I had another blog post planned for today, but after seeing this fantastic picture over on Everything Books & Authors Facebook page, I simply couldn’t resist. Isn’t it great! I love how it looks so airy and spacious, yet very personal will artefacts and cultural memorabilia so carefully placed. And you can’t help but notice how original and fun the ladder leading up to circular bookcase is. Whoever designed this should be applauded. I’ve made it my mission to
steal copy this design when I’m rich and famous. OK, so I may be dreaming, but a guy can be optimistic, right?
And it got me thinking about work space in general. How do you guys work? Do you need large sash windows overlooking a meadow … a peaceful garden … a busy street … or perhaps you prefer to lock yourself behind four walls with the curtains fully closed? Perhaps you don’t have a specific room, but just a corner of the dining room table.
Do you need to be organised or can you work in utter chaos … or organised chaos as I call it. If I’ve made a mess, I still swear that I know where things are if I need them. As I’ve already mentioned in earlier blog posts, I like to get out of the house and write in my local Costa – it just gets me away from unnecessary distractions. But I often daydream of writing in my own office, looking out of the window when I’m a little stuck for ideas, rain pitter pattering down the window and … complete silence.
What about you guys, do let me know!
