Stock Your Tools
You won't find a chef's kitchen without a cutting board, and you shouldn't find a reading and writing room without the tools necessary to get the job done. Your computer might be your preferred composition implement of choice, but also make sure you have plenty of paper and pens or pencils on hand. Whatever tools you use, be sure to keep plenty in stock. Many writers are superstitious creatures and not being able to find that favorite pen can lead to the dreaded writer's block -- or at least a reason to stop writing and go to the store.
