Writers and Lady Gaga: more in common than we thought?

Just a quick stop today. So we all know that Lady Gaga likes to wear unusual things, right? Meat dress, anyone? (Ah, I love Lady Gaga.) And many of us are writers/artists of some kind, are we not? And in true artistic fashion, do we not have our quirks? 

For instance, I wear weird stuff to work sometimes (for example: nothing. I've said this before, I do sometimes get undressed for a shower, then remember an idea, and start writing and before I know it, I'm working naked for hours...) and I'm sure I'm not the only one out there. Anyone else? No? Don't be shy!
So I love this Guardian article. Blog-friend and reader Alesa sent me the link several days ago and I decided I had to share it.

What are your artistic quirks?


  1. Haha, I've done the pre shower thing, too. Love Lady Gaga and your blog's new look!

  2. Unless I was writing in bed, I wasn't naked! Now of course everyone knows I sleep in the buff...

  3. I could hang out around the house in my pjs all day. But at some point I usually take them off and put on a house rag, something that isn't fit to be seen in public but which is delightfully comfortable.

  4. I'd stick to my chair if I tried to write in the buff, so I do put on some comfy clothes.

  5. I can't imagine that writing whilst in the nip is very comfy. Or indeed particularly hygenic on your soft furnishings! The special writing outfit that the article mentions does intrigue me though - what on earth would it consist of? I hope a large floppy hat features somewhere.

  6. Ispirations come anytime.
