Where Do You Write?




Do you have a specific place in which you are most comfortable where you prefer to write? Is it an office, a dining room table, or a comfortable chair?

Or do you vary your locales? Do you ever go to a coffee shop or a diner to write? Personally, I like to change my writing areas, especially when working on first drafts, which I always compose by hand. I use a legal pad and pen, and I like to work in a wide variety of places.



Today, the weather is spectacular. It is a bit breezy and cooler than normal, which I love. My plan for writing today, therefore, is to find a nice outside table somewhere, perhaps at a park or a college campus, and I will do my work there.

My questions to all of you follow: do you write in only one place, or do you prefer to vary your spots?  Secondly, where are you writing today?
