Space and lighting are excellent conductors of creativity. So are deadlines and solitude but a good space with the right light can do wonders.
I remember my time in that shoebox, how uncomfortable it was to write in. In this modest apartment I’m in now, the practice of writing flows more but the place lacks the necessary lighting to make creativity pour out. So I’ve set it up with nice furnishings, lamp lighting, plants and music to get that right atmosphere.
The bigger the size of a space the better it can conduct an orchestra of creativity. There’s something about having enough room to breathe that can help you breathe life into your stories. But even when the size of the space you’re in is modest, atmosphere sparks what space cannot.
I wonder what would happen if I put in a mirror.
