Six Places I Meet Inspiration
I used to think my ah-hah moments were random, but recently I noticed that they consistently arrive when I am in particular places or doing specific activities:
1) Unloading the dishwasher
2) Pulling morning glory out of the wood chips in the front garden
3) Driving anywhere for about ten minutes
4) Taking a quick shower
5) Rocking in my super-ugly, 1970’s floral rocking chair by the front window, sitting cross-legged, and staring out at the trees across the street
6) Walking in the woods behind my house for about twenty minutes
In order for inspirations to come to me, I must make myself available to receive. I believe that writer’s block is often connected to sitting still. So, when I find myself stuck, I intentionally connect my body with my mind and choose one of the things from my short-list.
I’m curious—do you have places of inspiration? An activity or location where your muse likes to meet for a coffee date? Comment in the comments section below!
