Where is your spot?

The one thing that is so important to me when I pick up my pen–my keyboard that is–is being comfortable and relaxed. I have to get mentally into my writing, and the best way for me to do that is to be in my spot–my writing spot. My writing spots are the few favorite spots that I feel most creative and excited about writing. I have three: The first is my screen porch, the second is the local coffee house, and the third is my desk that is in my master bedroom.

Each of these spots has a different role in my life as a writer. The screen porch is my fair weather spot. The porch puts me close to my bird feeders; the view is overlooking an old farm, and I just love the warm days when I can get on the porch and write. The Coffeehouse is one of my favorites when I have writers block. For some reason, and we all differ, I feel excited and more creative when I am at the coffee house. It has big comfy sofa’s, it’s dimly lighted, and of course–they have excellent coffee. I see lot’s of strange and interesting people coming in and out of the coffee house, and it gets my creative juices flowing.

The desk in my room is my spot for when I am in the mood to do some intense writing when I am most inspired, and I don`t want to be distracted. We writers are finicky people, to say the least, and we have to have our spot. Do you have a spot? If so, share it with us–William

He and his family enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains where they live—especially their screened in back porch where they love to bird watch. - "I love realism. I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul. I love to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~Scott Biddulph~
