So on this bright new NaNo month morning–first day! Yeah!–Summer is hosting a “Show Your Space Blogfest.” What a cool and simple idea to get to know your fellow writers better, right?
I call it the final frontier because it is the last room in the house to get cleaned after moving in (hmmm….could it be that it actually got cleaned up, if only a bit, for this here blogfest? Enquiring minds would like to know, wouldn’t they?).
Actually, because of the newness, it’s kind of clinical and generic right now, and certainly doesn’t have the it-factor and joie de vivre of my last writing space, which doubled as a music recording studio. Give it time.
I find that the writing space that works best for me can’t be manufactured or put together in one day. Rather, it becomes a potpourri of various elements, notes and pictures tacked up, forgotten reminders pasted nearby to add to the general ambiance, nicknacks of inspiration crowding the space.
