    Well, I just found out that a project for work fell through because of lack of funding (what else is new? lol).

    That being said, I am also officially done with my classes for the semester (YAY!) and have TONS of free time on my hands! I have a lot of catching up to do as I haven't published very many hubs the last few days because of finals; I got a little burnt out. (One final was 8 essay questions and one major essay...I had to write 15 freaking pages by hand in 3 hours!)

    I thought it might be fun to write somewhere tomorrow other than my house.

    Where are some places that you like to write? Inspire me!!!

        lol it was so painful; I literally had a weird numb yet shooting pain from my elbow to the top of my fingers. I NEVER write by hand, especially that much. I type everything, even notes.

        I told my prof that he probably wouldn't be able to read it all, but it was really good. wink

      Reminds me of my A levels - we had 3 or 4 3-hour long papers in each subject, and 3 of mine were really close together - I had a 3 hour English Lit (Shakespeare paper) one afternoon, a 3 hour History (mid-Tudor crisis, 1540 to 1560) paper the next morning, and a 3 hour Geography (glaciation, peri-glaciation, and plate tectonics) that same afternoon. Nearly killed me (-: Fortunately, the other 8 papers were a little more spread out.

    I like to write in my gardens. The fresh air and fragances are inspiring. If I get writers block I take a break and work in the garden. Actually I do not consider it work as I get lost in thought - daydream if you will.

    Art museums!

    I find they are good for inspiration, particularly for poetry though. Really it depends on your interests (which are obviously quite varied).

    Gosh, I need to try your popovers recipe, by the way! Been looking for a good one!

      That would be a really fun place to write....very good idea! There are a few around here that could definitely be inspirational.

      Let me know how you like the popovers, they're so easy and good! smile My mom told me she made them the other day but forgot she was out of milk by the time she had put the egg and flour in the blender lol. She used water, instead, and apparently they weren't too bad. So basic, yet delicious.

    I do all of my writing in my library where I am alone with my Parrot and a pup or two and my many books and some art work. I can write any place, but this is my spot where I can be most creative, it is my room, my space.

    Next to the river, on my phone or laptop..  that or on the John.. it's where all the deep thinking is done anyway..  LOL

    On your phone? lol I love my blackberry but couldn't write too much stuff on there. (I do use it for writing down an idea for a hub if I'm away from the computer and email it to myself to write about later!)

    I wish I could go to the ocean, lake or river to write. My current laptop battery lasts 45 mins. I could buy a new battery, but this laptop is on it's last two legs (its been through two political campaigns and now has a giant crack across half the screen lol). I'm thinking about buying one of those little mini computers because I bet they have a much better battery life.

    My living room couch is my office and desk. If I need more room I use the coffee table.

    I find most other settings too distracting. If I went to a museum, I would never get any work done.

    In the bathroom is good, but my feet fall asleep after a while, or my laptop battery runs out.  Whichever comes first.  I'd plug it in - there is an outlet in there - but I'm afraid to sit so, uh, close to water with an electronic device plugged in, you know.  I mean, sure, I'm probably paranoid, but, I have these visions of electrocution like that and they come and find me tipped over, mooning the universe for all eternity (sort of) and, well, my laptop is probably broken from the fall, so I can't even leave it to anyone.  No dignity, and no laptop legacy.  Just tragic really. 

    What were we talking about?

    In my shed/office, depending on who I'm talking to at the time. I can look out into the garden, or a clothes line full of clothes depending on the wind. ;-)

    In my bedroom, in my study, in the lounge, at the dining room table, in my classroom at lunchtime, on a long train trip, wherever and whenever.  When I am on a roll with my book, then I use every available opportunity wherever I am, even in the back of a taxi.

    in the car when someone else is driving and the landscape whizzes by or on the front verandah in the sun...by water is even better.

    Mostly at my desk, but *any* place I can put pen to paper, like next to my favorite pond in the park.

    In my office, my bedroom, dining room.  At the "Cafe de la Place", this one is one of my favourites because I can sit there and have a look at the whole village's whereabouts -ok, at the end I don't get to write much, especially if it is near "aperitif" time but it is fun and less lonely smile

    Wow. Thanks guys for all the responses! I am definitely going to get out and explore and find a new place to write tomorrow. smile

    My bed. Or on occasion, the lounge. Though whichever, I prefer to be alone smile

    I love to write anywhere, anytime using my Nokia E75 mobile that has become very handy and useful tool. I write whatever comes to my my mind and then transfer it to my laptop and do some research work on internet to substantiate. Some topics need privacy and some need no specific surroundings.

    If we're traveling, that can be anywhere. But, i love writing at the beach, under a shady tree, with the sensurround symphony created by wind and ocean that provides the most soothing background  Weekdays, beaches in our area are not crowded, it's great!. Also, natures colors definitely provoke creativity.  At home, my workplace overlooks my garden where a pink bougainvillea vine has climbed my window. It never fails to 'relax' me.

    Little cafes where the staff doesn't mind if you spend an hour or two.  The park.  But mostly at home in my bedroom or on the computer...too busy with all of my little ones running about to do much else.

      isn't that how j.k.rowlings of henry potter fame started out? a little cafe somewhere near her flat in Portugal?

  20. GeneriqueMedia profile image61
    GeneriqueMediaposted 13 years ago

    I write mine in many places...in my head on the couch, in my head at work, in my head in the shower (no peaking!) and then sit down in front of my computer that is located in my roomie's bedroom (for I've a couch suite.)

    One of these days I want to get a laptop to replace the one that was stolen from me, but that would require money...or robbing a bank, but I'd probably feel too guilty of doing it and walk back in to give them the sack back.

      Another great idea. smile I do this a lot too. I usually try to keep things in my head, though, so I give them a chance to mutate. Besides, if I can't find a pen...all I have to do is convince myself that what idea I just dreamed up wasn't good. ;D
