5 Weird Places to Write

Pull up a chair and enjoy few weird places to write! Sure, I have a studio in my home and libraries around corner, but sometimes one needs a place private yet public, quiet yet alive, under the radar yet odd–all without home distractions. A few of my favorite spots…

  • Parking Lots In the privacy of your vehicle, you can write, spy, and possibly witness shoplifters giggling and running away.
  • Grocery Store Cafés Watch people come and go, or stare out upon the sea of cars.
  • Goodwill Superstore The bins change every so often, so everyone has to clear out and wait in the furniture section. No one cares if you sit and write for a while, as long as you don’t get in anyone’s way when shopping reopens. Another man’s trash isn’t necessarily your treasure.
  • Furniture Department of Boscov’s Department Store Or any department store. Just smile and say you’re testing options. The couches are clean-no coins in the crevices or crumbs ground into the upholstery, mmm…. No wonder I prefer to write here than at home.
  • Lawn Furniture Department of Yeah-I’m-Gonna-Do-It-Myself Stores Similar to furniture stores. Just smile and say you’re testing out a few possible options, that is, if any of the staff offer to help you at all.

Sedona, Arizona. An awesome place to write! Wish I was there.

If I were cool, I would have blogged on awesome places to write, but hey, make do with what you got.

Right on, write on! Keep reading, keep scouting for good nooks! ‘Til next…
