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. I was also accompanied by two of my favorite writing friends, Tracy Hart and Ginger Moran.
– In bed in the morning: When I still have a toe in the dream state, the writing can be especially juicy.
– In a workshop at the University of Rhode Island’s Ocean State Summer Writing Conference: Kristen Prevalet’s nonlinear exercises helped me loosen up and take risks.
Where are you finding inspiration? Please share…
