Having a change of scene of writing venue seems to have given me renewed ideas and motivation.
Like many writers, I find it extremely difficult to write at home. There are just too many distractions and I procrastinate like mad!
A new tea shop opened up near us about a year ago and just recently, I decided to take my notebook in there and work on my WIP. I found the pretty pastel surroundings; the chinking tea sets and mouth-watering array of baking calming yet encouraging.
To my surprise, I ended sitting in there for almost two hours with a pot of tea and a mini cupcake (I managed a bit of self restraint!) and wrote around 1,000 words.
Since then, I have frequented the little tea shop almost every day.
Just on Friday, I sat in there again and penned another two chapters of my WIP.
The welcoming hospitality of the family who own it; the soft background music of artists such as Adele and Ed Sheerin and the general, relaxed atmosphere is something I look forward to.
So as another working week starts again, guess where I’m planning to go for (hopefully) another productive series of writing sessions?
The only down-side is the tempting array of baking….think I might have to wear dark glasses when I order my pot of tea…!
Happy Writing everyone – wherever you are motivated to do it!
