1. Aren’t Gothic novels and Romantic poetry supposed to be written in garrets? Probably the closest thing in a modern house is the attic. Although I suppose writing Romantic poetry could also be done in the St Nicholas’ graveyard.

    My writing is done on my laptop, wherever it happens to be – on the desk in the walkway at home, the desk at my day job, at cafes or coffeeshops or places we might be staying at like the lovely Inn Waimea we stayed at recently on Kaua’i.

    Have also written stories, poetry and songs on my durable old Palm Tungsten 3 PDA. Beats fancy smartphones since there’s no temptation to check Twitter or browse the internet!

    1. Yes, there are certainly more distractions today than Dickens might have had in his Swiss Chalet!
