Last week I bought a totally rad bike:
Isn't it cute?! You cant see the white bubbles painted all over it in this picture, but they are so there. It has a rhinestone encrusted cup holder for my smoothies, a heart shaped bell to warn the old ladies crossing the street I'm coming, a fat seat for my fat bottom, a large white basket for my fresh baguettes ;). and deck on the back in case I need to... move furniture or something (I don't actually know what I would use that for). Oh yeah, and white wall tires. Super cool if you didn't know.
I got it so that I could ride to Starbucks every morning and get some exercise before I sit my butt down on a plush couch for two hours and write. You know, some blood pumping to get the brain working. In essence I bought this bike for my writing. A healthier, more active style of writing. Ahem, at least that's what I told my husband when I bought it. But it is totally helping.
So that is my new schedule. 6 am, throw on some flip-flops and sunglasses, throw laptop in cute basket, ride up a considerably tall hill, and write until I have to be home around 8 to start the day (flying down that considerably tall hill is so fun).
What is your writing schedule like? Do you do any quirky things before writing to get you in the mood? Light candles, listen to Enya? ;)
