What does this have with writing naked? Its the focus. I need to strip down to allow room to focus.
I remembered a discovery I made about myself in that frantic-scrub-everything night. I like to strip things down. Clutter effects me. As a writer, as a woman, as a lover, as a person.
I look at my coffee table cluttered with empty Chinese food boxes from last night, table tops and desks covered in pens, pencils, papers, bills, old art, books....far too much. I start looking at all the work I feel I need to get done and it keeps me from enjoyable work like writing.
When I worked at an office I had one of the cleanest desks, my boss came by on a regular basis and complimented how clean and organized things were, and thats something I need to carry over into my personal writing career. I need an area where I can be stripped free of all the outside world. An area to write naked and take focus again.
So this write naked tip is to strip down your work area, have a clean place to keep focus.
