BEHIND THE SCENES blog hop, take three!

We're participating in Dahlia Adlers blog hop for her debut BEHIND THE SCENES (learn more here). On Monday, we shared more about BEHIND THE SCENES and a peek at Dread Pirate B.'s (that's me!) workspace. On Tuesday, we showed you where Jas Ketch, Siren of the Seychelles and Captain E. Hook write.

Today, check out where Back from the Dead Red and Lady Byrd Bonebreaker like to write!


Back from the Dead Red (Ellen Goodlett)

I can't write at home. The draw of TV is too strong for my weak will. So realistically, my writing space is wherever I happen to wind up in NYC -- the subway, tea rooms, coffee shops, bars. My current favorite is a cafe in the West Village called PressTea, where I camped out for a productive 12 hours with some other writers. Also they have delicious flavored iced tea. But now that it's summer, my goal is to start writing in some of the hidden gardens in the East Village!

Lady Byrd Bonebreaker (Sara Biren)

I'm very fortunate that I can write anywhere - on a computer, in a notebook, or on scraps of paper - and anytime, although I feel more creative in the very early morning. Most of my writing is done at night after my kids go to bed, and at that time, I'm usually sitting on the couch in my living room with my feet up. 

I can spend all day at a coffee shop, I can write while listening to music or the birds chirping or my kids arguing. 

When weather permits (about half of the year  if I'm lucky), I like to set up on my front porch with a view of the bird feeders and our rock garden and any storms rolling in from the west. 

There must always be coffee or Mendota Springs Sparkling Water with Lime.
