Every author has a place that inspires great writings. On a good day, the office does it for me. My desk faces the east window. When it’s cleaned off, it’s a perfect workspace. In addition, the early morning chatter of the birds creates a serene setting. It gets even better if I can make the early rising (5 am) and start off with a favorite cup of herbal tea (Tazo’s Passion or Wild Sweet Orange are favorites).
If I need a getaway, I plan a day at a friend’s office. Several of them have conference rooms that offer an inspiring space as well as quiet. Other colleagues have empty offices that I use on occasion. Once we set the ground rules (not visiting except as agreed upon), I find it quite easy to pen a few thousand words.
Occasionally, the public library provides a place of solitude and quiet. Planning ahead is often rewarded by my choice of meeting rooms within the facility.
