One more ‘gin we’re joining in with the Friday Fives fun from Pam’s group blog Paper Hangover.
We are so ADHD, we absolutely have to have something else to grab on to or listen to while writing and revising. With that being said, here are our top five must haves!!!
1.) Music Part I: When revising, we like to listen to low moody music. A great example: The Inception soundtrack, or most songs by Incubus or 30 Seconds to Mars.
2.) Music Part II: Creating playlists based on our character(s). For The Blues, a lot of heavy, loud music (SlipKnot, Korn, The Used) was put on Blake’s playlist. For Project J, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson provided some of the soundtrack of Jonah’s life.
3.) Lubrication: Get your minds out of the gutter! We both happen to have cosmetic type materials that we need at our desks. For Pam it’s lotion, for me ChapStick. Must. Haves.
4.) Candy: Preferably anything gummy–however, chocolate, Lemon Heads, Nerds and SweetTarts will suffice!
5.) Finally, a notebook: Not just any notebook either. Cute little white notebooks decorated with colorful polka dots. This was given to us when we were in England by our sistah from another mistah, Racquel. We keep these notebooks with us to jot down new ideas, and to write things we need to remember while revising.
There you have it, our five must haves while writing/revising…what about you?
