    oh i hear you on not being able to write w/ music. so distracting! total silence for me. also setting the mood when the feeling/inspiration is there is key. some days just won't happen and that's a-ok. xo

    I'm all about lyricless tunes for writing. (I love to write to Apocalyptica. Metallica by cello, there is no bad there.) And a bevvie, yes! Usually tea or coffee, but I have been known to rock out a scene with wine, gin or non-adult iced tea.

    I love this list. Nicely done. πŸ™‚

    I like to go somewhere else (aside from home) because I get too distracted when I'm at home.

    I set goals. I literally put it on my to-do list. "Finish chapter" "type up yesterday's writing". I find that by writing everything with pen and ink first, and then typing it up later… that I get the first revisions sort of "done", and then it enables me to write my book anywhere. So I am not distracted by housework or animals or anything.. I can go somewhere quiet and write and then worry about typing it later.

    I used not be able to write at home at all. I had to go somewhere/anywhere but towards the end of finishing my novel I was able to do it at home and get a lot of work done. It's so up and down!! Like you sometimes it flows and other times I can't think of a single word. I have found that reading definitely inspires me too. Good tips!

    I find that writing my ideas down as they come into a little notebook helps, as does making the time to write every day. However, I need that non distraction thing…social media just gets in the way all the time!

    I love to write with crappy tv on in the background, something I don't really focus on but keeps my brain abuzz πŸ™‚

    My writing comes in waves as well!! Good tips for inspiration! I must now go to the noisy Typer because I learned to type on one and I actually miss it!!!

    Love these tips! I get writer's block all the time even just writing blog posts. Having a nice atmosphere (especially with a hot drink) really helps. πŸ™‚

    Having a fun drink always helps me! I love sitting down with a nice cup of coffee or tea to write πŸ™‚ I absolutely LOVE that you told me about Coffitivity and Noisy Typer! I love having a little noise going on, but I can find having certain things like a tv show on low or music distracting at times. I am totally trying both of those out! Once I clicked on Coffitivity, I started smiling πŸ˜‰ So much fun! Thanks for the tips!

    I love the idea of noisy typewriter. That sounds amazing. For me, I just need to be shut out when I'm really writing. I can't stand any distractions.

    Oh my gosh thank you for sharing these wonderful tips! I love the coffee shop app/the typewriter app! I need coffee to feel inspired which seems like a bad addiction but a lot of writers needed a lot stronger forms of poison so I think I'm doing okay.

    I'm with you on setting your writing scene, candles and white noise always make for great writing.

    I'm the same with getting distracted by music when I write. I need silence. I like to go to the park sometimes to write. πŸ™‚ I like the setting the mood with scents tip!

    Love this, Chels! I always need to have music playing (and a little snack) when I write πŸ™‚

    This is so, so helpful to me. You mentioned a few new ones that I want to try! As for music, I usually listen to it before I write but then have to turn it off when I start writing (it does inspire though!) I'm so excited to check out Noisy Typer!

    When I need to sit down and write a blog post, I light my peppermint candle. The scent is just so strong and invigorating that my mind gets straight to work!

    Great tips! I also like vanilla candles and they actually help me to stay put and write on. As for music, it depends on what I am writing. If it's blog post or sth for school (days long gone) I like to have some music on. But if it's sth longer or more personal I rather do it in silence to focus better.
