Top Four Ways to Get Through NaNoWriMo: #3 Inspiration/Vices
I'm not condoning any illicit behavior here. But if something motivates you, inspires you to write, then by all means, have at it.
I have to start my day out with coffee. I cannot function without it. It's like the synapses in my brain can't find each other without caffeine leading their way.
Whatever you need music, smokes (I do not condone smoking, but you know, some people need that), sunshine, photographs to remind you why you are doing what you're doing. Whatever it takes.
If I'm writing at night (which is rare) I like to have a glass of wine next to me. Red. Only one. More than one and the writing gets all wonky.
I know it's short, but to the point. Do what makes you write.
My Dad. He's awesome.
