My very favorite place to write happens to be outside. In nature. Doesn’t matter so much where as long as its beautiful. In the Winter, its a lot harder for me to write anywhere outside because it is just too cold. So, instead I make myself nice and comfy on my sofa, grab a cup of coffee and put my laptop on my lap and go to town.
Well, with the great big family I have, my taking over the couch doesn’t always work, so sometimes I don’t get the space I need to spread out, which can seriously limit how much time I get to write AND how productive I am.
With our income tax check on the way, we decided to shop around yesterday for sectionals – which we desperately need with 7 people. The one pictured is the one we are ordering, and now we have to go find an ice blue paint to do the living room. What’s awesome about this sectional, is that it has that extra piece on the end… guess who gets it? Yep… mom. It allows me to stretch out when I want to, but also to just use it to set my laptop. I’m so excited!
I will totally take over that part of the couch, keep my writing gear and books close by and be totally satisfied… until the sun is shining again and its warm and I can get back outside to write and not freeze.
I used to have a writing office in my old house, for four years I have had to live with a small sofa that the kids all want to pile on at the same time. I cannot wait to be able to spread out and not shut the kids out at the same time.
