WRITING TIP: Shake up your writing location

writing tipWhile it can be helpful and grounding to have a dedicated place to write, there is also value in moving from place to place during different phases of the work, particularly if you find yourself blocked. It pays to experiment and watch the effects. I know one writer who extends his ability to stay with a piece for a longer period by moving from cafe to cafe every hour or so. The movement between places gives the piece time to cook, and the new setting gives him a sense of starting fresh again.
