Where do you write and when?
I like to write in an open area that is relatively uncluttered. Anything out of place distracts and bothers me and keeps me from getting into the "zone."
Coffee shops, though cliche, work great for me! There s nothing to distract me and I can focus! Plus, there is something magical about the aroma of freshly ground and brewed coffee!
Another thing that usually ends in failure to launch for me is trying to write lying down, like on my bed, because I get way too comfortable and kind of start to doze off, or at least get tired...
I am a major night owl and prefer to write at night, when everyone else is in bed and everything is QUIET! (Which RARELY happens when you have 4 small children!)
Plus, it helps to have a buddy to write with- that way you don't feel like you are missing out on something! My wife likes to write as well, she actually got me into writing, so that works well. Plus, I am always looking for friends to meet at a coffee shop to write with... makes it FUN!
As for when? For me, writing is kind of a reward for myself, something to look forward to... I haven't gotten to the point where I have a really disciplined time-schedule yet; I am just writing for fun. If I ever am able to write for a living, which is every writer's dream, I will HAPPILY put myself on a more regimented schedule. Actually, one of my new year's resolutions is to get more disciplined with my writing...
How about YOU? Where and when do you write?
