I’m beyond blessed to be living in Florida, where we enjoy warm weather more or less year-round. I love the heat and the humidity, and I’m a lounger. It’s totally not ergonomic, but I always lounge when I’m writing on my laptop, so when we moved to our new house, I made sure I had the lounging space of my dreams.
I pretty much live on my balcony, where the screen keeps the bugs away (well, mostly—the evil no-see-ums still get through in the evening, making me hide indoors). This is one side, where my hubby, sci-fi and fantasy author Dima Zales, was chilling just a moment ago with his water bottle:
And this is where I was writing/Facebooking this morning:
And here is the inside of my actual office, where I am when it rains or I’m getting eaten by no-see-ums:
As you can see, I do have a desk, but I’m only there if I need to do something along the lines of paying bills, doing taxes, or mailing off signed copies. In an effort to combat the negative health effects of all that sitting/lounging, my hubby also got me a treadmill desk, but my knee freaks out when I use it for any length of time due to an old running injury. So yeah, I mostly lounge outside with my laptop, where I am distracted by the occasional deer, turtle, alligator chomping on turtle, wild pigs, birds, giant crab crawling up my screen, raccoon, random Category 5 hurricane, et cetera.
