comfoek we’re talking clothes. I tend to dress for comfort now. I wear jeans and t-shirts. Don’t get me wrong I wear dresses and skirts but not while writing. If I write on a Sunday, which doesn’t happen often because that’s a day spent with family in between two church services, I’ll change out of my church clothes before I write.
Most of my writing happens late at night. I wrote Love Overcomes while sitting cross-legged in bed with my blankets arranged around me like a nest. That got me in the habit of writing in comfort. The story was written in 30 days. I was so happy with it. It felt like being surrounded by comfort spurred my creativity.
I now write either from my dining room table or my bedroom. Even thought the dining room is the warmest room in the house I am still always cold. I often have arm warmers, a thin long sleeved shirt, a t-shirt, and a shawl or scarf.
However when I go to an event I dress up. For my first reading I bought a new black dress with bell sleeves, because I knew I would be talking with kids and suspected that I would be sitting low I wore leggings under it. Good thing I did too because I Sat on the steps while I read.
I recently started sewing so I am getting into making my own clothes which means I get to decide what fabric and style I can make. I have Christmas material set aside to make a skirt for next December. I get to be as creative with my clothes as I am with my writing so by this time next year I am certain that my wardrobe will change.
Do you dress for comfort or style?
