I’ve done a moderate amount of writing during this vacation trip. Sitting outside, with trees and plants in the garden nearby is most conducive to my creativity, I’ve found. Something about having life and nature nearby inspires more ideas in my head than bland office walls and florescent lights. Thunder rumbling, rain clattering, wind hissing in leaves, chirping birds and buzzing insects–all of these are better than silence. The smell of flowers or herbs or grass, the sight of living green stretching toward the light somehow inspires growth in my mind.
If you’re having trouble writing, try going outside in the sun and grass, and just breathing and observing for some time. Then the words will come to you.
