write to music — too distracting, though I don’t need silence, either — there’s always a fan going or, when I’m outside, chimes tinkling, planes flying over, train whistles drifting on the air, birds singing. And I need something to drink, and an occasional break for 2-3 games of mahjong or spider solitaire.
