The ideal view for daily writing, hour on hour, is the blank brick wall of a cold-storage warehouse. Failing this, a stretch of sky will do cloudless if possible.
~ Edna Ferber
Edna Ferber was called "the greatest American woman novelist of her day" and I'm guessing by this quote it was her habit to write daily. I like finding out about these women who wrote and were successful at a time that women were told their names should only be in print three times announcements of their birth, marriage and death.
For your writing today, take a notebook and go outside. While I can't guarantee a cloudless sky I do know a change in scenery might spark your writing. Write for 30 minutes...and then read this short biography about Edna Ferber. Now get back to work.
