Share your workspace blogfest!

I love the idea of Summer's Share Your Workspace blogfest - go here to check it out! I wanted to participate, but I'm traveling for work again and while I was home, forgot to snap a photo of the space where I write at home. Which, is nothing fancy either - it's a TV tray with my laptop in front of the couch, with random textbooks, writing books and novels piled up on the coffee table in front of me. And usually, some form of dark chocolate and a few cups to round out the picture.

But then I thought - well, I do a lot of my writing not there anyway. I'm on travel 50% of the time for work. Most of the The Goddess of Vengeance Wore Pink Galoshes was written in various Starbucks, Atlanta Bread Companies and indie coffee shops in Augusta, GA during the month I spent there. Today I wrote aboard a 747, sitting on the floor in the airport terminal waiting for my connecting flight, and in my hotel room. So here's a photo of one of today's workspaces:

MJ and I are remodeling a room in the basement to be our office, a place where we can be ourselves (read: where geekery can reign). I dream of Legos, framed comic books, an espresso station, orange paint, a giant whiteboard wall, and maybe an air hockey table (if it will fit). But that's just a nice to have. We make it work whatever we have in terms of our writing space, right?

Because we have to write.

Because we're nuts. :)

Go join Summer's blogfest and show us where you write!

Aw, I think this is great! Seriously, though, Atlanta Bread Company is the best. I love that place so hard. So, so hard. It makes me drool to think about it right now...

I was so excited to have an entire room to be our office. It's still not how I'd like to be entirely, but it's pretty darn cozy. :)

That's awesome! I just have a laptop and no writing space to speak of. I tend to write on my bed or my favourite chair in the living room :)

A huge whiteboard would be awesome.

I can play a a wicked game of air hockey (and ping pong).

I want to come play in your geekdom! :)

I don't always write in the space I posted either. Even right now, I'm ten feet away...and this morning I was in a tea shop. Whatever works!

Meredith said...

Well, as long as you have your laptop, you can write anywhere! Good luck with the new room--sounds like it will be amazing :)

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww it's a brilliant comfortable space!! It looks very cosy and warm and just lovely!!

Your plans for your basement sounds AMAZING!!!! Wow!!! GOOD LUCK with it!! Take care

Liza said...

You are right. We make it work. That expresso station though, well, that would make it work better.

Ooh, that office in the basement sounds awesome!!
