Where do you like to read or write?
I love to read just as much as I love to write, and I have a few favorite reading spots. I always get a few pages in just before I go to sleep, but when I settle in for a long reading period I love my recliner. I can prop my reader on a pillow and fall into the story.
When I write, it is always at my desk computer. I like its location with a large window to stare out of when I’m formulating the next scene. But, if I had anywhere in the world to write? That’s an easy one. I would sit against a wall of Peel Castle on the Isle of Man. I don’t know if there would be a good spot to see the water as well as feel the castle wall on my back, but when I get there I’ll let you know.
I am still working through The Manx and had hoped to have it published by now. Yet, it has always been missing something that keeps it under wraps, and I know it is missing a trip to the island itself. As an author I want to know first hand what the air tastes like, how the trees sound in the wind, and feel the stones bite into my feet. These are the things that will breath life into the book.

I learnt reading you,.how well descriptions can be…
Good work of yours
Reading can happen anywhere, though I do like to do it before I go to sleep at night. Hope all is well! Commenting in November…
I love reading anywhere with a lot of natural light… And I have a favourite comfy sofa.
I like to look out the window while I’m writing and watch the hummingbirds and butterflies. They don’t distract me, but give me a moment to think. Good luck with your novel. It takes time and then one day, it’s there all finished and beautiful.
If I am in a room definitely a large window is a must. Unfortunately, my blinds stay down because the room I write in faces the street and it’s an active neighborhood. Wishing the best with your novel and finishing. Happy IWSG! Juneta @ Writer’s Gambit
