You might be an artist, you might be a gardener, you might be a mom, or run a business. But, if you are reading this, chances are, you are also a blogger. You are a writer.

Where do you get your inspiration? Do you have a place where you go to put the words together?

Oprah (www.oprah.com) recently featured 5 legendary writers and where their words came to life.

 

* Flannery O’Connor- “Good Country People”- her Georgia dairy farm, Andalusia Farm, inspired much of her stories.

* William Faulkner – “A Fable”- the text was shellacked like a wallpaper border to his bedroom wall – much to the consternation of his wife!

* Eudora Welty – “The Optimist’s Daughter”- wrote next to a window, seated at a simple table and typewriter, facing her secretary with its multitude of neat cubbyholes.

*Edgar Allan Poe – “The Black Cat” -his basement, eerie as you would expect it to be, perfectly replicated in his works.

*Edith Wharton -“House of Mirth”-her many works written in the morning, before even getting out of bed. Inspiration came from gazing out her window at a panoramic view of a manicured and gentile landscape.

 

Leave a comment – where do your thoughts come to life ? Is there a special spot in your home where thoughts flow, or is there just a pad by the bedside, or are random thoughts on scattered scraps of paper scribbled as they hit you?
