Most of my writer friends have a place where they love to write – – – some small corner or niche that provides a great view, or lets them escape the house, chores and family.
Mine is…STARBUCKS. Yep, that’s right. My all-time favorite place to write is Starbucks. But not any Starbucks…my favorite one down the street. The one where everyone knows my name – and I know theirs (kinda like my own version of Cheers).
It is my favorite writing spot for many reasons. First, I can leave my wonderful family and hide for a few hours. (When I am home, hiding is virtually impossible unless EVERYONE is asleep.) Then there is the actual cast of wonderful baristas. These guys provide an endless pool of potential characters for my books.
Now, obviously I can’t manage to hide at Starbucks everyday…so where else do I write? At the beach, out by the pool, at my desk and in my favorite chair with my lapdesk are on my short list.
What about you? Where do you like to write? Where is your muse most evident???
I would love to hear from you…
