Talking about Writing again—Where?
I had a friend ask me today “how can you write in a coffee shop, around all of those people?”
It gave me pause for a minute. I never thought about NOT writing here. I only think of the places I can’t write: my house, my office, my front porch. There are just too many distractions at home and work. My front porch is pretty and would totally make a great spot for writing if 1) I wasn’t terrified of bugs 2) we didn’t have an outdoor cat that is very needy and clingy. I envision him sitting on my laptop.
The other place I’m pretty successful is the library. CERTAIN libraries. I live in a county that has an awesome library system, so there are many locations to choose from. I prefer the smaller, quieter ones.
So where do you write? Can you write anywhere? I still have a hard time considering myself a writer, and I treat writing as a patient. I schedule it in for Wednesday mornings. I can force myself to write, whether I want to or not, because writing is my 10-1pm “patient”.
Distractions are another topic for another time 🙂
