Do you have a special place where you write? I usually find myself snuggled on the end of the couch, laptop balancing on the couch arm or burning in my lap, while my husband sits next to me watching Seinfeld.
Now, I love me some Seinfeld, but it can be quite distracting when your trying to write in rhyme or craft a climatic scene in a novel. We do have a desk in the house, but it resides in our toddler's bedroom (which is a huge problem, because the only time I CAN write is during her naptime or bedtime.)
So the other day I was staring at a corner of my bedroom, the corner that was supposed to be made into a reading bench, but never was and it hit me . . .
I can turn that corner into my writing nook!
And so begins PROJECT: WRITING NOOK.
So . . . what does one need in a writing nook? Off the top of my head, I can only think of two things.
1. A DESK -- to write on. I watched Craigslist like a hawk and finally found this shabby little number.
2. A FILE CABINET -- to organize manuscripts. Hubby had this extra one lying around his office, so he painted it a gray/blue for me.
Other than that, I don't know what I need or even want. So here's the big question . . . what do you suggest? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think is a must for a writer's space. How do you organize/keep track of things?
