This week on the blog hop, I'm asking the question! I'm asking my Romance Writers Weekly pals:
Describe our perfect writing space/retreat. Do you need hustle and bustle or peace and quiet? Coffee shop or secluded cabin?
When I think of my perfect writing retreat, the first image that comes to mind is a small cabin on the shores of a lake with a mountain view. As I live in Northern British Columbia, I wouldn't even have to go that far to find it! I love to write outside, and there's something about the sound of water that I find soothing yet inspiring. I'd make myself a cup of coffee and sit on the porch, and just let the creativity flow.
The only problem with that idyllic scene is that it is so opposite to where I normally write that I'm not sure if I'd still be able to get my job done. Normally I write with in my living room with family life going on around me. So having only peace and quiet and no distractions may actually prove to be a distraction!
I wonder what Leslie dream writing retreat would be? Find out when you hop to her blog here!

The combination of coffee and quiet is magical, at least for me. I'm so easily distracted.

I've worked in a "bullpen" for so long I can tune out almost anything!

A cabin on the shores of a lake would be great! I agree with you, having a little noise around sometimes helps.

Writing is so solitary that it's nice to feel a part of things even when you're not. :)
