Zen Garden Writing Space? How I Wish… #MFRWauthor

photo by author Robin MichaelaHello…but, I’ve just gotta ask… why are you reading this? It’s Week #47 of the #MFRWauthor 52-Week Blog Challenge, which coincides with Thanksgiving weekend. You all should either be in a turkey coma or lost in the mad chaos of Black Friday. However, since you’re here, today you get to learn about…wait for it…my writing space.

Whoopee, you say.

Yippee, I say – it’ll be a short blog post this week.

Seriously, my writing space consists of a nondescript desk in a nondescript room. I’m lucky to have a place that has a door in case I need to shut it to keep out my furbabies. They like to bug me when, in their opinion, it’s time to be fed. Which is hourly.

My nondescript desk is littered with books. I am a writer, so I have a boatload of reference books. The Emotion Thesaurus by Ackerman and Puglisi, Thinking Like a Romance Writer by Dahlia Evans, and Master Lists for Writer by Bryn Donovan litter my desk right next to my well-thumbed copy of Roget’s Thesaurus. I also take care of our household bills, pay our taxes, etc, so my desk has cubbies for paperwork and files.

The End.

Yep, that’s it. I wish I could say that I write in the midst of a tranquil zen garden that allows my creativity to flow or that I craft my stories from high atop a mountain overlooking a serene valley, but I can’t. It’s a simple desk in a room with four walls, but my writing space is still magical. It helps to transport me (and, hopefully my readers) to an alternate reality that always offers a Happily Ever After.

    The turkey coma has worn off…barely, and I don’t do Black Friday, so here I am 🙂 The danger of zen garden, I think, would be that I’d be so distracted by the beauty, I’d forget to write. Like Sheri said, writing is a pretty practical experience. Distractions can be…distracting.

      You’re right – I do need peace and quiet, but would probably be distracted by the beauty of a zen garden. Trust me – there’s no beauty to distract me in my current office, lol. Thanks for dropping by after your turkey coma! 🙂

    We’re doing Thanksgiving on Sunday when everyone can get together, and I’m abstaining from Black Friday this year, so here I am, reading your post, LOL ! The zen garden sounds wonderful, but I know I need all my clutter and stuff to really get into the zone.
