Where and how to find peace and quiet to write.

I’ve been asked a writer question: Where and how to find the peace and quiet to write?

There are two answers to this question.

The first answer is to create a space and a time in which you are guaranteed silence and no interruptions. If you are able to do this in your life and your home, good for you because not everyone is so fortunate.

If you can’t have physical peace and quiet to write then you can learn to write without either if writing is important enough to you to be worth the effort.

Western author, Louis L’Amour once said that he could write at the kitchen table with a hoard of noisy kids running around. I suspect that’s because he knew what he wanted to say and how to say it so well that he didn’t need a special place and time to bring it out.

If writing is important enough, you’ll figure out what works for you. External or internal.
