My wife and I were discussing one of the key benefits of being a writer: the dress code.
Because I do most of my writing in the wee small hours of the morning, I generally fall out of bed and into my chair in my pajamas. (And you should understand that “pajamas” is a euphemism for underwear.)
In days of yore, did men actually wear jackets and ties when they sat down to write? Okay, maybe T.S. Eliot, but others? Really? Granted, they may not have been writing in their “pajamas,” but I’d bet they dressed casually and comfortably for this internal, solitary work. (And I wouldn’t be surprised if many writers of yore did work in their “pajamas.”)
So what about you? What is your writing dress code?
