Once again it’s time for the weekly Sunday Brunch with ZA Maxfield! This week, we have two awesome friends joining us! Please welcome T.T. Kove and A. Morell!
This week’s question is: “Where do you do most of your writing?”
***BIG NEWS*** From now on, instead of the ebooks we’ve been awarding as prizes, I’ll be giving out a $5.00 Amazon gift card so readers can use it for the ebook (or other Amazon purchase) of their choice. All you have to do is comment below for your chance to win!
I would like to answer that I have a big office, full of bookshelves filled with books, but sadly, it isn’t so. I haven’t even got a small office, at the moment. So I do most of my writing on the sofa, and occasionally at the dining room table or in bed. It all depends on where I am and if there’s other people in the house and/or flat with me. I need to be alone to concentrate, so as long as that’s accomplished, I can write almost anywhere! 🙂

Next up we have A Morell!
Just kidding. Well, not really.
I do my writing wherever I can get inspired, so I write anywhere and everywhere. I have four notebooks floating around me right now (one in my purse, one on my nightstand, one on my dresser, and one at my desk), two notepads on my refrigerator, and an endless supply of sticky notes so no matter where I am when an idea comes I can write it down.
Though I suppose technically I have five notebooks. The last one is my Toshiba, purchased just before NaNoWriMo 2011 and enabled with Scrivener and without internet to prevent distractions. I do my actual writing on there and take it with me wherever I go, but it all started on my thirty-minute train commute to my old job when I decided to make better use of that free time. Though I can’t seem to get ideas staring at a blank screen. Give me a blank page, and I will fill it with ink.
Still, there’s just something about writing on the train that I love and miss now that I’m a ten-minute bike ride from work. Something about watching the world go past your window while you whittle away a story in another universe. Tomoki, the rock band leader and composer in “Change of Fortune,” writes a lot when he’s on tour. I think he gets that from me, writing notes and bits of inspiration on whatever scraps of paper are on hand. There’s a point where technology needs to take over, but both of us have that physical connection first.
So while I now do most of my writing at home (or at work during slow periods but shh), when the restlessness hits I’ll just buy a ticket and go for a train ride.
