How My New Environment Helps My Writing
There is something about my new small-town environment that invigorates my senses. Every morning, I hear the train coming through Washington, Iowa, sounding it's horn the same way it did over a century ago. My new surroundings help me to write about my main character who goes on a journey in search of his roots. It helps that time stands still where I'm now living. I have two or three twilight zone moments every day. I feel like all five of my senses are alive in a new way.
If you are feeling stagnant with your writing, try visiting a new place. Sometimes, all it takes to get out of a rut is to change the scenery around you. Have you ever found inspiration by changing your address? Please comment below.
