The Shortform

My Place of Zen

Day Three of The Shortform Sprint

My favourite place to write is my kitchen table at home in Indonesia. Made from local teak, its tawny brown tones match the rest of the house.

I sit at one end in silence, hoping that I can get all my words out before my daughter wakes and wants to watch Cocomelon. I’m not always successful.
