My Favourite Writing Spaces – The Low Door in the Wall.

My writing space right now!
My writing space right now!

I have a fascination with the minutiae of other writers’ lives: maybe it’s the solitary nature of the job; maybe I’m just a nosey cow. Maybe it’s both. Writer’s, from my own experience, spend a lot of time within their own stories, blind to the outside world and ‘elsewhere’ for hours at a time. We imagine, we spin, we create: we stare, unmoving, at blank computer screens or wads of lined paper as our tea goes cold and  our bottoms go numb. And we do most of it alone – apart from our imaginary friends, of course.

To see a writer’s work space is to see a low door in the wall, a rift in time and space where another world brushes against our own. Magic in a world full of magic. I love my writing spaces and use them as part of my inspration, use their specific ‘feel’ to chase away tiredness or blockages or the weight of the mundane. They are a silent, shimmering refuge where my other life waits.

And not only do I want to share my writing spaces with you, dear followers, but I want you to share with me.Whether you’re at the very beginning of your writer’s journey or an old hand, a blogger or a novelist, where do you love to write? When? How? And are their specific places for your different writing personas?
