Nicholson Baker on working at the kitchen table:


  I work all over the house, and in the yard when it’s warm—and often at restaurants and coffee shops.  But my favorite place is to write is at our kitchen table, especially when the sun comes angling in. The refrigerator turns on and off, the wall clock ticks, the cat jingles her food in the saucer as she crunches it, and there’s a nice shine to whatever fruit is in the bowl.


The kitchen table has always been a favorite spot of mine, too…

Via Write Place, Write Time, a Tumblr where writers share their workspaces. (Thx, @largeheartedboy!)
