16.04.08– Today at the the Bluestocking Lounge:

Writing Rituals.

I found a fascinating article at the BBC website about the writing rituals of several Irish authors.  It made me curious about how each of you prepare to write or make art.  Using these questions as a model, tell us a thing or two about your “rituals.”  To get you started, I’ve borrowed a couple of questions/directives from the article and stuck in a couple of my own:

Describe your writing or art-making space.

Describe your writing implement, device, equipment, or tools you use to create.

What is the oddest object in your creative space?

Do you listen to anything while you create?  If so, what?

Do you engage in any interesting habits, exercises, warm-ups or rituals before you settle down to create?

Who were the Bluestockings? A “bluestocking” was once a term of derision leveled at women who thought to improve themselves through informal intellectual and literary discussions.Each Friday, the SFC Bluestocking Society convenes at the Taverna to carry on that tradition. A topic will be posted and Taverna members are welcome to post comments related to the topic. (When you post your comments, please click the “Blue Stocking Society” category.)  For more information on the history of the Bluestockings, please feel free to peruse the minutes of their meetings.
