Favorite writing places
To me, train time feels like free time, time unencumbered by expectation. I can't clean the house or tackle my to do list. Really, I can only read, write, and stare into space. That freedom has led to some of my best thinking and writing. I'm grateful to be on the East Coast now, and to still have train travel (though less frequently!) in my life.
I've been thinking about good places to write because I'm going to be away from the blog for the next few weeks, and I'm anticipating a new and lovely writing situation. Let's hope so, because Project Fun needs a lot of revision work! And of course, I promise when I return I'll share all the details of my mysterious absence.
In the meantime, is there a place or situation in which your writing thrives?
*Of course I had to include this picture (taken by me), of the train arriving in Goathland, North Yorkshire, which was used in the Harry Potter films as the setting for Hogsmeade.
