Rachel Blaufield’s Writing Space
My writing space.
I write in my kitchen, by the fireplace, in my office, and a local coffee shop. It doesn't matter where...the one thing I cannot write without are my noise cancellation headphones.
And munchies. Almonds if I'm being good. Candy if I'm being naughty.
And coffee.

My first Christmas tree.

I didn't grow up celebrating Christmas, so when I had my first serious boyfriend out of college, who did celebrate, I got to decorate a tree!

Our adventure to get the actual tree should have been clue enough that this was going to get silly. I had to buy the biggest, tallest, fullest tree in the lot. It took a team of three to hoist that bad boy up on the car.

There we were, two twenty-something's, driving along like Clark Griswald with a gigantic tree on the roof.

After a getting a workout, dragging the tree into the house, I had to set the mood. Santa hats, Christmas music and hot cocoa.

Then, I commenced decorating. What I didn't realize was you had to decorate all around the tree. Not just the front!

I've never forgotten my first tree, especially recently as I finish Redemption Lane, my latest novel. The story spans several Christmases, and I have definitely been blasting the holiday tunes while writing.

But I haven't been wearing a Santa hat.

Follow Along with Rocking the Holidays tomorrow, December 15th where author Randi Cooley Wilson will be featured on the sites listed below, plus there will be ways to enter the contest daily!

About Rachel Blaufield

Rachel Blaufeld is a social worker/entrepreneur/blogger turned author. Fearless about sharing her opinion, Rachel captured the ear of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and inventing a product, often at the same time. She has also blogged for The Huffington PostModern Mom, andStartupNation.

Turning her focus on her sometimes wild-and-crazy creative side, it only took Rachel two decades to do exactly what she wanted to do—write a fiction novel. Now she spends way too many hours in local coffee shops plotting her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end lusciously.

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two dogs. Her obsessions include running, coffee, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.
