Writers' Rooms

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Oh the things I find when I'm on another track entirely.

A Guardian feature called Writers' Rooms. They range form the almost depressingly (for me, at least) tidy to cluttered spaces that make my work area look depressingly tidy. It's interesting to see what inspires other writers.

I would love a space that overlooks a park or something architecturally interesting, but at this point that's not to be. And even if I had such a space the weather in this locale would force me to keep the window shade closed for much of the year. So I'll console myself with my shelf of toys below my secondary monitor and pictures just below the ceiling level. The rest of the space is taken up by shelves.

Before I happened across this article I'd come to the decision (again!) that I needed to do another purge in the office. Yeah, as if that will happen. I should do it while things are in a bit of a lull, but I also should spend more time on the works in progress. But it's so damned hot that perhaps cleaning is the better option. I'll give it some thought.
