What are your preparations before reading or writing, /lit/?
>Mental Exercises
>Lighting Mood
>Music/Background
>Meditation or Reflection
>etc

My ability to focus recently has been weak. The gf convinced me to try Ritalin, but I'm afraid of the long term effects.
Are there experienced writers or dedicated book worms willing to help a stranger?

try the pomodoro method. i have adhd (or something like it) and it helps immensely when it comes to reading or writing when I don't feel the flow.
>>
>reading

No music or conversation in the background. No white objects in my peripheral vision near the book.

>writing

I play abrasive music if possible and write with a pen on lined paper. Walking before a writing session always increases my creativity.
>>

I like to say some prayers before studying/reading. I suppose it's silly to most of you, but it gives me a sense of purpose and duty if I am doing it for God's glory and the benefit of myself, my family and my nation. I suppose that falls under mental exercises/meditation/reflection.

A well lit room, or preferably a room with ample daylight and no distractions, music, or anything like that.

Dump your girlfriend.

Bach wrote music for God. That is all the evidence I need to convincd me that it isn't a silly endeavour.
>>
>>7672774
bach is trash tho
>>
>>7672790
Please fuck off with your meme attitude. Bach is amazing.
>>
>>7672797
Your attitude is the meme. Bach being shit is real life, not memes.
>>
>>7672803
Do you get off on this? Post your favourite musicians. Bach is one of my reasons for living.
>>
Avoid technology, isolate self from stressful distractions (e.g. window climbing cat).
