Weekend Writers Cafe - I’d Rather Be Writing In… All Virtual Expenses Paid By The Writers Cafe

Where do you like to write?
Joanna Young has me envious, but you could join her too… She’s running a writing workshop in sunny Sardinia on the Mediterranean in October. Check it all out at Absorbing Writing.
Bob Younce wrote at Meryl.net about freelance writing myths
freelance writing consists entirely of days on the beach sipping margaritas and writing for half an hour on your laptop.. I wonder if this is what non writers think freelancers do.
I’m playing writing fairy godmother today, and making your perfect writing location happen for you. We know you love to write, but where have you always wanted to write?
DISCUSSION STARTERS

    If money was no object (think of it as taking the Writers Cafe on tour) -
  • Where would you most like to write - anywhere in the world?
  • Maybe you’d like to tell us about the most interesting, inspiring, humorous. terrible, perfect writing place you’ve written in.
  • Is there a famous writer (past or present) who you’d like to hang out with?

I could certainly be tempted by Joanna’s workshop in Sardinia. Also, I’ve always wanted to take a few months off to write in Ireland. I fell in love with the place a few years ago. I still need to visit Trinity College to see the Book of Kells.
Of course, it would need to be somewhere with high speed unlimited internet access… preferably wireless. A view and a fireplace would be nice too. I want it all!
And outside the house, for me places with history and ambience are places I love to write. I’ve visited the Writers Bar at Singapore’s famed Raffles hotel a few times (We’ve even held a Writers Cafe there), and can just imagine Somerset Maughan and Rudyard Kipling writing there…. also the Inklings Bar in Oxford.. where Tolkien and CS Lewis used to meet. I’d love to hang out with Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde. That would be a hoot.
Other places that “speak” words and writing to me are some of the old libraries like the Rose Main Reading Room at the New York Public Library and the British Museum reading room (Check out the photo - even a virtual visit is worth it). I visited the oldest lending library in the US at Newport, Rhode Island and sat in the reading room there, soaking up the atmosphere and history.
My current favorite writing spot is my verandah (deck) looking out onto subtropical rainforest and listening to birds. I have the same view from my office window, but there’s nothing like breathing in the fresh air.
How about you?
Remember it’s all expenses paid courtesy of the Writers Cafe. Indulge yourself
As always, any other writing, blogging or business topic or question can be thrown into the mix. Share a link to something useful for writers if you like, and help yourself to the delicious Writers Cafe feast. Waiters are on hand, so just sit back, relax and enjoy!

  • So it looks as if Inkygirl's been hacked again (if you missed reading about the first one, see this post). This time the hack is more subtle (no malware) and only noticeable in search engines. If you try entering "inkygirl" in Google right now, here's what you get as the top hit: Chris Pearson encountered the same hack and posted a solution, but it didn't work for me. I admit to being frustrated, especially after Jeff spent so long cleaning up after the first hack, and all the time I've been spending on repairs as well. And this has got me thinking more about time management issues. In the...
