Where Do You Write?

Like a lot of writers, I'm curious how other writers do things. I am not a writer who can go to a coffee shop or bookstore cafe and write. I wish I could, but I end up looking at everyone else and eavesdropping. The eavesdropping is good for dialogue, but not necessarily for my story.

Since we moved into our new house, I finally have my own writing room, but I rarely get to use it. Since it's in the attic it's much too hot to use right now. Even though I have an air conditioner up there, by the time I remember to turn it on I either don't have the time to write when it's cool, or I forget about turning it on all together. Plus one of the main problems right now is that we have bats in the attic:(

Also, I can't leave my four year old in the living room or playroom while I'm up on the third floor.

I set up a desk in my son's playroom with my laptop hoping to get more writing done. And I'm writing a lot more than I was. I leave my WIP open in Word and write when I can during the day. It doesn't always add up to much but at least I'm getting something down.

Are you picky about where you write? Are there places you can't write or love to write?
