Well, I’m guilty of the same behaviors. I’ve been known to draft a few paragraphs while in the bathroom, out walking the dog, or taking a break from vacuuming while still holding a whirling machine.
And in the last few days I’ve used no less than 3 separate devices to work on my manuscripts - my iPad, iPhone, and my PC. But unlike Robin Williams I had rotated using several different keyboards on my mobile devices and I wrote in many unique locations, including the bathroom, by walking around the house, and while inside and outside my home. I even went old school with paper and pencil.
I started the morning typing out my word count while I listened to the rain fall as I sat on my couch. Later, I moved to the kitchen table next to a slightly open window where I could feel the breeze as I formed my story. When the clouds had gone, I moved outside to write some more. I felt very energetic by rotating locations and by being outdoors.
I’ve noticed my muse loves variety in writing and the flexibility that comes with that kind of change. Creating in varying styles and locations leads to inspiration. Writing using the same method and in the same location can stifle your imagination and decrease your desire to work.
If you find yourself in a rut and facing the dreaded writers block, try using a different device to log your sentences or craft in a new location. Your muse may thank you for the change!
