Writing is solitary work, but it doesn’t have to be lonely.
Once in a while, I find it’s fun to shake things up a bit and get out of my rut. So I like to hie me someplace other than my office and write, preferably with friends. Writing “solo together” can be energizing, plus you have somebody right there to talk shop with when you’re ready to take a break.
Fellow children’s authors Jennifer Jacobson and Jane Kurtz are in town this week (Jane’s visiting her brother Chris Kurtz), so the four of us met up with our laptops yesterday morning at a local coffee shop. The answer is yes, we worked — and I have the pictures to prove it. We also had fun in the process.
I was behind the camera, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that I was working, too. Here I am showing off our city’s fabulous Rose Garden.
Where’s your favorite out-of-the-office place to write?
