Creativity/Writing Environment 1 -- Lighting

I have a seminar that I call "Write To Survive, Survive to Write, Practical tips to hanging in there before you're published." Some of these tips will be taken from that seminar.

Check your lighting in your creative space, is it right for you? For a long time I wrote in the evenings and nights, but now even the thought of looking at a bright screen in the dark makes my eyes ache. I have an overhead light in my office, a full-spectrum desk lamp, and in the winter the sun comes in most of the day. I very rarely write with the overhead light on, that's to look at the bookshelves or EDIT or read research material.

Changing the light in your space can signal your subconscious that it's time to be creative. Turn a special light on. Light a candle.

May you enjoy all the light around you today.

Beauty, unaccompanied by virtue, is as a flower without perfume.
