Do you write anytime or anywhere?
I find I write best if I have a routine, but life doesn’t alway cooperate. I’m able to write during random times during the day or when I have a free half hour here or there, but what really gets me is too much external input.
I find can’t write while on a long distance drive, but I can write while on a plane. Could be because there is too much to see in the passing landscape along the highway, but really, on a plane? What’s to see.
I can write while I’m alone on a walk (digital recorder is much easier and safer than a pen while walking). But if someone is with me, it’s pretty rude to work on a novel instead of socializing with a walking partner, so no writing during social times.
I can write while we are sailing, assuming my husband is at the helm and the water is flat. Rough water = no writing.
I can write if a TV is on in another room. But I can’t write if music is on. TV – boring. Music – interesting.
I can write in very short periods of time but not if there are too many interesting things going on around me.
When do you write best? Do you get frustrated when you can’t get enough writing time?
Thanks for reading . . .
