My writing space is usually anywhere in my house that I can get comfortable. Most of the time that means on the couch in my living room. I do the bulk of my writing on my laptop, occasionally on my iPad, and seldom on my phone. However, I have the WordPress app on both my iPad and iPhone in case I need to create a draft for a post idea or make a quick post. When I write, I typically have the tv going in the background or I’m carrying on a conversation with my husband. Since having my son, this has changed a little, because I’m having to cater to his needs. Fortunately, but unfortunately he sleeps during the day, so that’s my prime for writing.
You may think why I wouldn’t choose a quite, serene space away from everything and everyone. Well the thing is that I just don’t operate that way. I like noise, light, and at least someone around at all times. While I do enjoy alone time, I’d rather have some around, even if I’m busy. I’m the ultimate multi-tasker that way. I like to be stimulated visually and verbally, and on my couch in front of the tv, looking out my windows into the Virginia Highlands treeline behind my house does just that for me.
So of my best ideas come from what’s on the tv, a conversation with my husband, or gazing out of my living room windows. I have a little bit of nature, some human interaction, and some entertainment value all in my writing space. Its simply what works for me. – What works for you? Do you have a dedicated writing space or alone space that you go to in order to get your thoughts out?
