Where you write affects how great your essays, novels or articles will be. That is why many writers prefer writing in places where they are comfortable at. Virginia Woolf insisted that every write should have a room of their own, while Stephen King suggests writers to write in a room with no telephone, television and other distractions.
While it is intuitive to write your masterpiece in a place where you don’t have anyone or anything to distract you, it can be confining and boring. Many writers like J.K. Rowling, believes that writing in places like cafe gives you time to be inspired and comfortable to write. You can take a break if you want and return to writing afterwards.
Of course, you do not have to limit yourself to cafe’s. There are so many travel destinations, helpful for writing your novel and making you inspired, that you can explore. Here are the perfect places, every writer should visit.
