As a writer, environment is everything. Where you are, what you see and who’s around all determine what comes out. There was a period of time where I would go to a Starbucks and just create. It was cool because I wouldn’t go to the same one all the time. It would be on different sides of the city, sometimes different counties or suburbs, but the experiences were unique. That uniqueness would inspire different ideas and results.
Lately, I just write at home or jot ideas down at work. It works, but I’m not constantly stimulated to write and the ideas kind of fizzle out. I have 3 books I am working on and I would like to finish them. No particular order, just get them done so I can move forward. I’m thinking about taking some time to venture out, post up somewhere and write again. I should probably stop thinking and just do it. Getting that new interaction, driving to that place, ordering that item and getting in a zone might be just the thing I need.
For disrupting my routine, even a small thing like this will help.
