Writing space

Posted on: July 27, 2009

I’ve noticed a lot of articles lately about the different writing spaces authors use while creating their masterpieces. The locations are as varied as the personalities. For me, at this moment in time, it is anywhere my laptop is located.

I see light at the end of the tunnel for my room to be finished… but, I’m not not writing while I wait!

Soon (is such a relative word) I will have a room dedicated to writing 99.9% of the time. The .01% is when we have overnight company. The laptop will then become mobile again, back to the kitchen table. I can deal with that!

This 1918 house is always under renovation. In addition, the totally new section added on will always be under construction. My new writing space/guest bedroom is in the original part of the house. And, renovation is slow moving…

We began with replacing the windows with insulated ones in April 2008. All four walls had to be constructed and attached to the wooden planks of a wall (originals did not have a drop of insulation) inside the room.Front Bedroom 4-30-08

We also walled in the two exterior doors. Why they had two exterior doors in one 16’ x 16’ room, just around the corner from the main front door? Beats me!

We installed a new ceiling using slats, then painted the ceiling white. Oh, the walls are now such a delicate “slipper” pink. I love it!

It probably will be another year before I see the wood casing and trim around the door and windows and crown molding and new flooring…

But, I’m moving in there away…
