Writing spaces

Where do you write?


Liz Fenwick http://www.lizfenwick.blogspot.com/ recently posted about her new writing space, and it reminded me of a fascinating collection of the work places of well known writers here: http://books.guardian.co.uk/writersrooms


Which only goes to prove one thing - every writer is unique.




Those are post-it stickers on the wall of Will Self's office.


Girl or Bloke? You guess.



Julie Myerson's cat has her own bed to distract from the monitor and keyboard. Not sure about the glass table though.

What's playing on my YouTube right now? Frank Sinatra. Once Upon a Time. [Just in case you thought romance was only at the end of our fingertips.] http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=IkeW-jUfiJU

Crikey, that's one hell of a lot of post-it notes.

Ditto what Debs said! The middle one is very atmospheric.....so where's your work space?

Thanks ladies. I am tidying up today in the post-submission slump, before launching into the next masterpiece, so will try and drag out the camera.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I don't think I could work in any of those - maybe the middle one, at a push. I'd also need many more books around me.

Will Self's office is seriously scary. Have you noticed how NEATLY those post-it notes are stuck to the wall? I wonder if he used a ruler to make sure they were equidistant - or a spirit level to check that the tops were all perfectly horizontal *g* (My first thought on seeing it was: that office belongs to a bloke, probably with Asperger's.)

Go and have some fun and enjoy getting out of the post-sub slump. :o)
