I don't have a room with a desk and walls of books and inspiring pictures, like a lot of the writers in those links. I have a room full of books and the only spare space is my bed. I have a spare room - actually, my nephews room - with a desk covered in all my uni editing books, and Thomas and Dora toys.
I don't like writing at home. There are too many distractions. My mum being the main one.
So I go to the cafe down the road and spend the day there, writing. The boys know my coffee order and if I'm doing well on my writing for the day, I order myself an extra-cheese toasted cheese sandwich.
I'm so productive in coffee shops. I write page after page and go home feeling satisfied and happy.
So the picture above isn't my usual cafe, but it is one near the University of Melbourne, where I did my undergrad, majoring in Creative Writing. I spent many hours and days writing stories and uni assignments in this cafe. The walls were covered in inspiring photos, and I got through some good people watching there, too.
Where do you write? Do you have a favourite cafe?
