Creating the Physical Space in which to Write
I N S P I R I N G S P A C E S
One of the things we talked about in my college classroom recently is not only WHEN we find time to write, but WHERE we find time to write. I’m very lucky that our home came with a beautiful office that we have tweaked a little with paint and a chandelier. (My husband said, “You took down the fan for a chandelier? We have enough chandeliers in the house.” To which I replied, “You can never have too many chandeliers.”)
Finding the TIME to write has its own challenges, but part of it, for me, lies in having a space I don’t mind spending time in to do my work. Therefore, I had to make my office “feel good” and be that space where it can be quiet and pretty and inspirational.
Anyway, these are photographs of my home office and the space where I write. It inspires me.
And, please, by all means, let me know if you beg to differ on the chandelier issue.

Never too many chandeliers! I can’t get even one up in my house so you are so LUCKY!
