AWAI Writing Challenge:
Where Do You Do Your Best Writing?
Hemingway did his best writing in Key West and Havana. Mark Twain was inspired by the Mississippi River in Hannibal, Missouri. Thoreau wrote from his simple cabin in the woods at Walden Pond. And Stephen King wrote "Carrie" and "Salem's Lot" in the laundry room of a rented trailer.
What about you? Where do you do your best writing? Is there some place special that inspires you? Your home office? A local coffee shop? A quiet corner of the public library? Perhaps it's a favorite vacation spot where you've written some great material?
Tell me about the place where you do your best writing and what makes it that way. Is it the location? The view? The solitude?
Send your 1,000 word (or less ) essay to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "I do my best writing … " in the subject line.
One winner will be selected from all entries received. If it's you, you'll receive a $100 American Express gift card and have your essay published on the AWAI website.
All entrants will be recognized and will be sent a special gift for participating.
Deadline: March 20, 2010
Look for the winning entry in the March 25th issue of Inside AWAI.
