I follow a Facebook page called Write the World, and they do all sorts of little contests for young writers all over the country if not the globe. They also sometimes post links to interesting articles, which led me to this blog by Lisa Hilton.
This post is all about finding physical and mental space for writing. The author gives all sorts of tips, from what to hang over your desk for inspiration to finding out whether you prefer background noise or not, and she also talks about setting a routine for writing, and the importance of that.
If you are a writer like me, this article is a must-read!
