Samantha Goodman writes Life with Smalls, a humorous mommy blog on the glorious, mundane, and gross moments she has experienced while raising two small children. Check out her comfy Blogger Space below.
I write on my bed.
Sometimes I write in my bed.
I do this primarily because it is one of the few places in the house where I can excuse myself from the usual chaos, and get some down time. I’d love to have a real office, but that isn’t possible right now, so my bed is my desk.
Usually the bed is not made and things look a lot more disheveled. I cleaned up and made it presentable just for you, lest you think I live in a total pigsty. Clearly I have internalized my Grandmother telling me to “always wear clean underwear,” and now, apparently, I apply that idea to my writing space…hmm…I’m realizing that may be possible “Black Couch” material, so, note to self.
I was a screenwriter for many years, and while I don’t have time anymore to write all those hours everyday, I started Life with Smalls ao that I don’t go completely insane raising my kids.
My bed is comfortable, it’s spacious, and it’s quiet. Sometimes too much so, because instead of writing, I occasionally fall asleep.
Perhaps I’d be more prolific if I actually had a desk. Perhaps I’d be more prolific if I didn’t have young children.
Well, too late now…
