For large chunks of my childhood and young adulthood, I kept a journal at my bedside. My writings were always done in pencil, not so much to correct mistakes, although that happened, on occasion, but more because I was certain these writings would become valuable to my descendants, therefore needed protection from water damage. Silly me.
Thanks to the invention of laptops, my writing has mostly turned into typing, and occurs any place I can sit, alone. It doesn’t need to be quiet but I do need to be undisturbed. My husband will verify that I am not very pleasant when my thought flow is interrupted. My favorite places to write are on the couch, bed, or patio; lounging with knees bent or feet propped up. Cozy places; that’s where I like to write. The ambiance of a coffee shop is appealing, especially if they have a couch or large chair with footrest, or small table. Apparently, my feet need to be elevated as a prerequisite to writing. I do have a desk; a very nice desk, yet I don’t use it unless I’m doing unpleasant things, like paying bills. For me, writing is pleasure and lounging is pleasure, therefore it’s only natural to incorporate the two.
