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!

  • My power cord started sparking under the desk yesterday and so I had to retire the old boy, Of Mice and Men-style. Of course, because laptop manufacturers are a bunch of money grubbing crooks, none of the other five or six AC adapters I have in the house will fit the damn thing. And my battery gets about five minutes of charge when not plugged in, so….. I have one on order from ebay, but it looks like I’ll be relegated to borrowing computers for a few days at least. This also means I don’t have my extensive list of links and sources at hand, so I have to go with addresses I...
  • 'Proofreading and editing is for the hacks!" So quoth a supposedly superior intellect, who considers his documents to be so well written that he does not need to spend time and energy checking and re-checking them. Or possibly, he plans to engage the help of the built-in spell checker, which incidentally has a deplorable rating in correcting spelling and grammar.
  • Afraid to sink your teeth into the field of news writing? Well, you don't have to feel that way because writing news articles is relatively easy. All the rules and the format that you need to follow are very straightforward.
  • It is indisputably said that the first and foremost thing for a best case study analysis is to have a good understanding of the case study to be analysed. Before you begin writing a case study analysis, it is necessary to read the case several times to fully grasp the issues facing the company or industry.
  • Why do I have to write and submit article? The reason is that these article sites have a place where the author can place his biography with a link to his site. This shows up on the bottom of every article the author creates. Writing articles is the fastest and easiest way to get people to your website that recognize your name by your signature and adhere to what you recommend. Article writing and distribution creates free one way incoming links back to your web site. Link building in this manner increases your web sites exposure, visitors and you overall search engine rankings. By...

Fast fact about writing

Writing was developed independently in Egypt, Mesopotamia, China, and among the Maya in Central America. There are some areas where the question as to whether writing was adopted or independently developed is in doubt, as at Easter Island.
