My solution to that – which will help in all your future writing adventures – is to simply write where you are. Write everywhere. Carry a small notebook or use your smart phone and write, write, write. Jot notes about what you see or hear or how you feel. Note temperature, note drizzles or dry, note how the sweater you are wearing scratches your arms.
Step into your character and write how she feels in these surroundings: writing on the root of a giant sequoia, perhaps, or writing a haiku with a stick in the sand in Malibu. Would she balk because she has to have everything just so? Will she giggle? What is she wearing? What did she eat for breakfast, is it upsetting her tummy? Is she writing in blood or with a quill pen or with a mechanical pencil?
When you learn to write everywhere with whatever you’ve got, you will have a new angle in making your writing fun.
Write everywhere. With anything. Saying whatever pops into your head. Put those words into your Work-in-Progress-Word-Bank and move along.
If all you get out of this playful writing experiment is a happier creative life, what will you lose in trying it?
