Where Are the Best Spots in El Paso to Help Inspire You to Write
As a musician, it can be very difficult to write a song. Maybe it's hard finding the time to write or maybe it's lack of inspiration. Or maybe you just need to find the right spot to do it. Here are some locations around El Paso that might help you with your writing.
Despite being a very popular spot, it's popular for a reason: Once you're up over the city, the view is spectacular. There's plenty of seating areas where you can bask in the view, enjoy the air & be close to nature.
Downtown El Paso
I've lived around the city my whole life & there's something about all the cars & people walking around that calms me. Just walking around the historical buildings & museums, while observing all the history, it always make me wonder what El Paso must've been like back in the day. I reminisce & can get lost in my thoughts walking around.
Taking a drive out in the desert
Sometimes being around people can be much, especially if it's late at night or during the weekend. Maybe you need to be alone with your thoughts... & truly be with nature. Well thankfully living in the desert, there's plenty of nature all around us.
Walking on a trail
Hiking is another great way to get the creative juices flowing & get some exercise while you do it too. It's also another great way to enjoy nature. Thankfully there are plenty of trails in and around El Paso like Hueco Tanks or McKelligon Canyon.
Hang out with friends for inspiration
Having a night out with friends, whether it's at their house or in town, is another amazing way to be creative. Speaking from personal experience, sometimes just being around another person can inspire some great ideas. After all, they might feel the same way & need help writing too. I find going to the mall (Usually either The Fountains of Farah or Cielo Vista), getting a drink at Rubiks or a restaurant like Rulis' helps a lot.
Hopefully these are some helpful locations to help you with your writing; whether it be a song, or a book, a movie. You never know, what you write could end up winning an award...
