Before I did most of my writing, and by writing I mean blog posts, emails, business correspondence, pen pal letters, etc. outside of my home. And by outside I mean coffee bars and libraries.
For the last couple of weeks, and for more to come, I've been doing just about everything but cooking from my bed.
When I was going to the library/coffee bar I needed to pack a tote bag with a notebook, assorted pens & Sharpies, writing paper and blank cards for pen pals, envelopes, stamps, postcards, something to read, phone charger, and my extra phone. And my reading glasses. I had to be wearing super comfortable clothes and shoes, and I always had a light jacket or sweater even in summer because of the air conditioning or drafts. If there is a draft it will find me. Just like Frisbees, .if anyone throws one within a three block radius of where I'm walking or sitting - it will hit me.
Now I keep a fully loaded tote bag right beside my bed, and a laptop right underneath it. The uniform every day is one of several pairs of comfy PJs. Since I am currently sans barista or soda machine; bottled water and Gatorade or Diet Coke are also close by. Pandora pipes in the Zen music that keeps me slightly less insane.
Am I writing more from my bed?
I am doing less free-writing and more pen pal writing. I started two new public blogs. This one is for me, the other is for writing challenges; I'm doing the Blogging from A to Z Challenge starting the first of April.
Has not having people around me - whether I'm talking to them or not - changed things?
Surprisingly it hasn't - so far. Though once we can all sit in Starbucks again I am re-launching my mobile blog. Back in NYC I posted in real time from Starbucks, diners, park benches, just about everywhere. Bits of conversation, whatever madness was going on, photos etc. Loved it. Don't know why I stopped.
Are you stopping at two public blogs?
I'm thinking audio blog.
I'll be back.
Sending all kinds of good vibes to you all.
