I left my laptop at home and headed to the Phoenix Park. Instead of walking (which probably would have helped too), I headed to the cafe ‘Among the trees‘. Up on the second floor, I sat by the giant window. On the table, I lay my large coffee and notebook. After a couple of gulps and a gaze at the trees, words tumbled out of my head in a steady stream! It’s also worth noting that the lack of WiFi here was a bonus; it kept me focussed on writing and gathering ideas.
This is a habit that I am going to experiment with regularly! In order to be inspired to write creatively, we should stimulate all of our senses. Think along the lines of a pop-up office; one with very low rent too.
