... were made for writing.
By popular demand, okay two commenters mentioned it, here are the cowboy boots I bought for writing.
They're Boulet, a Canadian brand, and they're deerhide.
I put them on and let them work their magic on my mind.
They're comfortable. They feel good. When I wear them I scale the dizzying heights of nearly 5'5".
They help me concentrate and think like my characters. One character likes the feel of bare feet in her boots. Good for her. I don't share the opinion, but at least I got a chance to try it and feel it for myself. It's all part of the research and it's important.
I often wonder what else my writing will compel me to do, but learning things and experiencing life are big draws for the job.
I have a very good job.
