It's sort of a silly question, but I'm curious about where other authors write. I know a few very famous authors who have little cottages detached from their houses with no distractions whatsoever. I would LOVE that. I have a friend who told me the other day that when it's warm, she writes in her gazebo. That, too, makes me a bit jealous. I've never thought of writing outside, but I could see the benefit, as long as it was quiet.
I write in my living room, sitting on the couch, leaning over my laptop...and it's not ideal. But it's become a habit. So much so that I've never stepped foot in the spare room that i spent a month converting to a writing studio, complete with a writing desk, bookshelves and file cabinets. I had good intentions, but you know what they say about those and the road to hell. I have to have complete silence. No TV, no music, no talking and nothing going on around me, which makes my chosen writing location less than optimal. But for some reason, I just can't break the habit. It's where I've written for four years. And habits (good and bad) are hard to break.
Someone on #amwriting just asked who listens to music while writing. I have no idea how people can do that, but I know lots who do. Some people find music inspiring. I find it to be a distraction.
Really, there's no right or wrong answer here. You just need to create an environment that works for you-whether it's an office, a gazebo, your bedroom, or the living room. Whatever works for you and creates an inspirational mood.
Short post this week, but I was just thinking about it. Trying to will myself to go use my new office. I don't know if I can do it, but I think I'm going to give it a try.
