Where do you write?

This may be a simple question for some and for others it may vary, but that’s why I wanted to throw it out there.

  • Are you the type of person who has to write in the same place whenever you write, and if so, where is that place?
  • OR, are you the type of person who can write whenever and wherever. and if so, where is your favorite place to write?

Feel free to use pinbacks if you want to show pictures of your desk, office, special chair, swimming pool wherever!

For me, I usually write anywhere. When I wrote the first book in The Water Travelers series, Heir of the Unknown, it was primarily at my desk inside my room. And let me tell you guys, my room is freaking badass. Unfortunately we’re currently renting my house so I don’t get to be in it, nor did I take any pictures before moving (idiot). But, you can see a glimpse of it in the background from The Curse of Senapin picture below and the view I had!

But now I kind of tend to write all over. At a desk, a table, in a hammock, a coffee shop (Coffee shop has always been on the list) outside, on the floor, in my bed. I don’t really need a specific spot because, for me, the world exists in the writing, not where I’m writing. Don’t get me wrong though, the view and atmosphere can change everything!! Writing in a beautiful place only amplifies things I feel! But that’s my opinion, what’s yours?

Going Away

No, I’m not personally going away, but a lot of my close friends are. The Back-to-School season is here and I’ve already said goodbye to one of my brothers. It’s an odd period, goodbye’s are hard but I think what’s even harder is knowing that it won’t be like this forever–this as in always hanging out, being minutes away, having the time to spend with friends whenever and wherever. Now, I say that with a touch of irony because even though I’ve gotten older that’s something I still do all the time, I just get sad about the days when that may come to an end. I hate not seeing friends, it drives me insane and is the biggest thing that crushes my spirit. So, in the midst of this Back-to-School season, I just wanted to reflect upon that emotion and continue to hope and pray that I’ll remain as close and consistent with my best friends.

Your Favorite Sword Fighter?

I’d like to host a question of the day asking who is your all time favorite sword fighter in a book series? (Sorry, Link, books only.)


For me, I’d have to say, Aragorn, from the good ol Lord of the Rings.

Aragorn is just an all around, good guy bad ass leader who knows how to fight and when to fight. When he shows up you know things are going to work out and you know he’s going to put others before himself. I love how he’s fearless and is willing to put his life on the line for others, and when he does, his fighting skills pull through for him. I also love the fact that he kind of starts out as an outlaw and then becomes a king. He uses a great deal of wisdom as he progresses and when those who aren’t willing to reason strike, he strikes back showing them their mistake. He’s awesome. Therefore, such is why Aragorn is my favorite sword fighter (swordsman).



Sir Gawain from The Squires Tale Series!!!! OH MY GOSH. YES. I forgot about him because I haven’t started the next book in the series yet. But he would definitely tie, if not surpass Aragorn. Gawain, along with humor and impressive sword fighting, uses a great deal of humor as well. I absolutely love hearing the mumbles of the character and the internal thoughts. Plus, his fighting skills rise with the sun, which is pretty freaking cool.


Your turn!
