Road Trip Wednesday #17: Where Do You Do It?

Welcome to our 17th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the question on your own blog and leave a link in the comments. We'll be adding our own links here throughout the day!

Topic #16: Where's Your Favorite Place to Read and/or Write?

So name your spot. The bedroom? The backyard? Inside a nifty "compubody sock" like our friend in the picture? (Yup, it's a real thing...)

Lee: "I can go up there and shut the door and block out everything..."

Michelle: "I am not ashamed to admit this, although I’m well aware that it’s the most stereotypical thing in the entire world to do, but..."

Kristin: "I generally prefer the quiet dignity of privacy over the nose of curious paparazzi..."

Kaitlin: "From grade school upward, masses of notebooks and regular books were stacked beside my bed..."

Amanda: "The papasan has witnessed many ink stains, drink spills, the occasional tear, and even a few tantrums (mostly my own)..."

Kate: "The beach, where we are pretty much the only people for miles on either side..."

Kirsten: "I also have a portable hammock and some lounge chairs, but I prefer sprawling on the ground..."

Road Trip Song of the Week:

This Is How We Do It, by Montell Jordan
