How do you set the mood when you\'re writing?

We all know that making a sensible writing is not in any way a walk in the park. At most times, you have to get the most out of the motivation within you to start writing your article. I myself can't make a good start whenever I write if my mind is not into it. I have to look for ways that will ignite my appetite to set on writing. For example, I browse my Facebook account to find good reads there. The moment I feel like I got enough of awesome compositions, then I will start off writing my own ship.

What bout you? How do you make the situation compliment with your writing voyage?

This is one area that am poor at. Actually I keep on diving in the ocean in the hope of catching a fish. At times am lucky and catch one. That is how I set up my mood in my writing career.

I attend first to the needs of my family. My husband works as a preacher and my 2 daughters go to school. I would help them out first before I write.

Our minds needs to have the great freedom to think well. We could not write what we have not thought of. Our mind is where the battle is.

Yes that is exactly true we need to have a peace of mind in order for us to write well, our mind is our main asset because it is where some creativity in writing comes and we should be give much importance about it otherwise it is very hard for our mind to focus and concentrates in things that we we like to do.

Yes it is true and it is one of the most common things that I do whenever I feel tired at some time because we need to give time for our mind and body to relax for us to keep working after having some rest. We ate not a robot that can work 24 hours a day without having a break since we are only humans that feel some tiredness and change on our moods every now and then.

Free yourself of any thing before writing helps write to feel relax and writing with that mode help bring more ideas to the mind.

That's one thing that any writer should always think about and be conscious with. If you want to have a smooth sailing process while writing your contents, it's best to do first the things that might get in the way of your focus (not distractions actually as they are important), so that you won't need to attend them in between.

Well, to an extent that is not a good way to improve as a writer. I would suggest that you can always set out plans and see how you can make use of that to get better as a result since for you to make it as writer, you need to have some ideas locked up ready to share.

Yes, it really is not easy to set the mood when you're writing. It is even hard to start especially if your mind is preoccupied with a lot of tasks that you should also do. Well, I must say that it's so hard for me to get the motivation in one go. But, usually, when I want to start writing, I sit on a comfortable chair and stare blankly outside the window and let my thoughts be drifted away. I don't know, but it helps me relax and makes my mind ready to think and work for writing after doing that.

Well, when I see the bills due for payment, I start writing! Seriously, I'm not a moody writer and it doesn't take much to get me to start writing. In the first place, I don't claim or accept writing assignments when I'm not in the mood to write. I can understand having mental blocks but if you have a long list of things to do, you just got to start working instead of looking for excuses not to start working.

I just look for a comfortable place (usually my bed) and start pounding on the keyboards for my initial outline. Then I start browsing for existing content. In some cases, the clients themselves provide the outline and I simply provide the content.

Well, I don't need to create the atmosphere or change my mood if I have to start my writing. However, I am not able to concentrate on my writing if there is a lot of disturbance around me. Also if my mind is not calm and I am feeling agitated due to some problem then I prefer to stop my work for some time at that moment. I take a break and try to calm down and then I resume my work again.

For me, a big part of it comes to having an organized work area. If my desk is messy or disorganized, I find it difficult to actually get into that writing headspace.

Often when I just remove that clutter, it's like my brain also gets freed up - and ready to write!

It really amazes me how every writer is different. You may not be able to start writing unless you organize the things around you. Others may also prefer a messy room.

I think for me to have a good mood in writings we need to be a positive thinker and be calm as much as possible so that we can really focus well on our writings. We need to have a better sleep so that we can stay motivated to write some great articles on our own. It is very hard to focus if we feel sleepy since we will just end up unproductive for the day.

Focus is all that is needed. Sleep robs us of our focus. We then remain in some dark corner. No motivation at all.

I honestly do not know. Possibly with me the mood is set by the words themselves streaming in my head rather than anything external. For example, I am in bed having spent a fair amount of day at the hospital, thankfully learning things are better. The house is untidy, there is a lot left undone while I have been out of action, but if I start to think of a leaf and then of an autumn path the watery sunlight begins to trickle through the branches and the crackle and crush beneath my feet gets louder while the wind in my face grows stronger as I march towards where Johnny stands, I am angrier with every step I take. Yea...for me the mood is not external, it lives in my head and finds me. To calm mysef down I will go to silver backed seashores and search for shining shells while the foam bubbles and surges around my bare feet. Johny is watching, laughing, at a distance. No idea who this Johnny chap is but here I am with cat beside me and have found him in two paragraphs from an unseemly unmade bed.

Getting into the mood for writing is not easy because it is on a case to case basis. When I feel tired physically, I have to rest in my bedroom while watching tv. When I feel mentally or emotionally tired, I have to get out of the house like going to the mall or shopping. But oftentimes I tend to my dogs to give me inspiration to write because my dogs are my stress relievers. Combing or bushing their coat gives me pleasure and with a relaxed mind I get in the mood to write.

I often find that I'm the same - if I'm mentally drained or stressed it's really hard to get into the mood to write, no matter how good I make the conditions around me. I do think though that getting out of the house can be good, a change of scenery often helps get the inspiration and motivation flowing again.

Setting a mood for own self or getting the right inspiration to start writing is not an easy task. But if found a right topic in a forum and it matches one's expertise and passion, I think the mood to write will automatically "appear". So to me, the mood is determined by one's readings and knowledge about a topic. Writer cannot find mood to write by searching for it immediately before writing, one has to be always widely read.

I definitely feel the same way on that. If I see a topic I have expertise on, the words and inspiration flow really easily. I guess that’s a good message - if you write about what you know about it should flow much more naturally!

I work from home and my bedroom is my office. My husband is at home with me and we are both together in the bedroom all day. There are no quiet areas in our small cramped apartment. To get in the mood to write I prepare my mind to block out my husband and all his distractions. He's involved in other activities and sometimes he's noisy. Once I can mentally block him out, I can focus on my writing. LOL.

I agree. Being alone can trigger your hidden self within you that could help you gather your thoughts for your content.

A writer is a human being as well, it also has the mood on when he or she is eager to write an article or not, I set up my mood by reading some good articles from the thread that I will be posting, from what I can get an idea so that I can build my own article that is unique.

I have this preference of writing with soft music playing in the background of the room where I'm doing my freelance writing.

This soft music helps me to flow well with or on whatever topic I'm writing on. I'm well aware of the fact that some people gets easily distracted with music playing. Some wouldn't even know when they stopped writing and join singing along with the music.

Depending on what I am writing, I cater my music to whatever mood I am trying to portray. If it is a creative piece looking to convey loss, anger, happiness, I put on a playlist that compliments it. Hearing an artist convey their emotions puts me in the right mind set and helps lead me. If I'm writing something more professional I close out all other outside influences, grab a coffee, sit at my desk and surround myself with the sources I need to complete my writing. I don't even listen to music, I just focus every bit of myself on my work. The cup of coffee really helps with that one How do you set the mood when you\

I won't go writing without a mug of hot coffee. The bitter lingering taste of a strong coffee always gives me the motivation I need to write and start my day. My coffee soothes my stress and relaxes me to the point that I could think clearer and gains more focus on my material. I am a bit a sleepy head and I really can't go making my craft without a mug of hot coffee in range.

I have this odd habit of writing immediately I wake up and still in bed. It's like I'm always preped in my sleep with a new thought to write on immediately I'm up from my sleep.

Well, sometimes I get tired of writing when I'm not really in good mood. But I usually write when I feel like doing it especially after I do research about my topic which makes me inspired to write something about it. It is just like whenever I gathered new information or knowledge, that is the time my mind and my body want to start writing. Maybe I need some inspiration first, and every time that it gets a little worse I take a break or a good rest to prevent my self from being lost on the track.

Depends on you’re writing and the topic. Are you writing for a client for, yourself or a blog? It also depends on what topic you're writing on.For example I write in the health niche. As motivation I use what I'm going through at the moment.For example returns on my diet, what's working what's not working, also I'm inspired by what issues people have, For example stories I read on Twitter, sometimes through my friends and relatives.

Thanks for a good question. Maybe a good rest will do for me. It is not easy to do something great and sensible especially if you are not prepared physically, mentally and emotionally. This requires a good planning as the saying goes, "Failing to plan is planning to fail." A good planning and a good rest will help you to get inspired and help your mind functions well. I have this personal experience about writing a poem for my girlfriend. At first, I can hardly get an inspiration maybe because I am not in the mood or maybe I am just a little bit tired at that time. So, I decided to get some rest first. After a few hours of rest, I get back to my work and I was amazed because I finished that poem in just a few minutes.

I usually write at night when every one in our home is sleeping. It is easier for me to be in the mood since everything is quiet already. I prepare hot coffee and go to the most comfortable spot where I could both relax and write. There are instances that this practice makes me sleepy that whatever I do, it seems like the bed is pulling me. I cannot write anything in that situation so I will just sleep it off and just wake up earlier than every one at home to start writing.

I am definitely the kind of person that appreciates peace and quiet when I work too. It's hard for me to get into the right headspace if there is lots of noise and other distractions going on.

I suppose it would depend on the content that I’m writing.

When I’m working on professional material, I like to keep a fresh and energized environment. I open up all the windows in my house, I let the sunshine and fresh air in, I make some refreshing green tea, and I do some stretching before I actually get into the writing. I like to do all this specifically in the morning.

If I’m doing something like journaling or just creative writing, I prefer to have a moodier atmosphere. I’ll typically wait until the evening, make some herbal tea, and light a cinnamon scented candle or incense. I’ll probably do a bit of meditation and then I get into the writing process.

How I set the mood depends entirely on what I want the tone of the content to be.

There's something magically invigorating about sunshine and fresh air. Oddly, I even like opening the windows in the winter - it gets a little chilly, but I seem to work well when I feel cool and refreshed. I guess it just makes me feel alive, for lack of a better way of explaining it!

Sounds like you have a good routine for getting motivated to write!

I actually don’t think it’s odd to open your windows during the winter! Winter can get so stuffy, especially with radiators and heaters raising dust all over the place. Opening up a window and letting the crisp, cool air in can feel, well, like a breath of fresh air!

The hippie side of me wants to say that letting in fresh air livens and replenishes the stale energy in your home. The truth in any case is that air can get stale like anything else if you don’t have proper circulation, which is why some rooms can feel “muggy” if a window hasn’t been opened in a while.

I’m willing to sacrifice a little on my heating bill for the sake of bringing in some clean air, haha.

I think that setting a mood when you are writing is very important when you are writing. This determines what you will write. If you write for the sake of writing it will show in your content, if you write from a place of inspiration then you may come up with fantastic content. I think that this makes a real difference. I have had times where I write to complete a job and the content, is not that great.

Yes I agree with that, if our mind and body are not at ease then there is a big possibility that we will not be motivated to do our writings and we will end up unproductive for that. Sometimes we must really give time for our body to have some rest in a way of giving much sleep on it because it can affect our moods and concentration in writings.

For me, to set the mood I would really watch a certain tv series or anime because these two are the things I love doing and they hold a great story to make. It's not really copying the idea or the writings that I am watching. It's mostly about getting an idea, mashing up some ideas together and to create something that is unique and creative. Having an idea at first hand is always best but there are actually times where I just start to write and let the flow go on. One thing that I am sure of doing is to get my mind in the zone to write. Not having a great mind or concept about what you're planning on writing will really affect the story.

I set the mood for writing by first going out of my way to remove myself from my apartment. For some reason I can’t write in my own home. I just can’t get anything done. And I can’t get anything done in any place traditionally reserved for writing, like the library. What I’ve done on a few occasions is put my laptop in my bag and throw it in the backseat of my car, take off from my town. I’ll blast some Migos out of the windows until I roll into a parking space outside of a motel. It doesn’t have to be a super nice motel, but I want to be able to focus on writing and not whether I should be concerned about lice or bedbugs. I’ll power through a few messy chapter drafts through the next two or three days - I can’t just put down and pick up writing every hour; I’m downright grinding in my inspired mood when I’m there.

To set my mood during writing I always prepare several things on my desk, but prior to that I turn off the light and turn on some jazz music.
Obviously, afterwards I get some coffee and something sweet (it's known to improve brain performance).
When these conditions are met I begin to write, and it's a huge pleasure to do so under these circumstances.

Take a good rest, eat your favorite food, listen to music, take a walk, go out with nature and bond with your friends or family. These are factors that help me set my mood in writing. Everyday is not always the same so you need to get some inspirations first before writing.

I usually stay away from people and try to sit in a quiet and peaceful environment before I begin to write. I usually choose a park or an open area which I feel is the best place to collect all your thoughts and pen them down together. Sitting in between people will result in a lot of disturbance and will not allow the free flow of thoughts. I then, begin to start thinking deeply and then once an idea strikes, I immediately note it down before it goes out of my memory.

I mean think about the breeze and all that fresh air. I think I would add my earphones and mp3 player to this and this would be the perfect environment for me to work in.

By talking a walk outside for a while and then come back with a more relax mind frame, and when I start I just listen to music mostly music that makes me more calm and focused and then I think of a certain object and expand other things related to it, I just get in a state of flow where I'd be writing things subconsciously or without making a conscious effort to think of it.

How do you set the mood when you're writing: Ideas flashes and it came into my mind when I am already eat my meals. To come up those better ideas, I like/prefer to stay those peaceful place, a relaxing scenery that make my mind feel at ease and relax. Then, whatever I think suddenly an idea came on my mind. And also with the heart and mind connected there were so many better ideas that came out of nowhere.
