Have latptop, will travel...



Where do I write? Anywhere and everywhere. When I used to write on a desktop computer only, I felt so confined. I still write quite a bit on my desktop computer at the office where I work part time. But the majority of my writing these days is done on my laptop.

My laptop and I have become great friends. (Okay, most of the time we're friends.) We like to find a comfy corner in my livingroom and curl up together in my oversized chair to spend some quality time together. Sometimes we take a road trip and find a spot to share time in Panera Bread or Barnes & Noble. When the weather is nice, we like to spend time outside on my patio on a comfortable chaise lounge. Or maybe we will mosey over to Botanica and find a bench somewhere to enjoy the views and quiet time in the gardens. We even work well together in an airport restaurant or a semi-secluded spot in a gate area.

The photo I've included is from my comfy chair in my livingroom. I can sit there and let my fingers fly willy-nilly over the keyboard. And I can occasionally glance up and see the exercise bicycle that someday I'll actually use. Right now I mainly move it around and dust it off. I don't want to get crazy with the idea of exercise. If I wear myself out exercising, I'll be too tired to write. Right? Right.

Thanks for sharing, Starla. I have to admit, my "writing area" is where I feel like writing at the time. Sometimes, in my office, others in my bedroom with my laptop or even going to Barnes and Noble.

Laptops have freed us from the chain to the desktop. I'm writing this from the love seat in the living room where I write in the evening. Road trips are great at any time and you make good use of all your time. Your an inspiration, Starla.

Starla, you're one step ahead of me. Okay, two steps. I don't have a full-size laptop, only a small netbook that I don't use much and is often borrowed by one family member or another. The second step is is the exercise bicycle. I bought a treadmill almost 2 years ago. It's still in the box.

Roxann, I believe that the box is a good place for your treadmill. You need to let it "age" more before you bring it out into the world. No rush.

Starla, you are the most productive writer I know. You are an inspiration to the rest of us!
