Creativity's Workshop

Taming and Training Your Creativity to Write Abundantly


Greetings From My New Writing Room

Me sitting at my writing desk surrounded by a modicum of writing paraphernalia.

Moi in new writing habitat feeling very relaxed and creative.

The new year usually signals new beginnings, but for me 2014 signals a new house!

If you’ve been following my journey over the past month or two, you’ll know that my husband and I have just moved into a lovely little place within walking distance of the beach. If that isn’t enough, I now have my very own writing room (see picture above).

In typical writer fashion, probably about 1/3 of my belongings were books. It took me a couple of days to find homes for all of them, but I’m proud to say they’re all snuggly in their little alcoves now. The only bad news is I’ve filled up almost every space in our three bookcases. Looks like I’ll be sticking to library books and e-books for a while.

I can’t tell you what a difference it is to finally have a dedicated space for my writing and my books. I feel like I can now get down to business and start churning out some words!

Of course, not everything has gone exactly to plan. Yesterday afternoon I launched full-scale talcum powder attacks on the ants that insist on walking across my desk and over my computer. I seem to have won the first battle, but we shall see how things go over the coming days.

But that’s a minute wrinkle in my brilliant new writing room.

I’ve got lots of exciting plans for the new year. Stay tuned over the next few weeks to see news of my new projects!

What about you? How has your year started out? What plans do you have to make 2014 a great writing year?
