Dylan got multiple fan mails.  He received the final print of a book.  Sand and Ash has gone to an editor.


Where do you write?  There is no agreement among authors on the best place.  Here’s another list of places to consider. It’s more about getting in the right frame of mind rather than the place, other than avoiding whatever is prone to distract you.  But sometimes the distractions can provide inspiration, too, if they suggest characters or ideas for your writing.

Do you take advantage of all the opportunities to write, or at least come up with ideas?  How about in the dentist’s waiting room? While your car is being serviced?  You can take your mind off your worries by dreaming up ideas for your book.  Maybe you should carry your note pad or tablet computer to record them.  Here are some tips for writers who have ideas after going to bed.

Write drunk; edit sober. ~Ernest Hemingway
