I know, it's hard to believe, it's a post about writing.

    Do you use your phone for writing notes?
    I do.  Quite often, when I'm not stalking on the in-ter-net I use my phone for writing notes, reading, or staring at pictures of freedom during my lunch. Rarely, do I use the apparatus for calling people.
    That is where this story begins.
   About a week ago, I was sitting minding my own business, in an office, when someone sits next to me and initiates a conversation with the person across from, now, us. I don't make a move to be part of the conversation ~ Just going to point out, I'm a serious introvert, if I don't have to involve myself, boy howdy, I don't~  So, I remained out of the conversation, and kept tapping away on my phone creating a world you all will read about sooner or later, when the person says "People today don't know how to interact."

     Was that directed at me? I still don't know, I kept writing. I'm telling you it's easy for me to ignore people. Wait, maybe he was talking about me, lol.
      It happened again when I went camping, by camping I mean I have an RV with electricity, you know for my laptop. I was sitting, minding my own business, again, tapping away on the keys of my laptop, occasionally looking up to see the beach, its beauty and listen to the waves roll in, OK, to drink wine. I was camping ;) There was a  group of people walking by (not uncommon, it's a camping area) when they stopped short of the RV next to mine. People often stop and check out other RVs or campsites, there are some seriously cool ideas you can find by snooping around. And because I know this, I'm not paying much attention to them, until one of them says "Could you imagine being at the beach and sitting in front of a computer?"  YES.
   Just going to mention, I finished A Curse Revisited sitting there.
   What do these bits of people mean? Use earbuds.

Where are your writing places?
Do you have any special places?
