Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
I must say that this post has inspired me to look for a new office chair! I have a normal cheap task chair now that I only bought because it was red. What is it about red and writers....? Anyway, I put an ad on Craigslist and am looking for a new one! You are right that the is something that gets the creative juices flowing when you plop down in the right chair. And just like finding the perfect keyboard for a computer you won't know until you do it!
Very cool!Yeah, I really wish I had a better "writing" environment. I mean, I feel that, I have all the objects in my office to make my office the perfect writing sanctuary, but the words have chosen, by volume, where they prefer me to write, and that is downstairs, reclining in my big red chair...
I've added a picture of the chair, in all its glory:)
Deek, I love the red chair. Need something comfortable like this. I find I have a hard time position the typewriters on my lap, though. Any tips?
Sure, Crystal. I find that typers with closed bottoms are the most comfortable on my lap. Hermes 3000, SC Skyriter and Hermes Baby have all spent a lot of time on my lap on that chair. In fact, almost all of my latest novel was drafted with my Hermes 3000 in that chair.If you don't have a typer like that, then I recommend a lap desk. I tested out several of them before I found the one that worked best for me. I ended up settling on a cheap one from Target. It has a cushion on one side and a large kidney-shaped wood surface on the other. I frequently type letters on my Olympia SM3 resting on this lapdesk.
