A number of years ago I remember reading an article by a writer who said she learned to not wear anything she would dare be caught dead in, should anyone see her. The ploy was to keep her inside and not go out or have any excuse to go outside, so that she would write. I figure if a person was always looking for excuses to get up from their chair and go outside, maybe go grocery shopping, instead of write, this would be a good idea. You'd have to throw on something nice in order to be seen in public.
I later recall seeing a post about what writers like to wear--called them "writing clothes". I don't recall what was posted, but I'm sure it was something in the line of a nice velour pantsuit of some sort. Like what I wear on my longer days of working in my office.
I tend to jump into sweats the moment I get home, anyway.
So, let's explore the idea in this blog post.
This looks comfy...
I've read that some people get dressed up. Men perhaps put on a suit coat in order to feel as though he's actually going to an office sort of job. But I don't think it applies to all men when they write. Do they get up, throw on the sweats and a T, go unshaven and crouch over the computer keys? Or do they shower and shave, and get into a pair of jeans and a button up shirt? Unless any guy writer out there wants to comment, and let us know what he wears when he writes, I haven't a clue.
So, I thought I would throw the question out to you:
What do you wear when you write?
