Do you have a home office? Do you work from cafes? Do you chill on the sofa in your PJs?
Mine seems to alternate. My best ideas seem to come when I’m in a café having a cup of tea & letting my mind drift. But I’ve never tried actually working in a coffee shop. I see lots of other people there with their laptops, but I don’t know whether that would work for me.
A notepad & pen for doodling & writing ideas down, yes. Lugging my laptop around? Maybe not.
