I love seeing pics of the surroundings in which the writers whose work I love create their works. It’s energizing for some reason. So I thought, hmmm…why not take a snapshot of my own writing space? I did, and the pic you see is the result. When I step back and look at it, my space looks cozy but rather dark and it is dominated by that one-eyed monster perched atop my desk. If you’ve ever fought the tyranny of the blank white page you can imagine what it feels like to stare into a blank white page on this screen. It’s great for doing layouts and keeping multiple apps open and running. But writing in front of this thing is really different from writing in a composition book or on a typewriter or on my iPad or my smaller laptop. It’s more fatiguing. So…the pic is useful. It shows me some things I might want to change about my writing space. What about your writing space? Have you taken a picture so you can pull back to see how it works for–or against–your writing? Might be worth a try!
