This morning I am sitting alone drinking coffee and listening to the conversations around me as I check my email, Twitter, and Facebook. I am of the opininion that sitting alone in coffee shops does wonders for a writers creativity. The things people talk about loudly for all the world to hear often times hold stories that can spark the best ideas. I never leave home without a small journal and a pen because I never know when some moment or some person is going to inspire a story in my head. I write it all down and come back to study it during those moments of writers block.
