I’d love to be able to say that I can write anywhere, but I can’t. I find it a hard thing to do in public, so the scenes of my crimes are mostly unobserved. Within those parameters, I can write pretty much anywhere: at home, in someone else’s home, in a garden, a park, on a beach (yes, please), on a plane (which I do know is public . . . maybe it’s just that not many people can watch me at once, or you’re muffled – the noise of the plane cuts out the noise of the chatter).
There’s also something to do with time. Interruptions are fatal. It’s not so much that ideas or phrases are lost, it’s that I find it hard to be creative when I’m feeling irritated, and writing makes me pretty antisocial. That’s the problem with chatter – it’s distracting.
Having said that, it’s lonely too! So, if you can give me a pen, some paper and a bit of solitude for a couple of hours, I’ll come out smiling.
