I just got my Mac back from the computer hospital after his power supply died three weeks ago. Because I didn’t have my computer in my office writing space I didn’t feel much like writing. I tried writing longhand in my notebook, using the company laptop at home and in various coffee shops around town and every other good writing space I could think of but nothing felt very comfortable. When you find your favorite writing time and space, (for me it is mornings before work in my office on my desktop iMac) it’s hard to create a new favorite writing place.
Have you created a special writing space? What makes it ideal?
Today, envision what your perfect writing place would look like? What would you see and hear from your window? What would you have to do to make this ideal writing place happen? I’ve always envisioned having an office/library lined with books with a library ladder, a roaring fireplace and a view of the ocean, a river or the mountains. Of course there’s rich leather chairs, reading lamps and a place to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee. Now get back to work!
