This month’s Writer Wednesdays blog is like a round robin game of Show and Tell as the WW authors share their favorite place to write. Personally, I’m excited to get a peek inside the various writing havens to see where my friends tap into their creativity and spend playtime with their muse.
For this Florida girl who spent her childhood summers visiting her Abuela in Puerto Rico, if I’m looking for inspiration or need to refill my creative well or if I #amediting, you’ll find me here…
often with my trusty sidekick, Addi.
If I #amwriting new pages, a blanket on the beach is a little too cozy, but I do love writing in a spot with a beach view.
For me the open ocean evokes a fulfilling sense that anything and everything is possible. I will be published. I will honor my characters by telling their story the best I know how. So if I can write in a place like this…
I’m feeling like I #amblessed.
I’ll go back and forth between listening to the sound of the waves and popping in my headphones to let Pandora Radio serenade me with Spanish ballads like Luis Miguel’s “No Se Tu” or “Amarte es Un Placer.” The ocean waves and my favorite Spanish love songs never fail to put me in a romance-writing kind of mood.
Unfortunately, I don’t live right on the beach and my day job doesn’t need me to set up an office in a sandy alcove. I know, bummer. That means my jaunts to the ocean are relegated to the weekends when I can get away.
To appease my yearning for a sunny spot with a little shade, I’ll write in my home office for a while, then treat myself by moving my laptop out to my back yard. There I’ll set up shop on our picnic table underneath an awning.
If it’s been a long productive day and especially if I’ve met my writing goal, I treat myself even more by taking a nap on our hammock. 🙂
How about you? Where you do go for inspiration—if you’re a writer or for life in general? I’d love to hear about your productive spot or your getaway place that helps you refill your creative or emotional well.
