Writing is a deeply personal process. It taps into a part of us that we may not even fully understand. The mind of a creative person is a very complicated thing.
The process of getting our ideas onto the page can be a sensitive one. We may learn we get our best ideas in the shower. Or while out for a walk. Or while staring out at the water.
A writer might find the ideas flow more freely while seated at a desk. Or reclining on the sofa. Or while perched on the roof of a doghouse.
Some writers have to have a cup of coffee before sitting down to write. Some have a glass of wine or something even stronger. Some of us boost our serotonin with a hefty dose of this:
Some can only write with pen and paper. Some prefer an old-school typewriter. Most of us, however, write on a laptop or desktop computer.
Personally, I recently found that changing my font while writing fiction was oddly inspiring. It felt more creative. Try it sometime!
Whatever your process, it's probably drastically different from how people picture it.
