Writing is one of my favorite passions.
I have a lot of hobbies, yes— everything from making leather bound books to beating my peers in chess to playing the violin— but writing has always been, and always will be, my utmost favorite way to spend my time.
In fact, I’m even currently in the process of writing a novel. Novel writing has been treating me well, as I enjoy sitting down at my desk and seeing my ideas come to life. In my eyes, there is nothing more satisfying than watching the story I have dreamed of seemingly unfold itself in one large document. However, there is only one thing that can prevent me from being productive when it comes to writing: bad heating and air conditioning. We all know how important heating and air conditioning are to comfort, especially in the months when temperatures are at their most drastic. With that in mind, it is absolutely impossible for me to concentrate and write my novel in a freezing cold room during the middle of winter, or a sweltering hot room during the middle of summer. If my heater is broken during winter, I might as well say goodbye to writing for that day. After all, how would I be able to concentrate on getting words out while shivering and chattering my teeth? At that point, my heater would be needed to make me feel comfortable and relaxed enough to focus on writing. The same goes for needing an air conditioner during the summer. I don’t think anyone could write something that they’re happy with while in an uncomfortably hot room with a broken air conditioner in summer. All in all, I couldn’t be more thankful that I have a room with good HVAC to write my novel in!
