Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf when she gives such great advice? I am relieved to discover I require only money and my room. I have undertaken a whole-house remodeling project, which includes knocking down walls, putting in structural beams, opening the floor plan, redesigning, and repurposing rooms to better fit 21st-century life. At first, we slated the workspace to go in the loft, but plans change, needs change, and the vision changed. The non-negotiable office we moved from the loft into the current living room.
My office will accommodate two floor-to-ceiling bookcases, loaded with my books, an oak library table, a printer, my favorite laptop, and a beautiful view. It is a slow process. I split my days between making necessary decisions: flooring, tiles, wall color, area rugs, and finding time to write. This week, work is winning.
Truthfully, I can write anywhere and trust the words will flow. My hotel accommodations have limitations, and I daydream, visualizing my new retreat. It is a delicious and decadent feeling contemplating my dedicated office. I need to call my contractor.
Do you have a dedicated writing space?
Keep on writing.
