One of my college professors advised us to write whenever we feel like writing no matter what the subject, time, or purpose. Just write.
My moment usually starts after midnight – be it studying or writing. During high school, I even lit candles, sat by the window, and used a pencil – no ball point pens – to write nonsense. It was the time I had the house to myself – somehow – when my aunts were asleep. I’d have the quiet kitchen to myself. If it rained, it was a bonus. Of course, my half-frozen coffee (minimum of 1 liter) would be within reach.
Half a decade later, nothing much has changed. I still need the coffee, want to be alone, light candles, and use a pen/pencil. This time however, I need headphones to seclude myself from everything. I don’t have the luxury of being in my company always. A set of headphones is my constant companion.
