Shake your writing life up
By Jim Woods • Issue #2 • View online
Hi there, 
Good morning from Virginia Beach. I’m currently on vacation with my family and I’m writing this for you on a pull-out couch with a sailboat blanket on it. On the floor there is a big rug with anchors on it. (Can’t make this up right?!) I’ve only been here about a half-day so far but I find myself wanting to write more. This is a big deal after having been stuck for the last few days on my novel. 
So what changed? Well, in my case I changed locations. I’m not sitting in the same coffee shop I usually work in, sitting in the same place, drinking the same drink. I’m a creature of habit, okay :) If you’re at all like me, I’m willing to bet it’s time to shake things up a bit. Go to a new place. Instead of writing in Scrivener, write on actual paper. Instead of writing sitting down, try writing standing up. Maybe you’d like to splurge on a spiffy typewriter on eBay. (Yes, I totally did that a while ago. Here’s mine.) 
Now, let’s move on to the links to help you out….
