Where Do We Do Our Best Writing?

A traditional favorite spot is the beach, though I have yet to write on the beach this summer. I’ve been thinking lately about where we find our inspiration and do our best writing. Some of the places that have worked for me this summer: – A dock on the river under a tree: It was cool and the sounds of nature and human activity provided inspiration.

When I saw that my coach and client, Teri Scheinzeit won Best Mentor/Coach of the Year 2011, I thought, here’s the answer to something I know I’m not the only one pondering: “How do I help people see instantly that what I’m offering is the best program out there?” A national award–yes.

I keep gaining weight and I know I will lose that weight when I write my book.” One beautiful soul told me recently that her belly actually looks pregnant, “I’ve gained weight in different places before and this time it’s all in my belly.

Robin Kall, host of Reading with Robin Shares How Writing Transformed Her Life

In preparation for my presentation, Express Yourself in Writing and Transform Your Life, I’ve been asking some writer friends how writing has transformed their lives. Robin Kall has kept a journal since third grade.  She says that she first thought that if she didn’t write every day she should just give up on the whole thing. Once she let go of that pressure, she let herself do it her own way, sometimes just jotting down a few notes–a handful memories of an event, for instance.
