Thanks to Eve for saying something that inspired this poll. :cool:

Ugh...I write in the living room. I want the computer moved to my room, though...it sucks having to write while people walk by, making noise, asking you to do this, or do that.
I write in my room. Thank goodness for laptops! Room is quiet, but dining room has internet. The ultimate annoyance.
At least, at home. Right now I write in my dorm room. Or the floor lounge if a roommate's watching TV.
And ironically, the internet hasn't worked in my room since Thanksgiving, yet the lounge's internet works fine. :rolleyes:
12-03-2007, 05:09 AM
No internet! Well that sucks...
Well, the lounge is just down the hallway. I just have to carry my computer and notes there every time. :rolleyes:
12-03-2007, 06:11 AM
What a bother. :D
At least the computers there don't struggle with Mircosoft Word...do they?

I put outer space because basically I write wherever I can. Sometimes that's at home, sometimes at school, sometimes in the library, sometimes in the car, etc...
12-03-2007, 11:44 AM
Mostly at home in my room. I used to write on the bus and tram, but I don't use those any more, and I don't get chance anywhere else. I have to write in my room because if I'm anywhere else I'm public property. I'm still public property in my room, but I can at least glare if anyone comes through the door, and they'll go away ... sometimes.
12-03-2007, 05:42 PM
I write in Outer Space when I'm returning home. :D But, mostly, it's in my room. :)
12-03-2007, 11:09 PM
I write in my Study, it's very comfortable.^_^
I write in my basement, which is basically my favorite place in my house. It is dark(which I love) and the main computer's downstairs so yea:)
04-05-2008, 12:27 AM
I really write in my family's office or outside. Depends if I am writing in a notebook or computer.
04-07-2008, 03:04 PM
My computer is in the living room so I have no choice, but hopfully I will get a laptop soon and I can write in my rooom or on a hill somewhere. :)
07-27-2008, 11:26 PM
I write in my room becaouse during the time I write I have some semblence of piece and quiet...but I would love to write in the library...its always so much fun to go there because it always has the kind of noise level I write best in; its quiet but there is a kind of humming (almost) in the bg that lets you know that there are other people there and that you're not completely alone. (I like having people around me, especially quiet people cuz I don't live with any...)
07-29-2008, 08:05 PM
I practically just live in my room... I almost never come out. So I writing in my room of course XD
07-30-2008, 05:54 PM
I really separate myself from the rest of my family. I'm the oddball, my mother is a pharmacist, my father is the stay at home dad who likes to hunt and other random manly things, my little sister is a total pokemon freak... I know right, then there is me, musically inclined, graceful, pretty(I know I'm very modest, but at least I didn't call myself gorgeous.), dorky, Mary. I never leave my room, unless it's to practice my flag for guard or to practice soccer, therefore it's generally where my works are created. On my trusty MacBook that is.. :)
07-31-2008, 11:10 AM
Like Phantom, I, too, am the oddball in my family. My grandfather delivers important mail a state over, my grandmother cooks and tidies the house, my mother is something I can't even begin to explain [she says she's a project manager, whatever that is;] my dad is a construction worker, my sister Jen can do practically anything, and my sister Jess is everyone's little angel. I'm the only one that likes to write. I couldn't say that I'm the only one that wants to act, because Jen want to act just so that she can become better than me at everything. So writing is really my thing.
To answer the question, I steal my ma's computer from the kitchen's study and travel up to my room, where I can [usually] concentrate.

I have my own little play house (I know it sounds cheesy but it's really cool!) behind my house it has air condition electricity, a computer, an electric keyboard, my quads (when they arn't at school) lots of art I'v done on the walls, and a big compfy chair where I write.
10-10-2008, 10:32 PM
Elephnt, you are so lucky. That sounds awesome :).
My room, but I get most of my ideas outside. I wont carry my computer outside though, too paranoid it will get wet :p.
10-14-2008, 07:08 AM
On the computer. Hopefully Lyk will give me that disc with all the new microsoft stuff on it, so my spell checker WILL work. Praise the lord!
10-14-2008, 11:00 PM
I write on my computer when my sister isn't hogging it, but if not, usually in my room on looseleaf or in a notebook. You've no idea how many scraps of paper with story snippets and ideas I found when I was cleaning my room. Let me just tell you, it was a lot.
10-15-2008, 11:28 AM
When I write I am not here; I am with my characters in wherever THEY are. :D :D
10-15-2008, 11:47 AM
I usually write at my computer, in the dining room. When I write, I have to put on my ipod to block out all the noise from the living room. xP
10-15-2008, 06:58 PM
I can't write with music playing, unless it's quiet orchestrated music, then I can have it. It breaks my concentration on the story, and I start listening to the lyrics instead. It takes me a long time to write anything down.
10-22-2008, 10:20 PM
I write in the sitting room. It doesn't bother me if anybody else is in the room watching TV or whatever.
10-23-2008, 04:14 AM
hmm i write in my room Dx
i prefer paper and pen over the computer too XD
i think i just get too distracted on the computer.. plus, looking at the screen for a while makes me go cross eyed lately for some reason.
10-27-2008, 01:17 AM
Mostly my room, but if I'm going to be away from there for a long time, I usually take a notebook with me >_<
02-13-2009, 12:58 AM
I write wherever.
02-15-2009, 02:54 PM
I write wherever there is a computer
I only write in complete and utter isolation, as that is the only way I can let my imagination thrive and feed upon thoughts trapped by my ideas listing. So, anywhere there isn't people.
02-15-2009, 11:08 PM
I write outside my cave.
02-17-2009, 12:15 AM
I usually write in my room. It's the only quiet place in my house.
02-17-2009, 07:24 AM
I usually write in bed, my bed is pretty much where I do everything, from sleeping, writing, all the way to... uhm... well, that should be obvious >_> My shitty back limits me a lot of times and I can't sit in a chair for long or I seize up. Sometimes I write at the library, but only short stuff.
My 'puter is in the corner of Kadath & I's room. That's usually where, though sometimes I use my laptop in bed if it's late at night or my computer is acting up.
02-17-2009, 08:31 AM
I usually write in the eternity, because there everything
is kind and beautiful. This is not meaning, however my
writings automatically will be posted here in our reality.
02-19-2009, 07:54 PM
My room! :D I love my room.
02-20-2009, 02:49 AM
Ya, my room. Last time I tryed writeing outside I figured it would be fun to do it real high up in a tree so my dogs, cows, hens wount be all over me. Long storie short the branch snaped and I ended up on the ground in a hurry.
I usually write in my room where no one else is around.
02-27-2009, 12:36 AM
I usually write in school when im bored i take my notebok out and write about all my characters. yesterday I started a story about friends in a high school with lots of drama issues and EDWARD is going to be in 1 chapter!!
02-28-2009, 09:19 PM
EDWARD is going to be in 1 chapter!!
Fail fanfiction is gonna really fail.
Anyways, I mostly write at home where the least amount of people will see me. If someone watches me write, I get nervous and try to drive them away
03-01-2009, 06:26 PM
jenny, please post that story. I could use a laugh right now.
03-03-2009, 09:12 PM
My parent's room is the one with the computer, so there, usually.I also write at school or my room, with pad and paper.
02-27-2010, 03:22 AM
in the summer i'll take a notebook out into the woods or a laptop, (usually not the laptop, i cant see the screen outdoors...) in the winter, (i wish i get into our dormer, but i'd have to bring a ladder upstairs.) i usually write in my room with my laptop.
03-01-2010, 04:06 AM
My favorite place to write is on the bus in the 'No Wit' zone. I can't write when its quiet, XD
I usually write in my room,while listening to music,because this way I get inspired! lol :D
03-04-2010, 06:32 PM
I write in my room to the tunes of songs that have inspired me and continue to do so. I love songs that remind me of things my characters have gone through and/or will go through.
03-06-2010, 07:14 PM
In bed late at night under the covers, when I'm supposed to be asleep... I'm usually listen to my Ipod because that's where I get my light from and sometimes it helps me set a mood for whatever I'm scribbling down.
03-07-2010, 10:08 AM
I write in the most empty place of the house, wherever that is. Empty meaning devoid of people, and devoid of clutter. Otherwise I get distracted, which happens too much :)
03-07-2010, 04:55 PM
I write in my room on my bed. It's very quiet there and I sleep comfortably if I get writer's block and fall asleep. :P
03-08-2010, 02:43 PM
Unless I'm not in a gathering with my friends and we decide that that day we will all write together, then I'm usually sitting in my room at the pc and writing. :) Sometimes, but only sometimes, I like to go to my moms quiet room and write something there, but this has started only recently- after I left the state of living alone and started to live with my best friend. :)
You literally live with your best friend,you mean in the same house?
04-05-2010, 11:26 PM
In other news, I usually write in my room (like right now, :) ) Or in class. Or on the bus. Or on the beach. Or ... :D Anywhere really. I always carry a notebook with me, and go through one about every two weeks. Most of it isn't good, mind you...
04-06-2010, 08:46 AM
Naked. In my cupboard.
I'm not joking.
04-06-2010, 07:41 PM
Oh, I hope not.
Otherwise, so many people would be disappointed.
11-12-2010, 06:55 AM
In my own world of thoughts… But in my room.
11-21-2010, 06:46 AM
At school or the computer at home -- the problem is that we used to have a kids computer but its motherboard (don't ask me what that is!) crashed and now the computer's broken...So I use my mother's computer and don't get as much time on it. :(
11-24-2010, 02:31 AM
I do it where ever but I'm rarely on earth. :)
11-16-2011, 09:12 PM
My mom is always complaining about how I live in my room. I'm locked up in my room writing and listening to music for hours a day. I like to keep my writing private right now, and my room is the only one with a lock on it (thank the Lord).
