   Healthy Environment

  There's no such thing as a universal ideal creative space. Some peope are able to create anywhere, anytime; whereas other folks are most productive in a specific environment.

Whether you work best in a cozy café, a quiet corner in the library, under a beach umbrella, or up in a tree house, once you discover the location that gets your creative juices flowing, schedule yourself to visit that place on a regular basis. 

For some folk: A CLEAN DESK=A CLEAN MIND 

If you're a traditionalist who prefers working at a desk, make sure it's a clean, well-lit desk, free of clutter, notes, and visual distractions. For many people, the desk is a central dumping area for homework, magazines, junk mail, love notes, and candy wrappers, but as a writer, you've got to commit to keeping your desk your creative sanctuary.  Make sure your mess is writing stuff. If you invest several minutes a day to organizing your desk, you'll avoid the drudgery of sifting through a mountain of accumulation right when an "a-ha!" literary mood strikes. In essence, by creating a non essential free, clutter-free working environment, you're providing yourself with a clean slate for ideas to flow. Once you're at your clean desk, close the door, and post a sign that says, "Don't bother me! I'm working." 

GET OFF THE INTERNET 

Sure, the Internet is a great research tool and network center, but in order to completely focus, you've got to turn a blind eye to instant messaging, e-mail, viral videos, and other electronic distractions, like cell phone, TV, radio, or screaming kids. This is easier said than done, but just think about how much time you lose when you just "quickly check" your e-mail or a Facebook thread.    

 WRITE WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC? 

Music with lyrics isn't for everyone. Music can help me sometimes, but usually a person gets distracted and starts singing along, start tapping fingers or pencil,  or want to go look up the lyrics or more info on the artist.    Though there's no "one-size-fits-all" concentration music to help creativity, studies have shown that classical music helps with elevating emotional spirits and soothing the mind. There's still debate on whether classical and instrumental music helps with concentration, so experiment with different types of music and no music at all to see what helps you concentrate.
