Do you have some thing you do or a thing you like to have with you, when you write? I realized that I tend to light a small soapstone alcohol lamp, when I write. It burns with a small blue flame until the stone gets hot and then I sort of use it as a heater. Even in the summer. By the time it gets warm, my metabolism has seemed to turn off and I need heat. I certainly write a lot with it un-lit, but if I happen to notice it, I fill it and get to work. Is it a superstition? A talisman? Do you have a ritual that goes along with your writing? A teacup you prefer to use on writing days? Do you only write, after you clean the house? What?
