Writing from home!
Michele tagged me for this meme the other day, and I’ve been so busy “writing at home” I haven’t had time to complete it.
Now that Write On Wednesday is up and running (or launched as they say in the web design business), I can sit back (in my favorite comfy chair), put my (bare!) feet on the ottoman, drink my tea (Adagio Rooibos Tropics…delish!), enjoy the new music I just dowloaded on my I-Pod (Mozart Piano Trio in B-flat major), and think about some of the reasons I love writing from home.
Hmmm…I believe I just told you quite a few of them.
Being comfortable is a big one.
Having my doggies nearby is another.
Being able to multi-task on the homefront is huge.
Most of all, being flexible…if the muse is being stubborn, I can prod her along with a walk, or by sitting down at the piano for a bit, or picking up a favorite inspirational book on writing.
One thing I try never to do when I’m supposed to be writing at home…turn on the television! For me, it’s sudden death to any creative urge or ambition!
I’ve been fortunate in that I can also do a good deal of my office job at home -it’s writing too, but of an entirely different kind. And all the same reasons apply. <smiles>
How about you? Can you work at home? Would you want to? Or do you like to keep work and home life separate?
