Well, not always. But I do on occasion. Pretty much, when I am home I am dressing down no matter how you look at it.
Simply put, I am more comfortable dressed down than dressed up. I have a day job that I dress nicely for, but I seem to be more creative when I am comfortable. I want to be able to move freely from one task to another at any moment.
Of course, if I were to have meetings in my home I would dress for that company. I am a professional, after all.
It is about personal preference.
Some people are more creative, or more motivated, when dressed to the hilt. Others are not. I don’t run around looking like a slob, but comfort is important when I am writing.
I get more accomplished when I am comfortable.
When I am in my comfort zone, I get more out of a writing-work day. I seem to be able to breeze through all of the non-writing tasks that need to be done, then I can get comfortable and work on my articles, some blog posts, or a story. I am in that zone. I know exactly what needs to be done, and I do it.
When I am dressed up, I feel like I should be working as a secretary somewhere, handling phone calls and other office tasks that have nothing to do with writing. I am not able to hit my comfort zone completely, and the tasks I need to complete feel too much like work.
I go to my day job to work. At home, I just want to be comfortable.
How about you?
