My writing setup

Some five years ago I wrote a similar post. This is the 2017 updated edition.

I sit at this desk some 14 hours a day, writing and blogging and reading all sorts of stuff. The Xbox is there ‘cause it looks nice; I turn it on once a month to update it and then turn it back off.

There’s a window behind that curtain. I usually keep the curtains like that. The sun hurts my eyes. Or maybe I’m a vampire. Think about it, I live in Romania.

The books I am reading right now on the desk. Dunno.

One of my favorite paintings – I have plenty of those.

I guess that’s it, pretty much.

What about your writing setup? Where do you write?

  1. My blog has, somehow, moved from longer blogs to shorter, much shorter, blogs and, so, I tend to throw things up from my phone.
    I’ve moved into my apartment now, though, in Colorado. Once we have a desktop, I believe I’ll be more attentive to my blog. Probably changing it up a little and operating within the paid version.


  2. Your chair looks so comfortable! I need a new one. Currently sitting at my unusually cluttered desk…candle burning in the background, dim room and notebooks/sketch books everywhere. Cheers to the writing


  3. It depends what kind of writing we’re talking about. If about blogging here on WP, then I definitely sit at my desk/ table filled with office stuff (calendars, pens, paper, etc.) and write on my laptop. However, anything else, I prefer to write on paper. Wherever I get inspired – on a bus, in bed, on the floor, in the tub, etc.


  4. I write using my iPhone. That way, I can compose posts, read other bloggers’ posts, write comments, and even catch up on the latest news wherever I am. Sometimes while in bed. Sometimes while watching TV in the living room. Sometimes on the bus. Sometimes, even, while sitting on the toilet. Is that TMI? Only occasionally will I actually sit down at my desk in front of my computer. So my writing setup is wherever my iPhone and I happen to be.


    • I do a lot of stuff from my phone too. I can, well, write short posts or approve comments or stuff like that. Kept this blog up for quite some time only using a phone. But more elaborate blog posts require a laptop. It’s easier that way.

  5. Thank you for sharing, that looks very professional and tidy :)
    l write on a small laptop notebook, on my lap, mostly sitting in a recliner chair with my feet up and sometimes in bed, when the living quarters are too noisy for me to focus.
    Sitting in a desk chair hurts my posture and l end up getting neck and shoulder cramps interrupting my writing. Basically l get so involved with what l write, l forget what my body is doing and end up slouching and hunching over the keyboard.
    Sometimes l escape to a virtual world and write while there on notecards that l copy/paste to my blog when the post is finished. Keeping those notecards doubles as a backup and they are sometimes beneficial to hand out to other virtual world inhabitants that need advice or cheering up. l love listening to the soothing background music and/or nature sounds in my ‘home sim’ with beautiful virtual nature surrounding me there, inducing a calm and creative frame of mind.


    • Tell me about neck pain and all that. My lower back also hurts from sitting at this desk for as long as I do. I usually take short breaks and walk around the house like a lunatic, but that doesn’t help very much.
      I used to have a recliner back at the old apartment, but I found that it also hurt my back. I think everything’s made to hurt your back. We’re just not created to do other than stand and walk around.


  6. This post reminded me of my old studio. I find having a set place to do creative work helps get the work done. That said….right now I work on my kitchen table and/or anywhere I can find space to work. The important thing is to be doing the creative work.
    Enjoyed the comment about Romania and vampires. Very clever.
