IWSG Wednesday

The first Wednesday of every month is officially IWSG day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.
FYI: The IWSG monthly question can be found under the IWSG Sign-up tab on the Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog.
December 5 question-What are five objects we’d find in your writing space.

Some of the monthly questions, I struggle with. But this one is fun. I either write in my ‘cave’, the living room, the dining room or the porch.  In any of these you’ll find my laptop, at least one cat, hot coffee or iced tea, in the cave: book cover posters, currently in the living room, the Christmas tree😊.
What about you? Where do you create?

Love that you have at least one cat where-ever you create. Helpful little beasts aren't they? When it suits them.

I just write about the events in my life, boring they may be.
Loved your post Sandra.

Yvonne.

Pat Hatt said...

haha we sure have a cat about too here at our zoo

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I have a cat on my desk right now. I guess I should've included cats on my list.

Christine said...

Good that you write all over the house, lovely meme, a pause for thought.

Lee said...

In my mind.... :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That helps you can write many places.

Sounds as if you can be creative anywhere you feel the urge...the sign of a true writer.
I have a small corner in our family room area that is set up for me.

Big Hugs ❄🎄❄

My desk has my computer and printer of course, with some paper for notes and scribbling when bored.

Adam said...

My desk, printer, chair, bookshelf, my office is rather empty

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed:)

I'm not a writer in the sense of the word, but I write a blog, so that I do in my office where both cats are allowed to join me. I make art in my craft room or my basement studio, were neither cat is allowed. People don't really want cat hair in their mixed media art gifts. I photograph my art in my dining room where there is usually really good natural light. In other words, I use my entire house to make art. Great question.

Writing under the Christmas tree sounds wonderful. I'll have to give that a try.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Christine.

Sandra Cox said...

You do a wonderful job of writing your life events, Yvonne.

I like this. In my writing space you'll find my computer, my memory card reader, the phone, my calendar and my cat, Lizzie!

cleemckenzie said...

Yep! That's a heart-stopping phrase all right.

Sandra Cox said...

That works:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Of course.

Sandra Cox said...

On my way over to check out your list.

Sandra Cox said...

The change ups actually help wake up the muse when she's napping:)

Yes, I love to write in my family room right now. I have the Christmas tree lit up and it's so cozy as I snuggle under my giant blanket. Instead of cats, you'll find dogs in my writing space. :)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Jan. Feeling the urge is key. Heh.
Your corner of the world sounds purrfect.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds like a writer's desk:)

Sandra Cox said...

You have the necessities:)

Sandra Cox said...

You have a creative soul.
Those cat hairs are stealthy aren't they? They go everywhere.

Nick Wilford said...

Coffee or tea is a recurring theme in these posts. I like the sound of a cave to write in!

Sandra Cox said...

We will be writing together:)

Sandra Cox said...

It is a scary pause isn't it? :)

Sandra Cox said...

Good finds indeed:)

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds delightful, Elsie.

Sandra Cox said...

Nick, are you saying we all drink a lot? Heh.

Lowcarb team member said...

Well, I certainly can't call myself a writer, although I blog.

I do have my favourite chair to sit on when I blog … but no cats … only lots of cups of tea :)

All the best Jan

DMS said...

I usually write in my office- though sometimes I write on my couch (on the laptop). What surrounds me varies depending on where I am. :) My cats are usually nearby and so is a coffee or water.

Sandra Cox said...

You probably get more done with tea than cats. Heh.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds familiar:)

Magic Love Crow said...

I like that you always have a cat around you! I only have one area, where I paint. And, I like it. The only thing I wish, is that I had a door. Sometimes, I like the quiet, when I create! Big Hugs!

Birgit said...

I am soooooo late. My cave, which I love, is my craft room where I create. it is full of papers, glitter, pictures, cat hair and general sloppiness:)
