From: For Winter Nights – A Bookish Blog
Guest post: Commute writing by Paul Fraser Collard, author of The Last Legionnaire is a really positive blog post.
Why do I highlight this? I hope all the posts on this blog are positive. Well, this one is special because it is not just about writing but how to write during what may be thought a creatively impossible situation – the daily commute. I strongly recommend it to you.
Let’s face it; the daily commute is a grind. You can use it to read, listen to music, watch a film or simply zone out and stare into space. You can, if you are so inclined, use it to do all that work you can’t get done in the office. All are very valid things to do and I do not denigrate any who choose these or any other option. But you can, if you wanted, use it to do something amazing. You can use this dead, unloved time, to write a novel.
