Got back to hotel just before the storm hit
What a difference a day makes
It was extremely humid and hot when the storm hit. Everything went out, including the channels on the hotel T.V. I had planned on sitting out on the balcony, but not possible now. The thunder and lightening was so strong and powerful that it was scary. I decided to challenge my brain by playing word games on my iPad.
The next day, the sky was clear and bright. A beautiful day it was, and the breeze was intoxicating. This was going to be a week for doing absolutely nothing, so I thought. The next thing I knew, I opened the door to the balcony, picked up my iPad, opened Evernote, and began to write. Hmm….I was feeling inspired! I guess it was silly of me to think that I would actually take a vacation from writing, because ‘Writers’ write!
Primarily, I write in the morning. Early morning brings inspiration. I’ve also been inspired to write in some of the oddest places and times. I often tell myself that I’ll remember the thought that just swept across my mind, but I know that I won’t. I reach for a pen and some paper and start writing. If I have my iPad with me, that’s even better because I can use Evernote to keep track of my notes.
I can get so involved with writing that I forget to have breakfast. I think of the quickest thing that I can make and quickly get back to writing. Since what I’m working on is a Non-Fiction piece, I can choose any chapter, adding something new, or continue from where I left off. This is a no brainer for me due to the fact that I am working from an outline.
Inspiration comes when it comes. I go with the flow. Although the early morning hours is generally when I write, I don’t want to make that the only time. I want to allow myself to write freely without being aware of the time of day.
