You know what I would really love? A special place of my own. I’d love somewhere I could sneak off, lock the door and immerse myself in writing, thinking and reading. My own little place that no-one but me goes so I can explore my creativity.
I have a dream of finding the perfect place to write. No interruptions. Without children banging on the door wanting something to eat or drink and no husband asking me to find things and no dog hassling me to go for a walk.
In our house, the only place I can write is the lounge or at the kitchen table. Both places I end up being tracked down and nagged until I get up and meet whatever demand is being shouted at me. So I’ve been looking for somewhere else I can write.
I could find a nice little cafe but it can get too distracting with people watching and noise, libraries are great but are quite sterile environments that don’t evoke my senses to add to my writing. Then I had an idea. What about a writing shed?
We have some space out in the garden that would fit a nice sized garden shed and if money were no object, I’d definitely have one of those cabins, hooked up with electric and internet. Looking out over the fields were surrounded by, I know this would be writing heaven for me.
Do you ever dream of having your own little piece of heaven?
