As many of you know, I have had the privilege of interviewing some very talented authors on my blog (gridirongrannyfootballfanatic.blogspot.com). One of the questions I ask is, “Where would be your dream location for writing?”
Yesterday, while I was in the shower preparing for a family outing with my husband and dad, I do what I usually do…pray. The solitude and water flowing frees me from all distractions, unclutters the mind and allows me to focus on God. Following my conversations with Him has always been a time of inspiration for me. Unfortunately, by the time I dry off, get dressed and start the day, those inspirational thoughts that could be used in a current or future book slip away in the chaos of life.
With that in mind, a funny thought popped into my head … if only my laptop were waterproof.
I wouldn’t lose the inspiration … the words would flow as freely as the water.
Yep, that’s how my brain works. I even thought about designing something for shower use, until I realized that even if I could, I’d be rudely catapulted out of the inspirational mode as the water turned shockingly cold. Not only that, the water bill would skyrocket and with the drought in Southern California, I would probably be fined for overuse.
There’s always a bath……
