Over the years I’ve learned a bit about atmospheres, the right atmospheres, the wrong atmospheres, and of course there’s the what in the heck was I thinking when I decided that this would be a good atmosphere to write in.
Usually when writing I would write at home because it was peaceful, quiet, and there was just something about writing in my office that made my creative energy flow; however it’s become a lot less peaceful and quiet recently. Before my internet went out I wouldn’t have thought that writing in a Barnes & Noble cafe would be even more peaceful than writing in my office, but there’s just something about it. I feel more like a writer sitting in a cafe writing than I do at home. I know that probably sounds extremely cliche however I don’t believe that I actually care how cliche it sounds.
I think that there a a few reasons why I like the cafe atmosphere: 1 I don’t hear my neighbors dogs braking while working, or my neighbor yelling at the dogs for braking. 2 There’s no random distractions, it’s like when I come here no one can interrupt my thoughts, or my thought process. That’s something that I truly cannot stand in the least, especially when I’ve just come up with an idea and wind up forgetting what it was later because somebody interrupted me. I love having absolutely no interruptions.
Now that I’ve said that someone I know is probably going to come looking for me here, just to annoy me. Why is that you ask? Because it’s just my luck.
3 Last but not least I feel a connection to one of my favorite authors when writing in this cafe.
W ell that about it for my atmosphere post, if this was kinda lame my apologizes, but this was about the only thing that came to mind for a post. I do think that the right atmosphere is important for a writer’s creativity however.
