Writers and Ivory Towers

Sometimes writers crave isolation – peace and quiet to work undisturbed – but I often find my best insights come from interaction with lots of people and places. While I may secretly long for an ivory tower, it is only by constantly exposing myself to a variety of situations that new ideas flow freely. A movie, a church service, dinner with friends, a walk in the woods, shopping, or listening to music can suddenly help me to see my work from a completely different perspective. A day filled with lots of different activites sends me diving for my computer with my mind overflowing with new possibilities!
