I was recently looking through some of my old journals and I found an entry from third grade where I wrote about my dream writing place. I have a feeling that this was a teacher inspired prompt and we had these journals at school at the time. My dream writing place was “under a weeping willow tree with nothing more than a pencil, notebook, and my imaginashun.” I spelled imagination wrong at the time. 🙂
I’m sure each one of you has a place in mind that would be the perfect place to write. Dream a little and share with us where that might be. Would you choose to write at an island resort? Or are you a cabin in the mountains writer? What location would inspire you and make writing a story even more enjoyable? Is there a reason you would pick this spot?
Okay, now back to reality. When I actually do write something–like a blog or a poem–I am usually at a desk either at the Books & Such office or at home in my office. I do think I’d be able to stretch my imagination better in some exotic location, but I don’t have that opportunity every day. Where do you write on a normal day? Are you satisfied with that location?
If your dream spot and your everyday spot are totally different, I suggest you try to bring a bit of that dream spot into your writing area in some way. If you aren’t like me and can keep a plant alive perhaps adding a plant could add happiness to your everyday location. If you are like me–with a black thumb–a framed picture of your dream might work well to inspire and relax you while you write.
I’m excited to read about your dream and everyday writing places! 🙂
