When you are writing a book there will be many things that will affect the writing process. They could come in the form of an annoying friend, loud neighbors or street noise. And if you are not careful these interruptions can derail the entire writing process. Which is why it is important that you find the perfect place to write in. That way, no one will be able to interrupt you during the writing process. But this is easier said than done because life can easily get in the way of your writing sessions. So when looking for a perfect writing place, you should make sure that it is comfortable, conducive to writing and most especially inspiring. Here are some great examples of places that will jumpstart the writing process.
- The Library
Quiet and solitude is one of the most important things you should look for when writing a novel. And the library has these qualities in ample supply. The library is one of the best places to go to for a writing session. This is because people are encouraged to be quiet and not bother other people. There’s also the fact that most libraries have comfortable furniture to sit on and a multitude of books to draw inspiration from. The only setback is that most libraries are not open during the late hours and the weekends. So you will have to find another alternative when the libraries are closed.
Bookstores are in a way quite similar to libraries. They also store a great deal of books and they are also a haven for bibliophiles. The only difference is that Bookstores tend to be a lot busier. But make no mistake bookstores are great for writing sessions. This is because of the myriad of books and the large collection of bibliophiles present. Just make sure that you select a bookstore that has good furniture to sit on and is relatively quiet. The best case scenario is if you can find a bookstore with a café inside it.
In the past few years cafés have become quite popular as writer hangouts. With the potent combination of great coffee and comfortable armchairs, cafés are truly great places to have a writing session. It is also a great place to meet up with fellow writers and have a nice chat over a cup of coffee. But you should be choosy when it comes to cafes if you are looking for a place to write. Some cafés may cater to a loud crowd and a loud environment is not conducive to the writing process. So when you are looking for a good café to hang out in, make sure that it is comfortable, caters to a mellower crowd and has great coffee.
- The Beach
Nothing beats lounging on the beach with a cold drink and working on your latest novel. Writing on the beach can be a very pleasant and enriching experience and you should try doing it every chance you get. The only setback here is that the weather can get quite unpredictable, and your writing session can get interrupted pretty quickly. So if you are thinking of spending a writing session on the beach it always pays to bring an umbrella and some sunscreen.
- The Woods
If you are the adventurous type of writer you should try going to the woods and writing your book there. If you are looking for peace and quiet nothing really beats the solitude of the woods. By going back to the bare necessities you will be able to see life through a whole new perspective. It is also a great place to go on hikes, sleep under the stars and look at the beautiful sights of nature. Just make sure that you come prepared. Bring a tent and all the provisions you will need for the trip. Take all precautions and stay safe. As beautiful as the forest is, it is still a dangerous place if you are not careful.
- The open road
As cliché as it may seem going on a road trip is a great way to gain a new perspective on life. It is also a great way to get your creative juices flowing. Waking up in a new place every morning can be quite refreshing and it will make the writing process so much more interesting. The thrill of the unknown and meeting new people is a truly enriching experience. Fair warning though, when you do go out on a road trip be on your guard. Because as exciting as it can be to travel, the open road still has a lot of hazards to look out for.
