Continuing with the online writing course, we are looking at where we write:
Worst place to write
It’s really busy and cramped, noise clatters around me. The hostile metal of the station bench pushes against my bones, acting as a wick for the cold that surrounds. Feet rush past; high heels click clacking as they rush for the train. There is too much going on. The thoughts in my mind are fighting against the pain in my joints. Voices invade my space along with the bodies they belong to. Pushing and jostling. I move away from the torturous seat and go in search of coffee.
Best place to write
There’s some gentle background music. Acoustic probably. I’m cocooned in a blanket, cosy and warm as I sidle up to the radiator. The chair hugs me, supportively. I reach out for the pot of tea as I run words over my tongue. Testing them. Choosing them. Rejecting them. My laptop sits on the table next to paper and pen. I flick between the two mediums although everything will end up electronic in the end.
