How To Clean a House Like a Writer #AmWriting – Written By Lucy Mitchell

House cleaning is a useful activity for writers.

The amount of house cleaning a writer does depends on a number of factors:

  • Stage of WIP. If the writer is in that euphoric writing stage (up to the first 5k words for most of us) house cleaning will be de-prioritised. On the other hand if the writer is knee deep and wading through the mid novel swamp then house cleaning will happen. If the writer hates their WIP (can happen at any stage) or just wants to avoid it (again this can happen at ANY stage) then house cleaning is guaranteed.
  • Twitter. If Twitter is down it is more than likely the writer’s house / flat / room will get cleaned.
  • Deadlines. If the writer is in a sweaty, deadline-induced panic then the state of the house will be ignored until the writer has met their deadline and spent a few days recovering.
  • Procrastination levels. When experiecing high levels of procrastination a writer can spot two books out of place from across the room, a spec of dust on a bookshelf and a spice rack which urgently needs a new colour code system.
