writing space

In the forum at Deep Magic (see link to the right), someone asked how do we claim our writing space. Here's my reply...

My desk is in the living room on the opposite wall from the TV, and across from the dining room. It's right at the 'hub' of the house.So I'm in the perfect spot for everyone to interrupt for some important job only mom can do, like let the dog out, fix a snack, or answer a life-and-death question like "where's my socks?"

To keep my focus on my writing instead of my surroundings, I hunch over, grind my teeth, and growl. Occasionally I have conversations with my characters. Out loud.

I used to try to write after everyone went to bed, but my health suffered. Old age...
