As you may know, I posted a survey almost a month ago asking the question, “Where do you write?” I promised to post the results after a few weeks. Here they are. Thanks to everyone who responded!
First, I want to say that my blog is still pretty new, so traffic is running a tad slow. LOL Therefore, I reserve the right to revisit this topic in a few months. In the meantime, here’s what you’ve told me from the 37 votes cast thus far.
|Place You Write||Votes||Percent|
|At a desk?||10||27%|
|At a table in your home?||8||22%|
|On a couch/a comfy chair?||7||19%|
|In an outdoor space at your home?||3||8%|
|On the bed?||3||8%|
|Elsewhere in your house?||0||0%|
|At a coffee or tea shop/restaurant?||2||5%|
|At the library?||1||3%|
|On public transportation?||3||8%|
|At the park?||0||0%|
Probably not a surprise to anyone that a desk is the most common spot for writers to do their work. At the same time, those who responded are almost as fond of writing at a table in the home or in a comfy seat (couch or chair).
I allowed respondents to choose all places that apply because I personally find myself working from three spots: my desk, the dining room table, and on public transportation.
The desk is my main location, but I use the dining room table from time to time as a change of venue. Sometimes, just moving to a different surrounding can help me get through a tough spot. In addition, I frequently find myself on public transportation. If an idea hits me while I’m commuting to or from somewhere, I use my phone to record it – a scene, dialogue, or whatever.
How about you? Are the results what you expected? If you haven’t already, please take a quick moment to click over to the survey and fill it out.
