Where do you set yourself up to write?

    Where do you set yourself up to write?

    When you sit down to do some serious hub building, where about in your house do you set yourself up ? Curious as to what seating you use also? Any other quirks go along with your location?
    Many thanks in advance.

    I have back and neck problems.  You'd think I would have figured out by now that sitting for long periods of time is not good for me.  But, what I do is prop myself up with a pillow.  I was just wondering today if there is anyone that stands to write. 

    I have a studio.  I have a desk from Ikea with a cheap printer to one side and a calculator to the other.  I keep my camera nearby to take pictures for my Hubs.  I also am known to have a cup of tea by my side.

    I keep a container of pens on my desk and a notebook for research.  Everything I pretty much need is right here at my fingertips in order to write a Hub.

    I have a study where I have a desk with a computer which I use to write my hubs. Recently I learned that it is important to create a writing space and a sort of routine to begin writing. Of course, correct seating is important because I too have had back and shoulder problems. A friend, occupational therapist, suggested that we have to stand up and walk around for 2 minutes for every 20 minutes of sitting down.

    One way to do is to have break reminder software. Check out my article on Free Apps to Avoid Eyestrain for some suggestions. Another resource is in which you can get information on the disadvantages of sitting for too long and the remedies.

    We usually get carried away when in front of a computer. Another suggestion is to use a kitchen timer.

    Do to the suggestion of the great Stephen King, I recently relocated my desk to a corner of my bedroom.  I used it in my kitchen for months, but faced many distractions.  I finished reading Stephen King's book, On Writing. He willingly shares many of his secrets to success in this memoir.

    I write in two places when creating fiction, upstairs computer room, devoid of distractions and the living room in front of the TV (slows my mind down so the creative process does not overrun the speed of my typing).

    I have what I call my 'office', (other tenants would call it a bedroom, den, etc.). I have a PC desk and an office chair. I used to have Word. (But I reset my PC thinking it would help and lost several programs. Ugh, besides the point.)

    It is up on the second floor and has a bright sunny window. Except when it is cloudy and then I use the overhead light. It is bright too. The cloudy days are the only quirks that I have. I get exercise going up and down the stairs often.
