11 Dec The best place to write a book!
We tend to think authors write books in romantic places.
We imagine sweeping vistas and cabins and sunsets worthy of Instagram. Or we imagine bustling city coffee houses, perhaps Paris and a jaunty hat.
Both images are wrong.
The writers I know and love don’t write somewhere sexy.
The environment is not necessarily charming.
It’s not beautiful.
The only thing it is, is functional.
It’s a spot they can create in. A spot they can focus in. A spot they can hide in.
We all want to find a perfect space to chase our dreams, but that’s garbage. The best place to work on your dream is wherever you can.
I wrote my first book in a Burger King. Why? It was a ghost town. I could hustle. You don’t go to Starbucks to write. You go to Starbucks to be seen.
