Writers are like cats. Apart from being aloof and independent, we’re incredibly territorial; if you’ve ever wandered around an author’s home, you’ve likely noticed that one of the rooms looks particularly well lived-in, or one of the chairs has a deeper indent than the rest of them, or there’s a cluster of coffee mugs collecting around a cozy hearth.
My writing environment is not so comfortable.
I call my space: “The Cell”.
Speaking of the chokey, did you notice that thumb-tack in the wall beside the computer screen? Sometimes I pull it out and push it back in a few times if I’m feeling bored or tired, but since that’s more boring than anything I was already doing, I usually tell myself to stop wasting time and get back to work. It’s depressing, but effective.
To you my writing space may seem scarier than anything in my novels, but one person’s cell is another person’s palace. Peace, quiet, and partitions—I’ll take that over a Starbucks any day. And as nice as it would be to have a private writing hut or my own personal caravan, I’m content where I am. Plus, let’s be honest: the padded walls are probably for my own good.
