I Need It Hot And Steamy

It’s just something about that hot water and steamy shower-box that gets my creative juices flowing.

Let me explain: Over at blog chicks we have been having a discussion about how many drafts people have on the go and how many edits are done of posts.

My draft folder is always completely empty as I am a sit down, write and publish type of girl.
However, that isn’t to say I don’t do draft copies of my posts, I do. Not on my keyboard however, but in the shower.

Often that 10 minutes or so, when I’m in a pleasantly different head-space, is the only time-slot I have allocated for the day where I do not have to think of my wee angels and their needs. Thus it provides the perfect opportunity to draft my next ramble (in my head). To this end, by the time I have finished in the shower I have the nuts and bolts of my next post ready. Then it’s just a matter of putting pen to paper – or finger to keyboard – as the case may be.

As well as the shower and the nights I suffer from Insomnia (which is often when I do my best thinking), I also have several notebooks dotted around the house so I can scribble down my random musings before they infiltrate my brain entirely.

So, my dears (yuck, that sounds so condescending).

So, my lovelies (No, way too mushy!)

So, my fellow writers and readers, I now turn the Soapbox over to you: Where do you do your best thinking?
