My writing space is currently on my laptop sat on my sofa. Not ideal at all, and I really would love to have a dedicated writing space. Right now, I’m in front of the TV which is often tuned in to some trashy TV which doesn’t require any thought when having it playing in the background. Not a very inspiring work space really. In fact I’m actually too embarrassed to post a photograph of it, but I will however post some photos of the soft of place I would love to work in. Perhaps once Penny gets a little older, I will be able to ascertain a small space somewhere in the flat to call my own, but for now I am stuck on the sofa.
Due to having a wee one, I have been quite limited when it comes to becoming a mobile writer. I am often tempted to pack up my laptop and go to a local coffee shop (even though the smell of coffee still turns my stomach a little since pregnancy). I think I will have to make a plan to visit some different places in order to be inspired the next time Penny goes out with her grandmother for the afternoon. I can travel pretty light, as I only really use my notebook, diary and laptop to work. As long as I have an internet connection, I can work pretty much anywhere.
Having children around means that I do not need silence to be able to write, however constant interruptions can be frustrating, especially if it involves me moving from my writing spot. I can find it very hard to get back in ‘the zone’ so to speak.
How would you change your work space? Do you think it makes a difference to your writing? Have you ever gone writing on the move? Where is your favourite place to write?
