Writing in parks


Stadtpark, Vienna–a lovely place to write!

Stadtpark in Vienna is a lovely place to relax. Passing through today, I took this photo of people enjoying one of the last warm days of the year.

If you happen to be in Vienna, you might like to grab a notebook and pen and find a grassy patch or park bench and get writing. Parks and gardens–with their natural beauty–can stir feelings of well-being and happiness. I often see people writing in Stadtpark–soaking up the restful atmosphere, quieting their discursive thoughts, tapping into those deeper feelings and thoughts. Such is the wonderful nature of creative writing–it’s a journey into the heart.

If you do join me for a creative writing boot camp, you can be sure I’ll be encouraging you to seek out such places for a special writing experience!
