I’e already fessed up. I laze back in an arm chair when I write, and I use a 55″ TV as a monitor.
That way, I’m both comfortable and able to see as many words as possible on my screen—for example, both my work in progress and a Web page.
To get you started, here is a new twist—some more examples involving famous writers:
- Truman Capote (photo) liked to write in bed or on a couch while puffing away in a cigarette and sipping sherry. Won’t work for me. I’m a tobacco-hating teetotaler.
- John Cheever wrote a lot in his undies.
- Francine Prose wears her husbands pajama pants and writes facing a wall.
- Eudora Welty, perhaps of a similar mind, faced “the blank surface of her wood dresser” to avoid distractions, according to Trust Essays, a term paper writing service that compiled the information here.
- Ernest Hemingway would knock it off for the day after doing 500 words. Hmm. Perhaps “Papa” could have used Word or something else with a word counter, so he could spend less time counting and more time writing.
- William Faulkner drank whiskey on the job.
- Thomas Wolfe was so tall he could use a fridge top as a desk.
Detail: TeleRead will not run ads or sponsored content from term paper services, and normally I don’t like to give them free publicity, either.
