I looked back at previous Writer's Workspace blogs thinking I would see all these beautiful office spaces, perfectly organized, creatively decorated with lots of Feng Shui. Imagine my relief! Turns out lots of romance authors are like me, writing on a laptop wherever we wish!
I write on an MacBook Air, which I LOVE, and sit on a recliner loveseat using the foot rest as a desk sometimes. My research books sit next to me. Sometimes, if I am very lucky, a cat will also sit next to me. Or on me. Behind me is a printer in a nook that is more "office" than den and deserves to be hidden from view.
Hoarders, but, I assure you, the rest of the house is adequately neat and clean. To see the hoarding version of this room, go to my blog.
I realized long ago that I enjoy writing the best when I am not shut away in an office. I like being in the thick of things so that I can see, hear, and respond to what is going on. It is the way I adapted so that writing did not take me away from my family, so I could always know when someone needed or wanted my attention--even if now it is only noticing that the birds outside need more water.
