Where is your favorite place to write?

Kristan: Argh sorry I can't pick just one!

I really like writing at home, which is good because that's where I am the most. It's just comfortable, you know?

I also tend to get a lot done at airports and on planes, because other than boarding at the right time, there are almost no other demands on my energy or attention.

And then of course there's the strange appeal of writing in a totally unfamiliar and unexpected place. Like at a little café in small town Ireland, or on a subway in NYC. I get stimulated by my own isolation, my own foreign-ness in those situations. It's easy to slip into a world of my own making when I'm already someplace I don't really know.

Sarah: I get the most writing done when I'm sitting at a desk (I've moved mine around from the kitchen, the living room, dining room and my bedroom and now I don't have room for it anywhere) but my favourite place to write is when lounging on the couch. I'm so lazy!!

Stephanie: I love writing in coffee shops and dark work cubicles at the back of the library. It has to be quiet but not silent. I love writing in a place that makes me feel like a writer.

Ingrid: Usually I write at my desk in my office, but sometimes I'll bring my laptop to other rooms in my house... the living room in front of the fireplace, snuggled in bed, or the deck in the summertime. Overall I prefer to write at home rather than at a cafe or coffee shop, although I do venture out when I'm in a rut.

What about you? What is your favorite place to write?
