I'm curious. Where are you most productive? Do you have an office? A Desk? The kitchen table? A favorite chair? A coffee shop? A bookstore?
Is it quiet? Is there chaos? Music? TV?
What time is it? First thing in the morning? Mid afternoon? Late at night? All day long?
Do you surround yourself with inspiration? Character pictures? Research books? Clutter?
Are you organized? A hot mess?
Me? I've found that I'm most productive sitting in my chaise lounge with the laptop in front of me. I've got my headphones on but my music selection varies each day. Some days it's Mozart. Others it's Boyz II Men, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson or Willie Nelson. My kids constantly interrupt me and my husband is always asking what's for dinner. But still I manage to crank out more words during those times than when I'm all alone in a quiet house sitting at the new desk.
My 2nd most productive writing time is Monday mornings at Caribou coffee. I'm not sure what it is. I think I just like the vibe.
Another quick question...American Idol starts tomorrow. Will you be watching this season?
On a side note: SIS Bren's dog, Dizzy, is missing. He was staying with some family while Bren and her husband were out of town and he escaped. Brenda has had Dizzy for more years than I can remember. She is doing everything she can to find him. Please send thoughts and prayers her way so that they can be reunited.
