I met a friend at a café to write today. I always forget how it helps the flow to write with someone else who is writing too. Usually the noise at cafés makes it so hard for me to focus. I get distracted by the coffee machines and the conversations. But today, writing with a friend, it was like her focus was contagious, and I was able to sink into the writing, while the sounds around me became a blur of white noise that didn't bother me one bit. I usually need silence to write. Today I started thinking maybe that silence is a mindset. And maybe I can create it in ways other than real, actual absence of sound. Something new to experiment with anyway!
