1. Home at my desk
No matter what, this will always be my most comfortable place to write. In the same chair I've had since high school (it's seen a LOT of words) with my writing and book mementos (bookmarks, flyers, 'love' decorations and awards) surrounding me.
2. Home in bed
When it's late and I'm on a roll and want to get comfortable, I enjoy writing in the darkness propped up on pillows in my warm waterbed.
3. Alone in the park
Lately, this has become a favourite for me. In the winter months, it is beautiful outside (as airconditioning makes me cold) and Townsville has many beautiful parks that are quiet and relaxing to write in. I'll also be giving the dog park a try soon so that I can ensure my border collie Jacob gets some exercise at the same time.
4. At a quiet cafe
I recently enjoyed a nice session at Zaraffa's drinking tea, but I don't think this will be a regular spot for me as I hate paying $5 for tea! I can make my own tea and take it to the park.
5. The library
I don't know if it would be a 'favourite' place, as the library is freezing, the toilet facilities aren't good at my closest one, and libraries these days, at least in Townsville, seem to be a place to let your kids run around and scream. But at least my closest library - the bad toilet facility one - has a quiet room. But it is definitely a place to go with friends who can mind your stuff or somewhere to stop by and write for a very short while.
