5 Places for Great Writing.
Writers write everywhere, but when you have trouble we have 5 suggestions for where to gain inspiration. These are simple and to the point, and they work. If you don’t believe us try them. They are in no particular order.
If you can find a forest these days they will inspire you. They are quiet (quiet from the world) and much different than our normal living areas. Much has come from this setting. Try it.
2. Cemetery at dusk
A cemetery is quiet and full of emotion. It seems a little melodramatic, but it works, who knows why. You don’t have to write horror stories to gain inspiration from this place.
If you’ve never been, you must go. They are wild places full of sounds you probably have never heard. A must on the list of places to try.
4. Busy Hotel Lobby
With all the people coming and going, it is no wonder that you can find great inspiration and even great stories in a hotel lobby. Most people live close to one, try it.
5. Coffee houses
It is hard to say why this is a favorite hangout for writers, but it is. If you have gone to your local coffee house to write, try it once. If you have a big name coffee house avoid it. Go to the mom and pop place down the street, and you’ll find inspiration.
