My writing time has been very hard to come by lately. So, when I get a little bit (even a smidgen - I really love that word) I feel like I need to make the most of it.
95% of the the time I have no choice about where I write. My children determine it for me. I write in the living room during a video. I write in their bedrooms while they play around and over me. I write in the car waiting to pick them up. I write during sports practices, during Sunday school, and in doctors office waiting rooms. But there is a magical 5% of the time when I get to pick where I write. On the few occasions when all three are in school and I'm not participating in anyone's classroom, it is all up to me!
And I have discovered that I can not write in silence. It is just too foreign to me and my lifestyle to have quiet. I find it horribly distracting. So, my new favorite spot to write is a bagel/coffee shop. It is sufficiently noisy, I can have a whole table to spread stuff out and - bonus - I can eat a bagel there too! Yum! : )
