Today was a very productive day, despite the fact that my house was rather chaotic. With President’s Day, both of my roommate’s kids were out of school. My little dining room is not exactly the most private space to attempt to keep an office space. It’s frustrating to say the least.
No problem, though! We move in April and I’ll have a whole room all to myself! I’m a writer, and as I grow older (and become more serious about my profession), my writing space becomes even more important. There was a time where I could write anywhere. I was younger, my world was smaller, and I had a lot less going on, I suppose. All that mental free space allowed me to crawl inside myself and be a “writer turtle,” as my ex-husband once called me.
Now, I really require a space that defines me. I have so many things in life competing for my attention: my husband, my cute little apartment (and its endless chores and small tasks), my friends… Not that it’s a bad thing, but these things definitely combine to make it harder to truly focus on the job at hand. Right now, writing my book is the number one goal in life for me. Hubby and I have put a lot at stake so I can MAKE IT HAPPEN. I suppose that’s what makes me so adamant about my writing space. It’s become my “real” office.
What about you? Do you have a special space in your home for whatever you’d call your passion? Where do you blog?
