Besides, what I want to know is where people find they can best write. For instance, most of my masterpieces are written in cafes or on the toilet. I don't seem to be able to conjure anything up in our parlour; even less so on the computer. I
Where do you write?

Firstly JC do you take a pen and paper into the toilet with you?

Secondly, Bob Dylan allegedly wrote Mr Tambourine Man on a café napkin so no bad thing there!

I have a nicely woven covered moleskin notebook that goes everywhere with me (yes, sometimes into the toilet too) and the slightest idea gets written down. Sometimes just a word!

It then gets transferred to one of ten "draft" files to be worked over and over, to eventually see the light of day on WOL or my blog.

There you have it, anyone else for tennis.

I'd caution against working drafts "over and over", Graham. We haven't got long to go.

Hi John,

I write most of my great works while commuting. I use my mobile's notepad document. As I make so many revisions and changes I find it's an easier way to edit than pen and paper. Also, this way, fewer trees are murdered for my silly scribbles.

I tend to listen to music on headphones as it helps me write. Sometimes sounds/music trigger images that in turn trigger ideas for poems.

I have also written some fabulous poems while dreaming, only to wake up and forget them. Thank goodness they are all works of genius..😂

I write wherever, but mainly laying in bed . I have to be high though. on whatever. pills mainly, but crystal works best. they arrest me alot , cuz they aint got what i got.... priors.

haha . Honesty is the best policy right? hope so...

see the drugs i think cause me to get possessed by poets from the past. the ones dead and gone. i speak to poe alot. some reason now he's wearing a leather thong... to each his own... the raven changed my life... hard to explain i think its magic.

The most high I have ever been when I've written, Max, was at 30,000 feet on a Ryan air flight back from Majorca.

I write while off my face on heroin. Usually a unicorn tells me what to write.
