Apart from the obvious friends – brain and inspiration and ability – there are many things that are, to me, always needed.
For your enjoyment I shall put it in list form 😛
- Notepad/notebook and pen/pencil – another obvious one!
- Your chosen reading material nearby (novel (fiction/non-fiction), textbook, etc.)
- Shoulder bag to carry around writing materials
- Some form of access to some of the things that inspire you
- Computer with internet connection
- Thesaurus – this one is particularly invaluable to me: http://thesaurus.com
- Oxford Dictionary – another key one: http://oxforddictionaries.com
Things like all those listed above are always with me or nearby where I can get them.
Do any of you have something to add to the list that helps you along the creative pathway? I would like to know 🙂
