As you know I have been regularly interviewing authors about their writing practices and experiences. In each interview I have also asked the authors to tell me what they wear whilst working on their novels.
This valuable insight into a writer’s life deserves a summary blog post.
So, let’s see what 20 authors wear whilst writing their books:
- Pyjamas covered in baby spit. Helen Treharne.
- One wild and colourful item. Kelsey Horton.
- Tweed pyjamas, lucky pants and a fake beard. Tom Hocknell.
- An authentic Tudor doublet and host, whilst wearing medieval shoes with fashionably long toes. Tony Riches.
- Something cool and glamorous. Helen Jones.
- Cheese and coffee stains. Geoff Le Pard.
- A comfortable outfit. Don Massenzio.
- A nice comfy fleece with M&S tracksuit or tartan pjs. Nicholas Rossis.
- A smile and Chanel No. 5. Anita Dawes.
- Whatever I have on before dropping the kids off at school. Rachael Ritchey.
- T-shirts and shorts (all year round). Chris Mentzer.
- Pyjamas or nothing at all. S.K. Nicholls.
- Either fully made up with hair and makeup or I look homeless. Shelley Wilson.
- Shorts and a tank top. Sue Coletta.
- Yoga pants and a tank top. Tracy Krimmer.
- Pyjamas and a hoodie. Isabelle Andover.
- Sweats with or without chocolate stains, depending on the day I am having. Kimberly Wenzler.
