When I write fiction I do so with my eyes closed so I can imagine the scene with very little outside influence.

I always have coffee - even mid-summer.

What say you?

When I write my stories based on real lift often I do so while listening to music that reminds me of that situation.

But when writing fiction I usually find pictures that remind of my characters and use them for inspiration.

I often write on my laptop while laying flat on the floor, propped up on a little pillow with a bottle of blue gatorade by my side.

Music seems to be a recurring theme in this thread, so it can't be that unusual. I like to have music on when writing, and sometimes it influences my writing. Most of the time, I'm naked; freedom from clothes equals freedom of thought. And I also talk to myself, sometimes actually having the character's conversations out loud, in the voices I want them to use. And people say I'm weird. Pffft, I'm not weird, I'm super duper hyper weird!

I don't know about weird well it might be a little unusual. I write the focus scene (how I see it, it changes per story) of a story in almost pitch black normally in the middle of the night with a pen and paper. If I get really into what I've imagined then I'll go and hunt the laptop down and write it up, but it takes me ages to finish a story to the point of actually believing in it to publishing it.

But I did once sit outside my yoga class in my car for about 5 hours because I got into a story and lost track of time so just kept writing it on my phone.
