With NaNoWriMo taking over, I’ve decided to look at the hygge behind my writing process. I recently wrote about how my environment affects my writing, and since Autumn is my favorite season and I have a cozy little apartment with big windows, it’s a good time for me and writing. I’ve compiled some images of the environments feeding my writing.
Looking around makes me really hopeful that my theories on the effects of a writer’s physical surroundings on their words are correct, because if they are, then my work might just be worth something.
The view from my window is beautiful. My favorite place to sit and write right now is on my couch, with cozy cable knit pillows. I write other places too, but this is my favorite. And I’ve got a cozy fake chinchilla blanket and earthy mug made by hand by a very dear friend (both wedding gifts), filled with cocoa tea, a Christmas gift from another amazing friend. That’s hygge.
