Where Writers Write

I titled this post "Where Writers Write," thinking that in addition to sharing an encouraging article (that I sent to my teen writers' group this morning) from Writer's Digest -- 5 Writing Lessons Inspired by Famous Writers (which talks about Mark Twain's cabin, Walden Pond, Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House, and Jack London’s ranch) -- I would tack on a couple more interesting/favorite writers' havens, such as E.B. White's writing space:


But then I decided to Google the phrase "Where Writers Write" and found all sorts of intriguing stuff:

This Pinterest page

"The Importance of Place: Where Writers Write and Why" from Poets & Writers Magazine

"A Writer's Room" from The New York Times 

"The Daily Routine of Famous Writers" at Brain Pickings

Maybe the best: Photos of Writers and Their Typewriters (I'm swooning.)

Something I can relate to a little better: couches, spare bedrooms, stolen corners: The Millions: "Where We Write."

"13 Quirky Workplaces of Famous Writers"

A Tumblr page

A Pinterest page full of dreams

"Learn From the Greats: 7 Writing Habits of Amazing Writers"

Have fun!

Hmmm ... Interesting, Karen. Coincidentally, I posted on the same day a link-up about people's writing spaces. I invite you to come on over and take a look and if you are so inclined, participate, too! I'm also having a giveaway. The link-up is all the way at the bottom of this post. Hope to see you there!
