Do you need complete space, peace and quiet when you write? Or can you write ‘on the hop’?
Me? I find I do a bit of both. I manage to have bite-size bits of conversations (usually with others but sometimes with myself!) while I’m jotting my notes and, so long as I edit, it seems to work okay. This is probably because the foundations are there in the first place.
It’s the same when I’m brainstorming and an idea naturally develops into something bigger. You know, like when you write a whole piece in one sitting and you hadn’t intended to?
I find that I can still multi-task. In actual fact, I much prefer to multi-task because I find it helps the creative process. It seems to spur me on, helps me to mull things over and gets me to the finished piece.
So, to go back to the question at the beginning, how about you? Do you need complete space, peace and quiet when you write? Or can you write on the hop?
