Where do I write? Hmmmmm, well, sometimes . . .. . . in my office, music playing in the background.. . . on the couch in the Keeping Room (open area off the kitchne).. . . at the table in the breakfast nook so the boyz (Jesse and James - cocker spaniels) can see me from the sunroom. Trust me, if they can't see me, Jesse whines and disrupts my concentration.I normally try to write when my partner is either asleep or at work. If he's home, well, I could hide in the closet with the laptop and he'd find me so he could ask "what are you doing????" Arrrrrgghhhh!!!S
I have a corner of the living room where mu cupboard and computer are stationed, but I rarely write here - just edit. I write wherever I can! Kitchen table, in bed, at a cafe, in the spare bedroom. I think it's important not to have to be tethered to one spot to write.For me, if I hate to wait until I could write without interruption in my corner, I'd never write anything! So I can be creative anywhere, and that's a bonus for me.I have this dream of my ideal writing room with a big fancy desk and a beautiful leather chair, lots of book cases amd a window where I can see the sea!! Bit if I had that, would I write in there?Julie xx
I can write pretty much anywhere, as long as I can tune out people talking. For some reason if I can understand what they are saying, I'm immediately drawn into listening to what they are talking about, even if it is the most mundane topics. I always have my iPhone with me, so if people are talking near me, or it's too noisy, I put on my headphones, turn on some music, and write away.
Normally in my recliner, though, its about time to retire the recliner and get a new one. But, that's about it.
