This “Writing Prompt” on Writing Space is from the other day, but I did want to take a moment to write on it….
On the one hand I like to be left alone when I’m writing so I can concentrate on what I’m doing. On the other hand if I’m really into it I can tune other things out like background noises and such… But if someone is calling my name (like my husband or son) I end up having to respond. Since I do a lot of my heavy blogging/writing in the home office on my computer responding means getting up and going to where they are… For some reason, “I’m busy” doesn’t work for more than a minute or so at best. So at that point I’m now up (and not obviously busy) so I must have the time to deal with whatever is that needs doing. That aside, I find that I don’t need a specific writing space. Just about anywhere will do. I can “write” using my computer, my phone, even a small notebook will work for jotting down story notes, ideas, etc.
Of course there is the argument that I am reluctant to even call myself a “writer”… Blogger? Yeah, Sure – Love to blog (and do my best to do so every day). But writing (actual writing) is another story.
