When it’s time to write, I hide away in my own little
world…a magical place that gives life to words.
And it doesn’t hurt that the doors to my office have very durable locks,
making it the best place for me to write in my busy home. Knowing that this space is just for me allows
me to be an “impassioned author”, without interruption.
And when it came to furnishing my little haven, I decided
on a comfy high back chair, since I would be spending a lot of time in it (not
to mention that it made me feel like I was in control).I also needed a computer desk for my desktop
PC as well as an actual desk.This
combination would provide a little nook for me to work in and afford lots of
space for organizing my notes and conducting other tasks.
Every time I go into my office to write it’s like a
writers retreat. I can escape into a
world that I am creating or just enjoy a little peace and quiet. And though I have noted several items that
are needed in my writing process, I would be far less productive without my
pre-writing notebooks AND my pink fuzzy writing socks! They are as important to me as Superman’s
cape. I often stash my notebooks in
different places (purse, car, truck, work etc.), just in case I am overcome by
a need to record something before I forget.
Then when I get to my office I can revisit those notes and get back on
track or take my writing in an entirely new direction. And the socks, well, (Did I mention that
they’re pink and fuzzy?) they are warm and comfortable and my own personal
rendition of a “thinking cap”.
