“If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack at an hour when it isn’t expecting it.
I think this is a handy little tool to make twists and turns and come up with something unique. Even if one doesn’t keep it in the end, it’s a cool idea to jazz up your routine and write differently, whether playing unusual music or taking your laptop outside, sometimes these are the things that will unearth that creative spark. In fact, I’m going to need to try this soon.
As a nighttime writer, due to my night job that I have to keep, there are still ways to attack, even if I’m sitting on the same sofa, in front of the same storage trunk. I could open the curtains a bit and look out at the night sky and the nighttime neighborhood or I could adjust the lighting, change the music station, turn on albums and the like
I tend to be a creature of habit and limit my musical options to three things, but there are even more ways to change an environment in order to get the night turned around. Even one as set in their ways as myself, still has options for change and variety.
