Do you have one? A special place you go to write? If you write more than one genre, do you have a different place that sparks imigination and creativity for different work?

I write notes in my notebook for my books everywhere. I prefer doing this, as well as reading..outside. However, being in the city this is less possible, so I'm glad for being flexible. For actually sitting down and writing the books, it largely depends on where the computer is, lmao. I will sometimes go to certain locations to get more of a feel for a story. That depends on the story though, most of the feelings come from inspiration from people I know..and the world as they perceive it.

h, me too. I like real experience to lead my writing. Even if that real experience has to be gleaned from others.

sometimes i like to go to a crowded public place and people watch. different strangers inspire me. get ideas. the park is a relaxing place to write as you watch the ducks swimming in the pond or kids playing in the playground. pool area is another good place to write, watching people in the pool and jacuzzi, and well as bbq parties. beach is another good place to write, in front of the ocean with all the action all around you.

Hi, I usually write at home; however I've found 2 other places that I could do some writing. One is at this Buddhist temple I visited some time back. On most days, it is calm and peaceful - the atmosphere inspires serious thinking. There are benches and tables set under the shade of trees, with lots of Buddhist sayings hanging on plaques. The other one is at Coffee Bean. It's quiet during the morning hours, and with a cup of coffee, I can get my brain cells moving!

That's two votes for the coffee shops, and your Buddist temple sounds a lot like the park...so two votes for the outdoors. Thanks

I don't have a special place to write. Mostly I write on my bed, in my room, beside my sleeping daughter....:) Can't write when she's awake or she'll press the keyboard with 8s like this 888888888888888888888888888888888888 LOL! Just an example!

hehe..yeah I know the feeling. I'm glad my baby is 3 and can occupy herself for a while. It still can be dificult, she wants me to go to game sites so she can play. I too often write in my bed, I find it peaceful and relaxing so it seems the words flow better. Even when I am preparing a school paper.

I don't think I have one but I would love to find one. Most of the time, I write in my bedroom. Sometimes I write at work. I just kind of write when I am hit with the mood or experiencing some extreme emotion. That is when creative juices seem to flow for me. But I would love to find or develop a place/space that is inducive to creativity.

Hi! I usually write poems and stories and I don't really have one special creation place but, thinking about this topic, I've found that most times I write in my bedroom... Maybe it's because I feel more comfortable than in any other place, I have there all the things that make me happy and nobody would bother me when I'm there... Interesting topic, thanks!
