What circumstances seem to give you, your most productive writing sessions? Productive as in you wrote a section of a work, and you actually like it, and you can feel it moved your project forward. Circumstances as in, where were you perched. This question is not what you imagine your best writing situation to be, but out of your own experience, its the surroundings that manifested your best writing, outside of what you always felt as a comfort zone. For example, if you asked me what i think is my best environment for writing, i'd say quiet, calm and in the evening. But when I get my best work done, I'm in the most uncomfortable places, like sitting in the middle of the family room, late afternoon, while someone else has the news blaring, or sitting in a cafe with annoying people all around me, yapping on phones, etc. Maybe its the surrounding annoyances that trigger moods, I dunno. But what I do know is that what my mind thinks is a good situation for writing, is obviously incongruent to the truth. So how about you?
