Friday Read and Write

Where do you write? This topic came up in October's issue of Writer's Digest.  Places that famous authors have written...?

1. While walking... yes I have
2. Favorite Chair... always
3. On Horseback... I have never ridden a horse so this one is out for me.
4. Out in nature... always
5. On the train... yes
6. Bathtub... yes, but never with the computer.
7. In the car... yes
8. In Bed... yes, but it isn't very efficient.  I tend to fall asleep.
9. In a Coffin... Call me silly but I just don't have one of those hanging around right now.
10. In your birthday suit... I have three teens and one pre-teen that would be scarred for life if I did this.

Today I'm feeling very J.K. Rowling-ish. I'm sitting in a downtown Grand Rapids Biggby Coffee writing because I have two hours to kill while City daughter is at her drama class at the Civic Theatre.  I also spent time writing in the back of the car today while my son was in his guitar lesson.

I do have an "official" writing desk.  It's in the basement.  I rarely use it.  I prefer to settle where I can hear if war erupts with any of the children.  Also if I'm out of sight for too long they come searching for me.  I am loved, or at least needed to find things, serve things, cook things and be shown the latest in Lego creations.
Comfy place to sleep... er... write
Backyard under the trees so I can see the computer screen

 Picnic table on the back deck if shaded
 Husband's fly tying desk in the family room. Shhh.... don't tell him.
 My chair when not occupied by teens
 Dining room table
Kitchen island

My downstairs "desk"
I love writing here but not with the computer.   Also it's kinda like the basement, too far away if war erupts.
Leave me a comment and let me know where you do your writing!

I have gotten in the habit of taking a notebook with me wherever I go. When I feel the call to write (whatever form that feeling comes in) I write. The dining room table, the couch, my bed, the bench at the park, a table at a coffee shop, the library. Even when I am reading, I will stop to write if something comes to me. When I read the bible, I have my notebook and pen in hand.
