I'd love to. Which is why I've kicked myself for not purchasing a laptop with a good battery life. Though I shouldn't be too hard on myself--I really didn't expect to write anywhere but in the comfort of my home back then. Yet in that constant comfort zone, I sometimes feel like I'm on mental autopilot, which isn't conducive to writing. No surprise that I write better when summer comes around and I take my laptop to a shady spot in the garden. But again, can't stay unconnected for long.
A change of environment provides new stimuli for the brain, of course. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those authors who can travel often and write. If I weren't restricted by the limits of my computer, I'd write in just about any comfortable, peaceful outdoor place or even a coffee shop. I admit I feel a surge of envy whenever I see a group of people tapping away at their keyboards in those shops. I assume there are places that allow you to bring your cable, though I haven't done a serious search for those. Libraries? Honestly, they make me restless.
So I'm curious about other authors. Are you house-bound or are you able to write wherever you like? And if you're lucky enough to fall into the second category, where do you write? Or, perhaps, the haven of your home suits you just fine. :-)
