I just returned from a brief trip to Europe and it was my first time in a really long time I wrote anything away from my desk. I had forgotten how wonderful it is to write in a completely new place or to revisit a favorite writing spot.
For me, just stepping into a new writing environment adds a dose of freshness to my thoughts and perspective. It's kind of exciting. My sense of observation kicks into high gear and well the other senses do, too. Whether I'm working on an existing project or something new, I believe the writing benefits.

Have you tried writing outside of your usual writing zone? Do you have a favorite spot outside of your "office" to write? If so, please share in the comments below. If not, give it a try. The new location doesn't have to be far from home or extravagant, it only needs to be different than your regular place. It can even be another room of your house—or literally outside, in your backyard or balcony. Maybe this is the type of change-up you need once in a while, too.
