Where do writers write? I guess most people figure if you are not stuck behind a computer putting in your 1,000 words a day, then you are not a writer. Yet, the moments when I get my best ideas happen outside. Yes, I said outside. Whether I’m walking, fishing, hiking, or sitting and admiring a great view, inspiration comes from being outside.

I think many would agree that people work out ideas when they are relaxed and for me that means outside. So the next time you need to work out part of your story plot or if you need a fresh idea for a book, talk a walk. Get out there!
