“I can write anywhere,” he says. “In a plane or on a train or a boat. In a corner, with a screaming child in my lap. If you wait for the perfect place, you’ll never write anything.”
I wish I could properly tell you how much I love this quote, as an amateur writer, I’ve learned to write anywhere I find myself in. I’ve wrote a whole chapter for my novel in a hospital chair; I’ve wrote several poems on a taxi ride home, I’ve written or rather, thought short stories while waiting for job interviews.
So, I agree with the man, you just can’t wait for the perfect place nor the perfect moment. You just have to pull yourself by your bootstraps and write. Even if all you can write is just a few lines, do it. You never know where those lines will take you.
