If you’re a believer that one’s surroundings impact their state of mind then this space explains a lot. I don’t have an office in our house. I have a lovely little room that is a sanctuary for reading but it’s so small there is no room for a desk. Thus, the dining room table is my writing space. Oddly, I’m not bothered by this. I face our small front porch which allows me to see the Japanese maple on our front lawn dancing when the wind blows but also lets me indulge the Mrs. Kravitz side of my personality by keeping track of all the goings-on in our neighborhood (and there are plenty, let me tell you).
Here are some marvelously divergent places that would be wonderful for different kinds of writing.
Chris Bohjalian type New England stories
Great dramas with a focus on the structure
Gothic, horror, tragedy -what else?!
British literature, dahling
Forget writing- I want to live here
I’d like to hear where you write. Is it in your home? Is it a wide open space? A kitchen table? Pristine? Cluttered? Do you sit inside or outside? Do you do best with visual stimulation or prefer a blank wall? Share please!
