But not like my Uncle who was trawler man! ;). It is lovely day.
This kind of thing makes me think of David Niven saying that he liked to write outside but couldn't if there were any distractions: distractions like a plane going over or the sun coming out. So his preferred location was in a corner, facing a large hedge. It was the only way.
With apologies for minor name dropping - I once met John Junkin at the BBC and I wanted to ask him about 'A Hard Day's Night', but he wanted to talk about writing in his garden shed. He spent most days in the 60s & 70s in that shed, apparently.
I think I'd find trying to write outside too distracting.Bad enough where I am with the view out of the window.Luckily it is quiet so I can write rather than watch.
I always get distracted by the garden birds. Their lives are more interesting than mine.
Russell Davies has this Delicious link to a re-make of George Bernard Shaw's "Shabby Romantic" writing shed - with fold-away day bed, writing table, and a rotating base so you can follow the sun:http://www.scottsofthrapston.co.uk/nationaltrust/writersretreat.asp
Terence/DavidI still remember the fantastic interview with John Junkin in Q in the late eighties when he said his biggest inspiration was pinning a red final demand above the typewriter.
Interesting: Eddie Braben, chief writer for Morecambe & Wise, also once said in interview that he worked with a gas bill by his typewriter for inspiration!
