A Picnic to Pique Your Creativity
Don't let the lazy days of summer prevent you from reaching your goal of publishing. Make sure to find some time in between vacations and summer concerts to work on your manuscript. Especially since Archway Publishing is offering writers the opportunity to save up to $2,800 on publishing.*
For you, maybe that means welcoming a change of scenery and writing outside. Just as well, we've put together a list of essentials when it comes to an outdoor writing session.
10 Essentials for a Writer's Picnic
- Camera – Your routine keeps you productive, but a change of scenery can be inspiring. Snap some pictures of what you see so you can write about it later.
- Sunglasses – You'll be writing during your picnic. Have you ever seen the harsh glare that white paper casts? Protect your eyes.
- Paper – A blank computer screen is discouraging. Writing your thoughts on paper might get you thinking in new ways.
- Water – Despite the summer heat, you might not want to stop once you start writing outside. Water is essential for long outdoor sessions.
- Pen/Pencil – Don't underestimate the importance of a good writing utensil; you won't get very far in your writing if you're not prepared.
- Blanket – What's a picnic without a red gingham blanket?
- Food – Stimulate your palate with a few culinary delights. Summery salads made with corn, avocados, beans and lime-cilantro vinaigrette are healthy and easy to carry on a picnic.
- Field guide – Take a break from your writing picnic to go for a hike. A field guide will help you identify interesting plants, critters and rocks that catch your eye.
- Flashlight – Your head is down. You're writing with energy and focus. Before you know it, you look up and the sun is setting. Be prepared.
- Pocket money – After a day of writing in the sun, stop for a cold treat before you head home – you've earned it.
