Let me be VERY clear with everyone. I personally don't believe there's a "perfect writing environment." The truth is, our writing environments often perform directly alongside our own energy and excitement toward writing. When I speak at different conferences and beautiful minds are eager to know more about writing; the question I get often is, "Every writer needs to have a personalized writing space don't they?" My answer is always, "No!" Regardless of where you are, you can always take steps to make your writing whereabouts more personal. Like, adding a Starbucks cup into the mix over some soft classical Jazz. That instantly makes any area "perfect" for me to write in.
My content can often determine my location as well. If I'm blogging, creating a proposal, or marketing document; a coffee shop with a window view works perfectly. If I'm looking to create something lengthy, then I'll probably need to cuddle up on a comfortable bed or soft foundation that makes my body happy. Coffee is always present no matter what! But that's just me. I wrote my first book at a table with a wooden chair that didn't have a seat cushion. But what I was working on represented an urban environment with many loops, twirls, and action. So I was moving around in my seat a lot anyhow. My second book was written from my bed in complete silence. I felt the need to hear all of my thoughts and concentration was key.
Finding the perfect writing environment starts with us. We have to be ready and willing to write. Waiting on the chance to take two weeks off from work and land ourselves on a private resort in Mexico, could possibly be keeping the world from reading you're greatest work. Once we become consistent our writing will dictate our surroundings. So in closing, I want you ALL to know, your perfect writing space has been beating inside your upper left chest area this entire time. Now go find somewhere to write before it stops! #WriteOnWednesday
