When I write, which admittedly isn’t much these days, it is always important to me to be in the perfect environment. Somewhere clean, quiet, I needed to have the perfect beverage and soundtrack. I always found I spent more time preparing to write then actually writing! I think its important to feel comfortable, but not to my extreme! I don’t think it helped that I put pressure on myself to get a certain amount completed.My advice would be if you have to make goals, make sure they’re realistic. If you have to force yourself to write,don’t expect Shakespeare.
