"Hi! I've been reading Charles Schulz, the creator of Peanuts, words about creativity.
[CARTOON INSERTED HERE]
There are a couple of things I want to share with you that he had to say:
"Surroundings place a definite role in my kind of creativity.
I have found from experience that it is best to work in one single place and have a single routine.
The beauty of the surroundings is not necessarily important.
In fact, I feel more comfortable in a small, plain room than I do in a fancy studio."
Now, I don't know that I can do what Charles did in his way, but I don't do what Charles did, either. I'm not a cartoonist.
(Although there are times I tried and a lot of times I wish I could.)
But being able to do what I do, in the place I do, is the thing that helps me do it.
And I encourage you to find what he's looking for: to find that simplicity and do it where YOU do it."
