I don’t know if it is OCD, but I like it when things are immaculate and ordered. There is a satisfaction in having a place for everything, and everything living in its assigned spot. A clean house, sparkling windows, freshly folded towels, spotless floors, and warm homemade cookies are my idea of a comfortable abode.
My writing rituals are no less rigorous. I set specific, time-sensitive writing goals, schedule a time to write and analyze my progress. I demand high standards. Expecting perfection, my results are often less than gratifying, and yet, better than I hoped. A clutter-free desk and a blank document allow my mind to concentrate on writing without distraction.
What is your perfect writing environment?
Keep on writing.
