UPDATE | Summer Writing Space
"WRITERS ARE DANGEROUS PEOPLE
Never take a writer for granted.
They are snipers armed with words.
They know how to aim with sentences.
How to fire with paragraphs, and
how to immortalize their kills in verse."
- Nakita Gill
I am heading into a summer of writing and spending a lot of time in here.
Currently, I am getting it ready so that my focus can be maintained in this space. Minimizing clutter, reviewing notes and making sure that even the candle I light is exactly the type of scent that will inspire me.
These may seem like simple silly things, but I am an atmospheric writer. I write best when I set the stage. Past posters of two of my plays above me to remind me that I have done a thing or two, pictures of two women who have seen me through the worst and the best, an ampersand ornamental to remind me that there is always more to come and a fluffy mat for my bare feet in the early morning or evening.
For my deep and fun loving toddler, I have an Ikea table and chairs, with various creative elements and toys at her disposal. The IKEA cart with various supplies 'crayons, play dough, paints, colouring books, etc). Daily we come in here and practice what it means to give your creative self a ponder.
Next time, I will show you my desk at a closer look when I have the appropriate camera to capture it. For now, this will do.
