QoD Writing rituals Philip Athans

About avoiding writing rituals at all costs:

"Rituals are excuses for avoiding work and creativity. If you think you can only write your notes in that lovely leather-bound notebook your boyfriend gave you and only when it's dark and only when it's raining, you're fooling yourself. Write anywhere, at any time."

---Philip Athans (The Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction)

Hmmm, I don't have a leather bound notebook. Is it okay if I write my rituals on my laptop? Or on the way to the gathering? Or 15 minutes before the scheduled time? I've done all three.
