A time and a place

At one of our meetings we discussed where and when we write, and it seems that people are planning plots, conjuring up characters, and drafting dialogue all over the place. On buses and trains, in parks and libraries, walking to work, driving home, in the kitchen, under the covers in the middle of the night... almost anywhere except at a neatly prepared desk with a blank piece of paper on it.

So why is it I *dream* of having a neat desk and a piece of paper?

I don't know, anon. Maybe neatness and creativity just don't go together, and all us creative types can do is dream of neatness? :)
