Writing On A Plane?

Every successful writer has his or her favourite place to write. A place where their mind opens up and they feel the surge of creativity oozing out of EVERY orifice.

This sacred place may be in a library, the corner of a small coffee shop or in a countryside cottage. As for me, your inspirational teacher, I like to write on an aeroplane flying at 35,000 feet.

A picture of some writing that someone has done on a plane.

This may be difficult for some of you due to time constraints and cost but I have no concerns with time and money so five times a week I fly six hours every day to Serbia and back. If you want to try to write on a plane every day here are my tips;

  1. Take a pencil on the plane with you.
  2. REMEMBER pens leak.
  3. But also REMEMBER that pencils can break and you can’t sharpen pencils on a plane because you are not allowed sharp objects on planes.
  4. Take two pencils on the plane.
  5. If both pencils break ask a flight attendant if they have a writing implement.
  6. Take some paper with you. I prefer white paper but any colour will work.
  7. If you don’t have paper you can use a piece of wood or your arm.
  8. Drink some water occasionally.
  9. If both pencils have broken and your pen has leaked and the flight attendants don’t have any writing implements have a sleep.

And that’s it. Best of luck with your novel.
