Where's a Good Place to Write?

Do you have a special place you like to write?
For me, writing takes place in our dining/family room of our town home. (Yes, the walls are very bright but keep in mind Minnesota is very dark during the winter months. I need something to keep me going during the evil, cold seasons.) It's not the most ideal place but it does the trick.

My goal for us is to one day buy a house with a nice backyard, an apple tree, a wrap-around porch, a ginormous garden area, a wooded area and enough room in the house where I can have an entire office area (with a huge window) to myself. I wouldn't mind a little creek trickling in the backyard either...

Where I write in our home
Does that seem like too much to ask? Ha!

For now I must settle on sharing a "creative" room with my hubs. He does have his own man cave, but since April, his special man room is packed with boxes and stuff from his town home (our buyers close on that July 29 and we'll be down to one town home). So I can't say he spends a ton of time down there since there isn't much room.

Another goal is to spend more time in coffee shops during the day writing, but that's a challenge with a 30+ minute commute, a full-time Marketing career and a busy lifestyle. I love people watching, but it also distracts me from writing. I guess it's better I stick with writing at home.

So I'm going to go with option #1 and I'll let you know when I get there. 

Where are you writing right now? If money wasn't an issue, where would you like to write? 


There is a beautiful internet cafe near my apartment where I love writing. I would be perfect if I didn't have to buy an item from their coffee shop to use their internet. That adds up! If money were not an issue, I would go there more often.

I also love the regional library. It's quiet, they have lots of desks to use. Best of all, it's a 30-minute walk from my place, so I have a nice walk to clear my head before I begin writing.

I really like your dining room nook and that yellowy/gray combo. It looks like a good writing area with little distraction. Congratulations on the new home!

I have an old beat up blue swivel rocker in the combination library/exercise/hamshack that's quite comfortable for both reading and writing in spite of the tight quarters. Thankfully, my thoughts don't take up a lot of space.
