A writing environment

Closing my eyes, I can see it. Sometimes it is more vivid than when my eyes are open.

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.

See Ya

About joatmon14

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14
