Q is for Quietness. I need a certain quietness around me when I am writing. I often wonder how a few writers can write in coffee-shops or in some public place. If there is any kind of noise I am easily distracted. Actually even my mind has to be quiet. I can never write with an agitated mind or if someone or something is troubling me.
One of my all- time favourite writer says that when he writes he needs a quiet atmosphere. He says that he sits on his bed and writes. If the bed sheet has a print he is distracted and is unable to write. When he is writing, the bed sheets have to be plain white. This is taking the sense of quietness a bit too far.
Even I write on my bed and I am okay with a printed bed sheet. It’s the voices (conversation) that distract me.
Are you very particular about having a feeling of quietness when you sit down to write?
