Whether at a local Starbucks, library or park, I can write anywhere as long as I have my notebook, laptop, food and inspiration.
I prefer to write in a social setting with good vibes. To me, the source of a good vibe is off of people who are in constant motion, because they are being productive in some way. This atmosphere helps me stay conscious of time passing, thus motivating me to continue my work.
Food is also at the heart of my writing. In fact, as I’m typing this up now, I’ve been munching away at a Nature Valley granola bar (a Crunchy Oats & Honey one). It’s a great way to keep the ball rolling. At this time of year, I’m most likely at a Starbucks sipping on a Waffle Cone Frappuccino, which is seasonal 😦 .
I don’t always create posts from scratch. I tend to find inspiration at the oddest times. Like when I’m stuck in traffic and listening to Little Mix on Pandora. Or while cruising through the tempting isles during a Target run. To keep track of my ideas, I carry a notebook in my purse, that I use to capture everything on paper.
The most important thing about writing, especially when posting on a blog, is being committed. There will be slow days when you may suffer from writer’s block. Don’t let those days deter you from all those great progress you’ve made. Grab a cup of coffee with a friend and talk about the interests you share. You could debate the results of the season finale of Dancing With the Stars (no spoilers, but it was BREATHTAKING).
This is a quote I found on Goodreads, a fantastic website for book lovers, which suitably sums up this post,
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath,
