Tell us about your writing space. Where do you write your blog posts?
If I’m home during the day and there aren’t a thousand other things vying for my attention, I take time to actually sit down at my desk in the upstairs office to write. When I’m here, I am usually surrounded by silence–which, depending on the day, may or may not have a beneficial effect upon my concentration. My desk is rarely this uncluttered, so writing up here often gets interrupted by filing, shredding, phone calls, emails, balancing the checkbook, organizing the pen jar…
When I’ve been too busy or too lazy to write during the day, I usually end up downstairs on the couch in the evening, banging away on my laptop while the hubby watches TV and reads the paper. More distractions here, but since some days it takes me a couple hours to spit out a hundred words, I hate to lose that time with him. (Although maybe he’d rather I just go upstairs and write what I’ve got to write than snipe at him when he asks a question in the middle of me nearly…almost…just about…damn, lost it…stringing together a coherent sentence.)
