Passing Time

Stephanie

From Kim King, author of the blog “Consider the Lilies.”

“Had a couple hours in the Charlotte airport today…awesome people watching and writing time. The two go hand in hand for me now that I think on it…I enjoy writing in public places.  The noise and movement give parameters–something to push against and lean into all at the same time.”

These statements raise a few interesting questions; Do you always carry a notebook with you, and do you like writing in public? As solitary as I often prefer my creative time to be, there is something to be said for the quiet that lives amongst the chaos.

  1. I always have a notebook with me as well. I just find that sometimes I’m more productive if I get out of my usual workspace. Sometimes a change of scenery is all I need to get out of a rut. And like the article mentioned, people watching is the best writing prompt there is.

  3. I always have my journal with me, and tho it’s not optimum, I have busted it out in airports, at parks, and other public spaces. In fact, one of the most productive journaling sessions I ever had was on Veteran’s Day a couple years ago in a park, at a pic-a-nic table in the bright fall sunshine.
