At Electric Authors we're a varied bunch writing everything from crime to humour to self-help. The way we work is also as varied as the places we work. So three EA bloggers have decided to band together and share where we work on todays post.

Over the years I’ve worked in all sorts of places: at our last house I actually had the luxury of an office. OK, it was only 6 by 8 foot, but it’s amazing how much you can cram in.
When we moved to the current house I was in the middle of writing a book: no time to unpack – I just set up shop in the corner of the sitting/dining area, and although not originally intended, have been there ever since. My partner gritted his teeth and set up a desk unit and some cupboard units that he felt he could live with as furniture, and it’s perfect. I have a view into the front garden where I can watch the fish and frogs frolicking in the pond, spot any visitors arriving, and it’s next to a radiator so the whippets (when I’m not sharing my typing chair with them) can happily curl up on a raised crate next to it and keep me company. They quite enjoy the doggy TV too, as the view through the window has become known.
There are other things to look at too but that's for me to tell you about in another post.

In my previous house I wrote in the conservatory, which had a concrete floor and was very good for Icelandic atmosphere in the winter, and a tropical rainforest ambience in the summer. The glass roof meant that I couldn't see the computer screen if the sun was shining, and the spines of all my books faded away. Since we moved I can now write in any weather; however, there are distractions. If I don't draw the curtains at night there are foxes and badgers. And during the day there's that birdseed feeder just outside the window...
