    For writing I have 3 places, 2 of which are outdoors, that really help get the creative juices flowing. Of the three, this one is probably the most relaxing. Anyone know where that path leads?

    Da beach? Sometimes just leaving the problem on my desk is the best way to solve it. By the timeI return from my sojourn, the answer there and just needs to written out.

    In my studio/office at my desktop computer. Gets me in the mindset to work. Plus for audio editing and other work I do, I love a nice desk, chair, real keyboard & mouse and screens. Can't focus if I'm crammed into a coffee shop or outside with a laptop!

    Depends on what work youre going to be doing. If I need to be creative or check emails or do graphic design then I will go in the backyard. I cant do that with things I need to be super-focused for though. I would say I'm most productive alone in my room with a air purifier running quietly and maybe some jazz.

    That looks very relaxing, gotta say.
    I'm usually doing my job anywhere, just need my laptop, internet connection and some electricity to keep the battery alive.

    It really depends. I tend to migrate from room to room. Right now my home office is my best spot because it the warmest room in the house. The dining room in the summer because it's very roomy.

    Mattblex,
    That place is really incredible.

    I work the best at my home at my office desk, caffes etc are annoying me, I like to have full concentration on what I am doing, if I need to go to caffee I would put my earphones on I don't pay attention to other people

    I was going to say from the first picture, "Oooooooooo, a beach!" :-) I do my best work with a cup of black coffee and peace and quiet.

    I usually write from my home office. I just put on some inspirational "work music" and get to it. I find that`s the best way for me to focus on what I am doing.

    Kitchen table. Public library. Local coffee shop. Porch. In that order.

    I research at the library but people act out and bother me with their noises and conversations. If I am too comfortable I drift off to sleep. So the couch is out of the question.
    The bedside table by the window has the best light and most robust 802.11g rolling.
    Table by the window it is.

    P.s. the front room is too close to the mailboxes and the halllulia chorus of dog barking when anyone comes beyond the street to unlock the gate.

    Definitely my home office. After years of working from the dining room amid the chaos of family life, it's such a luxury to have my own private space. Well, as private as it can be with two dogs nestled on each side of my chair! :wink:
