In the new Chapters/Indigo on-line community, Gail Anderson-Dargatz posted about The Vancouver Writers and Readers Festival website series on BC writers’ rooms. She noted that her writing room is a hallway.
I have not one but two perfect offices, I confess. This is the one in Mexico. My office (“bunker”) in Ontario is every bit as nice: smaller, but overlooking woods and meadow. If only cubic feet equaled writing output.
Gail Anderson-Dargatz pointed out that the Guardian has a series on writers’ rooms as well. I love seeing writers’ offices. I especially loved the poster on Sarah Waters‘ wall: “Keep calm and carry on.”
I loved seeing a photo of you at your desk in Mexico. Thanks for the link to writers’ rooms too. I had to look at every single one of them under the pretext of research!
Sandra, thanks so much for the link to the Guardian story – I spent a few happy hours looking at all the different offices and realizing that my own messy office was pretty much the norm. :-)
My own office began with a dream.
A corner of a basement can be a great place to write.
I love seeing where other writers work. I have visions of a dream office someday, but for now, my little corner in the basement will have to do. :-)
