Do you prefer silence or music? If the latter, what kind and volume? If the former, what steps do you take to eliminate background noise? I generally can't listen to music while I write; however, I don't have to have complete silence. The TV is usually always on at my house just for background noise. Do you have a favorite chair that you have to be sitting in to get anything written? I don't have a laptop, only a desktop, so I'm pretty limited in that! I have to use my desk with my comfy office chair. If I'm trying to finish a fic on deadline, I will sometimes sneak my flashdrive into work and use my work computer to write. Do you like to sit at a desk inside, take your laptop out into your backyard or to a local park, even go to the library to write? Again, limited here, as I don't have a laptop. Do you prefer to sit in one position for the entire writing session or change positions often, or do you need the freedom and space to get up and act out scenes before writing them? I usually sit in one position. I don't get up to act scenes out, but I do find myself getting restless and having to get up and walk around a bit sometimes. How much distraction (e.g. someone interrupting you) can you handle before the writing session is ruined? Distraction is not as much of an issue as is losing the muse! I have to be in a certain frame of mind to be able to write, and if I'm not there, it ain't happening (unfortunately).
