>New Places, New Ideas

>Whenever I’m going out of town, I always pick one or two writing-related things that I want to work out. For example, a new short story idea, a name for a fictitious town, or the solution to a plot problem. I tell myself beforehand that these are the things I want to discover or figure out, and usually I do. By making your subconscious aware of what it needs to work on, you can become more aware of surroundings and possibilities. New environments and new experiences feed your creativity, and may give you exactly what you need. A little physical distance can do wonders. Give this technique a whirl next time you’re heading out of town.
