I know that can come across as disappointing to some of you who may think that writers write late at night with a coffee mug next to their laptops. I don’t follow that category. Actually, I don’t follow any category when it comes to writing.
However, I think that I get inspired in airports. There’s something magically powerful about airports I always feel; dreams, goodbyes, new hi’s, aspirations, tears, anxiety, dates, new beginnings, deep thoughts. Airports have vibes which I never catch anywhere else.
Recently I found out that I’ve got no writing rituals. I thought to myself;” hmmm, why not try to follow the rituals of other writers and go write in a cafe like they do?”
So I did. Guess what happened?
I couldn’t write.
I forced myself to drink coffee, but that wasn’t productive. I ended up inviting friends to join me over coffee and we had a non-ending chat.
If It’s safe to say that I have “light” rituals, I’ll go with having munchies while writing. Munchies in a zero noise environment! That’s my definition of inspiration.
Tell me about your writing rituals! 💜
