Prepping for NaNoWriMo: Creating my Writing Space
Writing Studio & Creative Procrastination Station
NaNoWriMo provides me with so much more than thirty days of intense writing. Pre-planning for NaNo is great becuase I get to do things that I put off throughout the year. This year I am focused on creating my own personal writing space. For some reason I have always put it off. For years I was just too busy to even think about it and it was always one of those “one day” projects. Later when I had the time, I created guilt thinking claiming my own space would take something away from someone else. But circumstances have changed and I realize that not only do I have the space, I deserve to claim it.
So here is the Writing Studio/Creative Procrastination Station as a work in progress. I have an entire room devoted to what I love to do and what I want to learn how to do. Not only do I have a desk devoted strictly to creating fiction but I have a place for all my art and quilting supplies. I plan to create zones within the room for each task and project. My plan for the walls will include a giant cork board, white board, and a felt board for quilt planning.
Note the blank manuscript page on the screen! Formatted and ready for November!
A room with a view.
My grandfather's typewriter will provide inspiration.
I do need to go chair shopping, but this one will keep me awake!
