WANTED: A writing room!

Follow the colorful circles to the comfy blob!
Originally uploaded by Lynda Sandoval
Lynda Sandoval is one of my favorite authors and tonight I peeked at her Flickr page and look what I found! She has the coolest writing room I have ever seen.

I’ve heard of art rooms, craft rooms, writing offices, home offices, etc… but I just love the term “writing room”. I imagine the whole area is filled with the energy of fictional characters. Idea for writers: Wouldn’t it be cool to revamp your writing room every time you start a new book? Make it fit the world you are creating?

I’ve been thinking so much about my novel, I’m going crazy passing the time until the contracts are finished. I miss working on it. Soon I’ll be back in that world with my editor. Hey, maybe I can use this downtime (like I really have downtime?) to redo my bedroom into my writing room!

I just finished a crafty lit (scrapbooking novel) book called “A Page Out of Life” by Kathleen Reid, and now I’m finishing up The Chocolate Lover’s Club by Carole Matthews. As soon as I’m done with that, I’m going to crack open Free Style by Linda Nieves-Powell, followed by the new Jennifer Weiner page-turner, Certain Girls.

I love, love, love to read. I read every free moment I have. Mostly when I’m waiting in long lines, when I’m waiting for dinner to finish cooking, or my paint projects to dry, when I pick up the kids from school and am waiting in the car, right before I go to bed, or sometimes when I just need to step away from my personal chaos and live in someone else’s.

As for right now, I need to go to bed. And I will be dreaming about Lynda’s striking writing room!

P.S. To anyone who aspires to write – honestly, you don’t need a special room at all. Just a paper and pencil, a computer is nice too! If you want to write, just sit down and do it. Even if your chair wobbles, or if your mouse sticks or your keyboard is missing a letter. Don’t let anything get in your way! The fancy surroundings are the candy sprinkles on top!


Love & light,

  1. Me too! A getaway retreat right inside my house away from the kid and the hubby. Lol. I hope you enjoy Free Style which by the way was written for gals just like you…you’ll see!

  2. You convinced me to read a book. I have not read a full book since high school. I’m a stay at home mom who likes to scrap. What book do you suggest?
