One of the questions that I get asked a lot is where do I write? I would love to explain that I have this beautiful desk with a tiffany style lamp and a comfy chair. I would love to tell you that my view is a vista view of gardens and that on sunny days the scent wafts through the open windows. But all that would be a lie.
I don't actually have a desk at all. I do have a laptop that travels with me back and forth to the school where I work. It has files on there from older writings as well as copies of my recently released stories. Usually when I come home from work, I sit at the kitchen island because if I have to get up (and I do) than the dogs can't climb up and mess with my things or eat my food. I used to sit more at the kitchen dining table but after too many times that the dogs grabbed my plate, I decided to move.
However, the dogs do like to entice me to write with them while they lay on the couch next to me. The photo from above is of me sitting on the couch with my labtop on my lap and a dog trying to get closer to me. My two dogs are small in size but big in needing attention. They both know how to beg and love to get my attention but will quickly settle down and sleep as long as I don't get back up. It does get to be quite comfy together and is a wonderful place to write. I couldn't ask for better critique partners or maybe foot warmers!
Where do you enjoy writing? What things must be in place for you to write?
