When I first started writing I had a desk in a corner of my living. Then we lived in a small starter home that had a great room style living/dining/kitchen area. It was great when the kids were little. They’d be playing not far away where I could keep an eye on them while worked. Or tried to work between stopping to referee.
When we moved in 2006 to the house we live in now we designated one of the upstairs bedrooms as my office. This last summer are nephew came to live with us so we moved my office downstairs into what would be a formal dining room. I actually like it better.
The kitchen is close by. I can pop into my office easily without tromping up and down the stairs and there’s more natural light come through the window and the glass French doors leading into the playroom.
When my back is acting up I make a reclining nest on my couch.
It’s great on cold days. I turn the fireplace on, brew some tea, and use the heating pad on my back.
I love having a job where I can work from home.
