Writers' Corner / Wearing costume while writing
« on: March 26, 2015, 09:52:50 PM »
Does anyone else ever find it useful and/or fun to dress in costume similar to the main character you're currently writing on?

Doesn't work if you're a gal writing about a three-headed male dragon, or switching characters quickly. But a few times when I donned translucent wings, or another time I wore a pinafore over a calico dress, pantaloons and a bonnet, it helped me tap into other realms of thought.

The hard part is doing this as an adult and hoping no one will see you. If you continually worry about someone finding you out, it's harder not to have one foot in the current realm on guard while slipping off into fairyland or the 1890s. Even if other people "understand why you're doing it," I find their presence pulls me right out of my suspension of disbelief.
