Where do you like to go for motivation? Maybe you do not have a place, so here is the challenge. Pick and share 4 places that are special to you that give you the needed impetus to write. Having said that, here’s mine.
1. My easy chair — It is a very comfortable and allows me the privilege to write in the privilege of my living room (lounge for my British readers).
2. The great outdoors — I love being out in nature. We live in Wyoming close to the Rocky Mountains. When I am walking enjoying the crisp, clean air, it often helps me to find additional ideas of sharing what is in my head.
3. Church buildings — For many years, I lived in England and just about every village has an old church. Some of these buildings are several hundred years old. Sitting in the church or out in the church grounds, I enjoyed listening to the birds chirping in the trees. It was an external motivator that I do not find so easy now.
4. Local coffee shops — Sorry, Starbucks, but I think your coffee is over-rated. I like to find little places where the ambiance is just right. Some stores have a little fireplace in the fall and winter time. With a warm cappuccino in one hand and a pen in the other, the ideas seem to flow freely. One of my favorite places had a large selection of books and was like an old bookstore.
