'Write with...' - Week Three: Where to write?


This week I'm asking quite an important question... where do you write?

I used to write in cafes, by rivers, on trains, on the sofa and all over the show. I also used to get really bad back and neck problems. "Are these linked?" I wondered. Er... yes. More than that however I started to realise that where I wrote had an impact on my mood and productivity. I found my own space that meant I was working. This is what we get down to talking about this week and I hope you can join in and let us know where you write and if you are like 'Old Me' whether we can help convince you to find somewhere new to be a writer. Let me know how you get on and I will see you next week...
