Author, author... all about it!

Today we have a guest post from

Liz Grace Davis

My Writing Corner

I know that some writers have a certain room where they write, a set writing space. I don’t. Well, not really. But actually, until last week, I used to sit on one spot of the couch. The same spot every single time. I’m serious. After two years (last week), we had to throw the couch away because that place on the couch was so worn-out, it made the rest of the couch look really bad. When we had guests over, I always placed a cushion on the spot to cover it up. It was really embarrassing. Now we’re in the process of moving and getting a new couch for the new place. I had to promise my husband that I’ll try to sit on different parts of the new couch. We’ll see how that goes. I can’t promise anything.

Even though I don’t need a special room to write in, our new place has a large basement and I plan to create a writing corner down there. But I don’t think I’ll be using it much, though. Maybe just to play author. That’s because I can write anywhere. And I don’t mind noise. In fact, I love to write while listening to country music. I inherited the love of country from my father. I’ve listened to it since I was a child. My favorites were Kenny Rogers and Don Williams. In school my friends made fun of me but I didn’t care. Listening to country calms me, me happy. Even better, all those stories they sing and makes about, they get my creative juices flowing.

But as I said, all that is not necessary for me to be able to write—the couch, the music... In the end, all I need is my laptop, a writing pad, and a pen that doesn’t leak. Oh, and  a place to sit (doesn’t have to be a couch).
