The posts I've written asking about how we do things have been some of my very favorites to hear everyone's responses on! I love to see the things we do things the same and the things we do things differently. And a lot of times in the comments, people say really cool ways to do things that I had never thought of before! So I thought I'd make the Way We Are feature more of a weekly Wednesday one, instead of an occasional Wednesday one.
This week, what I'm curious about is where we write.
For me, I edit best at my desktop computer. I love the big screen, the ergo keyboard, my mouse, and space to spread out notes.
As far as drafting, though, I use my mini laptop, and go anywhere other than my desk. I use my desktop for so many things that when I sit down there, my mind isn't always in write-mode. My mini laptop, though, gets used ONLY for writing. If it's in my hands, I'm ready to go. I write at the kitchen table, in the yard, at a neighborhood mom & pop fast food establishment I've loved since childhood, at the library, at the park, or in some location that reminds me of my WIP's setting.
Curious minds want to know how similar our writing spaces are. Where do you write?
In a nice, organized office space?
On the couch?
On the couch?
In a cluttered office?
In a corner of your house?
With your cat trying to sit on your keyboard?
Child on your lap, trying to press extra keys?
Dog at your feet?
At a cafe?
In a cozy nook at a library?
In a secret, secluded place?
At the beach?
By a river?
In the mountains?
Or hiding out somewhere, hoping you won't be found?
If I got to choose out of those pictures on the right which place I wanted to write (assuming it was near my house, so I didn't have to spend all my writing time traveling), I'd choose the beach. Or the mountains. Or that cottage all nestled away amongst the trees. Or even the outdoor cafe. Ooo. Or in the big library.
Tell us. Where do you usually write? And if you could choose, where do you WANT to write?
