One of my favorite questions from the kids at my last set of school visits was, “Where do you like to write?”
My answer is my screened-in porch in the backyard. Now that summer is coming on, there’s no place I’d rather be than sitting in my big white rocking chair with my laptop and a cold drink. It’s a bit windy out here this evening, but most days, there’s a definite Secret Garden vibe. We’ve got squirrels, rabbits, woodpeckers, cardinals, sometimes hawks, and the occasional cat stalking prey. And when I need to just sit and stare and think about my story, there’s no place more peaceful.
Also, I can get internet out here. Best. Porch. Ever.
