Where do you write?
I’ve posted before about my tiny writing office, which, I must confess, currently needs a major clean up. Today, though, I’d love to hear about where you write when you’re not in your usual space.
I am actually writing this post on my laptop while waiting in my van. In a few minutes, I’ll pop into school and take my son to his eye appointment. This morning I did some revision work in this same parking lot before doing some volunteer work on campus.
…and here comes the custodian. Hi, Miss Virginia!
For years, I kept a weekly writing date at Brownstone Café in Battle Creek, Michigan. I was so particular about writing on the left side of a specific couch that when I met a friend for coffee there over Thanksgiving break, a man jumped out of “my” spot and offered it to me!
I’ll write at the hairdresser. I’ve taken my laptop to piano lessons. During Hurricane Gustav, I wrote on battery power in the dark (it was a blizzard scene in MAY B., and I can never read that section without remembering the wind, rain, and damp, dark heat of a hurricane).
What odd spaces have you used for your writing?
