I have been nominated by Charles Yallowitz over at Legends of Windemere to write a post discussing my writing “workplace.”
The truth is, my workplace is constantly migrating.
We have an official office/library, and I do like to work there when all other life circumstances permit, which isn’t very often. The office/library is on the second floor, and the kids are always in their rooms or living room on the first floor or in the school room or play room in the basement. Being 1-2 floors away from them – particularly the two year olds – isn’t the best plan.
For the last several months, I’ve commonly worked at the dining room table (not the most comfortable chairs) or on the leather sectional in the living room (waaaay too comfortable).
But two weeks ago, when I started setting up the school room for the kids, I decided to give myself a more official work space. Here it is…
No, your eyes do not deceive you; there are, in fact, both a coffee cup (yes, it has coffee in it) and a cup with Coke Zero in it. Because this doubles as my “teacher” desk, I tend to need a LOT of caffeine while sitting at it.
Just for fun, here is a picture of the view out my window…
I particularly like this view when it is raining, which it has been doing a lot of lately.
I don’t get a ton of inspiration from any of my writing spaces, but I probably get the most from this one, just thanks to the view. I tend to keep my eyes and ears open for inspiration when I’m out and about. I also draw quite a bit of inspiration from music, so I try to have something playing in the background while I write.

Writers, show us your spaces! And give me a pingback so I can come see yours!
