I'd love to hear about everyone's writing space. I'm moving into a new place that has a second bedroom, which I'm going to use as my office. I'm pumped for it. I bought this amazing, gigantic U-shaped desk a little over a year ago when I moved into the place I'm currently leaving. I planned to turn the garage into my office since my house was tiny. Well, it was always freezing cold or stuffy hot so I never used this magnificent desk.
But not now! Now the desk has its own room. My dad and his fantastic abilities rearranged the desk making it an L-shape and it fits perfectly in the room. There's space for my writing books, notebooks, posters of Gerard Butler on the wall (inspiration people!) and lots of pink things. Oh! And my leopard print papisan chair for brainstorming ;) Not napping (it's for my dog Rufus to nap on)! I'm jazzed to have a creative haven, instead of always using my computer on my bed. I've heard that TVs and computers and the like in bedrooms are a no-no because it hurts the level of restfulness of your sleep. A bedroom shouldn't have those kind of distractions I guess.
So, I've eliminated distractions in the bedroom (hmm...that doesn't quite sound right...some distractions aren't bad! :p) and created a distraction/workspace. We'll see how this little experiment goes.
Where do you write? Do you have a room dedicated as your office or a makeshift space that changes depending on where the rest of your family is? Do you have any tips on colors or objects that spur creativity?
Also, if you have a moment, check out this site. It shows the writing spaces of lots of authors. Makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one with a messy desk! I think Sherrilyn Kenyon's is my fave, on the last page. I WANT THAT CABINET!! I have a feeling Eli and I would go to blows over it...
