where i write from


when i read a thing on the internet i often wonder about the state of the writer when he or she wrote it. 

i imagine donny or robyn sitting at a kitchen table in the middle of the night with some really yummy snack that may or may not have been free,

meg or camilla in really stylish casual clothes in a beautiful sunny living room with a cup of tea,

nico on a plane hunched over and projectile-y writing because there is so much to say,

amanda ameer slightly drunk in an old leather chair with a glass of chardonnay or whatevs and laughing the entire time,

will in a desk chair at a clean desk with notes, an outline, google, his thinking cap, and a cup of water.

***

above is where i write from. in my bedroom, it is half desk/half vanity and it is where all sorts of thoughts and things run around my person. i usually write first thing in the morning with a cup of black coffee, non-ideal posture, and morning music playing {sometimes i get too excited and can't wait to write everything down so i forget the music and coffee}. this morning it was my mid-may playlist. depending on when the inspiration strikes me, i could be fully dressed and ready for the day, i could be just out of the shower and still in a robe, i could be alternating mascara and blush with photo editing and word barfing and gchatting with mum. occasionally i write at night, at which point i pump up da steve reich or edith piaf and pour some red velvet tea or wild tea vodka or both. i try to keep it luxurious. 
-yeh!

I never really thought about where people write from. Your space is so pretty!

you're actually kind of dead on about where I write from! Except the clothes part - because let's face it, typically I'm in lululemons and a flannel button up. :)

I don't write in a particular place. In fact, I don't write very often. But my sisters and I have a small blog we share, just a way to keep up with each other, and I think I'm going to introduce this idea: post a photo of where you write from every couple of weeks. We might get surprised. Perhaps we really do have place in which we write...
