At the Library

creative perspectivesI took some of my own advice today. I changed locations to focus on my creative work. I walked over to the local library, and amidst some curious looks from the librarians and child patrons, plopped myself at the reference table and spent several quiet and productive hours poring over books and maps.

I am positive that if I’d tried to do the same amount of work at my office desk with its myriad distractions (all bundled into one tidy computer), I would have failed. But now I have a sense of having progressed on my latest idea, even though it is still in the early stages of planning and deciding. I’m excited about it and hope that in the coming weeks I’ll be able to tell you more about what I hope to be doing over the winter months.

there’s nothing like working in a library to remind you of the massive shortcomings of computers. they are good for many things, but helping you think is not one of them, that’s for sure.
