I’m sitting on the floor watching my 3-year-old daughter do gymnastics class and keeping my baby daughter occupied. I have a file with me so I can work on ideas for my National Volunteer Week article. I’m jotting stuff down and flipping through papers.

This little boy comes over and starts to try to play with me. His mother tells him to leave me alone because I’m working. I said, “No, it’s okay.”

Then it hit me. I WAS working! I was writing! AND watching gymnastics AND giving my baby Cheerios and toys.

So I wasn’t sitting at a computer at a coffee house or a fancy resort or at the library or at a home office.

You can write anywhere. Beautiful!

Where do you write? When do you write? How do you occupy your kids while you write?
