I wrote a post quite some time back about the space where I write (in my living room, on my sofa, usually next to my dog!).
But as I’ve focused more on turning my writing into a serious career, it’s becoming more and more obvious that I am going to need a space of my own to write.
I am one of those people who can’t write unless it’s quiet, and you can certainly tell the difference in the quality of my writing between when it’s quiet and when it’s noisy 😀
Yet, the more I’ve been thinking about it, the more I realise how many considerations need to be thought of!
It may sound silly, but I like to have my dog with me when I write, hence why I write in the living room. And, although I am lucky enough to have a large bedroom that I could turn half of into an office space, I don’t want to confine my dog to my room all day, not when she likes to wander in and out of the garden. So, for now, my room’s not an option.
We don’t, unfortunately, have any spare rooms either.
The living room is surprisingly noisy, even when there aren’t many people around.
It has been suggested a construction at the bottom of the garden might work, which is tempting. I have seen a few other writers’ blog about their writing space which is contained to a summer house-type building in their garden. It would also mean I could have my dog with me.
But looking at these constructions and mainly their price tag, it was a little bit of a shocker 😀
So, I guess for now I will have to stick to the living room. But I am putting some questions out to the blogging/writing community in hope you might be able to help:
What do you do to find the space you need to write?
Do you have any tips on creating a writing space in less than ideal circumstances?
What is your writing space like?
I have some posts scheduled over the weekend but won’t be back until Monday to answer comments and email 🙂 I’m also still having some difficulty with my computer, so please bear with me!
Have a great weekend!
