This is why some authors choose to go into seclusion to write their book and come out only after they’re done. While it is not possible for all of us to head to a remote place to write, there are loads of alternate places around us that could rekindle the spark of writing and even fetch us ideas. No, I’m not mentioning coffee shops in the list as it has become too normal for any writer to head to a nearby coffee chain and pen down his thoughts. We’re talking about something better. Check them out.


One of the quietest places you would find amidst a buzzing city, library is where you’ll be least distracted. The silence would allow you to concentrate more on your writing and pen down more words every day. What’s the added advantage? With tons of books around you, research for your book becomes a piece of cake.


Beach has always been a favorite spot for readers. As an author, you can make the most of the location as well. The vastness of the ocean in front of you and the soothing sound of the waves in loop would inspire you more to pen down your masterpiece.

A Shopping Complex

Best if you are writing a fiction. As you know, malls are constantly flocked by people, and of course, of various kinds. Sitting in the food court of a mall, you could listen a little to people’s conversation and get ideas on writing one in your book. Plus, you are so likely to encounter strange people that you might get inspiration for a new character for your book.

A Bookstore

Looking for some inspiration to get your book published? Head to a bookstore and write there. With so many published books around you and the sight of people picking one from the book shelves, you would psychologically, get that inspiration to write better.


Color psychology tells us that green is a color that relaxes our mind and body, restores depleting energy, and signifies growth. And where else would you be surrounded by greenery other than the parks in your city? In the evening during sunset or mornings when people jog, parks are indeed a good place to get your pen and paper to write your book.

Your Room

Perhaps the coziest place in the world, your room is where everything begins; like your journey toward becoming an author. Many people I’ve known who love their room and their bed, specifically, have shared that they write better when they’re in their pajamas on their bed. Maybe you would find it the best place to write your book as well.

Now, the places mentioned here may not work for everyone and you may have your preferred place to write; at the end of the day, the focus lies in meeting the word count and writing what we intended to. So discover your place and begin writing.
