I worked very briefly in an office setting as a travel agent, but apparently not enough to get the humor of shows like The Office. Most of my time has been spent in a classroom, either as a student or a teacher.
Now that I’m doing more writing, my office is wherever my laptop can go. Sometimes it’s on my comfy couch, with a cat snuggled on my lap. Yesterday it was on the back deck, watching my kids play in the sandbox. Today, it’s with a good friend at Tim Horton’s.
Some of the writing I do is paid, and some is just for me, with the dream of someday holding a book in my hands with my name on the cover. I’d say it’s also to read it to my kids, but they already love listening to my stories. Whether or not Mommy is published isn’t an issue.
So whatever it is that you do, take a few moments to yourself, find a place to sit and do what you love. Just be ready when the kids, or the pets, or the husband need something!
