It’s September already! Can you believe it? While I certainly love the freedom of summer, there is something to be said to getting back into the routine. And part of that routine will be better attendance on the Romance Writers Weekly Blog! This week, we start with a subject supplied by A.S. Fenichel:
Lordy, it’s hot! I still really like to write outdoors if I can. What’s your favorite place to tackle your daily writing goal? Describe it and tell us what makes it work for you.
It might be hot where Andrea is, but In Northern BC we had a cool and rainy summer. Also, Labour Day Weekend in the unofficial end of summer, and while we can still have lovely, sunny weather, the sun loses much of its intensity so the evenings cool down quickly.
That being said, however, I definitely agree with Andrea, as I love to write outdoors, too. There's something about the fresh air and open atmosphere that helps get the words on the page. But the place I get the most work done, though, is my living room. Since I have to do my writing in the evening, I started doing so in the living room because at least there I was available to my family if they wanted me. Now they are all grown, it is still my usual place, and where I’ve put in the most words over the years. Even if I did have a writing office, I’m not sure I would work there all the time.
Andrea asked us to describe our writing place, but I thought it might be better to show you, so I went back through the archives and dug up a few photos. Enjoy! Then be sure to hop over to A.S. Fenichel to discover her favourite place to write.
