Now that I'm back in the USA and safely ensconced in my house, I've upgraded from "writing in a jungle" (a not wholly-unpleasant situation, to be fair) to "I own furniture!". Also, I have Internet which, naturally, lead to instant productivity downgrades. But I have kicked the collective asses of the Internet horde, and punched my way through the wall and into a sexy office setup, which I here present. But first? A pretentious quote.
"A writer's office is an extension of his personality, and an expression of his writing voice by different means." -Anonymous. (It was me!)
Stick with me for a whirlwind tour! Don't worry: if you're bored, there's a cat.

I don't necessarily do all my writing in this chair, but this is representative of my ideal writing situation. I just need a netbook, wireless, and a loyal cat.
