    I like to write with some light, I suppose. I used to work in the dark, but it hurt my eyes too much ><; I usually type unless I have to absolutely write it down in a notebook because I am terribly slow at writing @_@ When I do get the chance to write on my laptop or in a notebook, I go to places where I can draw inspiration for my setting, or listen to music without words that inspire the mood. I can't listen to music with words or it distracts me @w@

    w00t, first post on PC. Hopefully I'll become a regular here and not just Serebii :3

      Chesh! *hugs* Welcome to PC!

      XD I used to read in the car at night, using the occasional lamp post speeding by to read. As you'd expect, it didn't do wonders for my eyes. XD

        Where do you have to be when writing your fics?
        I don't have to be any certain place when writing really, anywhere is fine.

        What about sound in the background?
        Nothing, I don't like sound when I'm writing.

        Do you write on the computer or on paper?

        I write my beganings on paper, the rest on the computer using voice recognition software.
        I can type but I can't spell worth anything so the software is like a breath of fresh air...

          I like to type out my work--it's quicker that way and easier to edit.

          in terms of music, I like to have it on while I'm working, because I can visualize what is happening as the music plays (if it's an instrumental) or visualize who's singing it (if it has vocals)

          As for what's usually on, it can be anything from 80's/90's pop (like I have on right now), anime and game music (particularly music from Dance Dance Revolution), some of my cartoon OSTs (usually the OST from the 80's cartoon "Jem", if I'm writing "Kochou and the Beautiflies"), to a Celtic number.

          I have been inspired by music--a 50's rock song inspired a humorous scene in one of my early fics. (PM me if you wanna know the full story)

            I just write my fanfics in bed..watching Tv, doesnt matter.With my electronic keyboard there are no worries. I usually get ideas when im sleeping and the next morning i make sure to get down small notes..it helps. Listening to music only helps if im sleeping because thats how i grow ideas..rock usually helps a lot. I try to type almost every day, but sometimes ideas just dont come..

            Lost memory- Will he do it?
