When talking about writing, we often focus on storytelling components, such as character, setting, conflict, and dialogue. What you write is very important. Where you write is important, too. I have a perfectly good office, complete with large desk and comfy chair. However, I love sitting in my dining area. Why? Because the front of the house has more light. Also, the TV is in the living room, and I like to play movies as background noise. And of course, I’m closer to the kitchen--where my coffee pot is located! Sometimes, I head to a coffee shop where I can indulge in my two loves: writing and coffee drinking. Like my favorite spot at home, the coffee shop gives me the noise I need to get focused and to start writing.
Where do you like to write? Why?
----- Writing in 140 is my attempt to say something somewhat relevant about writing in 140 words or less.
