Just starting out on my writing journey, I really have not gotten a handle on what environment I need to be in to write my best. Personally I sometimes think that this is a waste of time and I should be spending my time on something else, maybe it is guilt that my to do list is long, but I sit here tapping away at the keyboard.
But when I start typing and the words start flowing, it is such a good feeling, a new high that I have never felt before, I want to learn more and grow and share what has long been locked in my mind, too uncomfortable to express, fearing that no one will like what I have to say anyway.
To me, the environment inside is more important than where I am, the ability to see the images and words in my mind clearly as I transpose them to paper or screen, that is the environment that I need to be in. I could be in the most remote corner of the earth, alone in a cabin in the woods or in a room with no one else around and still find my self getting distracted. The phrase “in the zone” comes to mind.
