So anyone who’s been reading my blog for the last four months knows that my husband [Al] and I have been building our own house [a cabin actually], for the last few years. This last week we finished up the built-in’s in my nifty new writing space! I now have file drawers and regular drawers, cubbies and nooks, and a few crannies for little stuff. Yay!
So for the next week I am moving in there. Unloading boxes and organizing years of work. I can’t believe I have a writing space after years of making due. That said, what I learned from making due is that although the space is nice, real nice, it’s not necessary to get the writing done. In fact over the last three or four years my home has been upside down much of the time but I still managed to produce more work, sitting on my couch or in my bed with my laptop, a few books and my puppies scattered around me, than I had in previous years.
The lesson was a good one. I spent a lot of time thinking about writing, talking about how I was going to write when conditions were right for me to do so; which is funny to me now cuz it didn’t end up working that way at all. Oh how I love the adventure of life! Anywho, I look forward to getting back to it soon. I have a notebook in my back pocket to jot down all my significant thoughts and I’ll pick up with comments and posts when I get back!
