I had a spectacular #MobileEditing office today! I set myself up at the Rady Shell at San Diego Bay during the San Diego Symphony’s open rehearsals. I edited a picture book AND revised two chapters of my own WIP.
I know some folks would be distracted by the glorious music that swirled around me. I get that. But for me, when I’m doing creative work, music becomes a part of my state of mind, not a distraction. I feel immersed in the music, blissfully creative and productive.
Being outside, with that view and on such a gorgeous, fresh day, only enhanced my creative spirit. I’ve discovered that I enjoy being outside when I write or edit. I can’t think of a more wonderful #MobileEditing office than the one I had today. Utter delight.
About the Rady Shell: “Years in the making, The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park is the soaring culmination of a long-time civic desire to have a state of the art concert venue that elevates the experience of live music while also serving as a public center for all of San Diego… Besides the visual splendor of the natural setting by the bay and the architectural drama that is The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park itself patrons find comfortable seating either in table settings up close, rows of seating in mid-range and lawn seating at the top of the Skyline Terrace. https://www.theshell.org/about/venue/
