Welcome to another installment of TNBBC's Where Writers Write!
Where Writers Write is a weekly series that will feature a different author every Wednesday as they showcase their writing spaces using short form essay, photos, and/or video. As a lover of books and all of the hard work that goes into creating them, I thought it would be fun to see where the authors roll up their sleeves and make the magic happen.
This is Gert Loveday.
Gert is the author of Writing is Easy, an Australian comic novel about the writing world.
Where Gert Loveday Writes
Yes, I'm sorry to say it really does look like this most of the time. If I sit at the desk to write, I just put everything on the floor. Every now and then I tidy it all up and am filled with a new sense of purpose and direction – for a while.
You'll see a music stand to the right with my computer on it. I like to write standing up, which I find puts my hands in a good position on the sloping keyboard and means I don't get an ache between my shoulder blades.
You'll also see my yoga chair, which serves the double purpose of a seat and something to hang upside down on for a good stretch.
And here is my cat Celie who is always close by, and as you can see in my author photo, helps with yoga too.
