I think a writer’s workspace is like a fingerprint. Sure, we all have similar ridges and whorls, but in the end, your space is as individual as you are. For example, I’ll bet that, like my space, yours contains a book or two (or a gazillion). You probably have a calendar and a phone, even if it’s a cell that travels with you from place to place. On the other hand, I doubt you have a tiny plastic cow or a handmade pose-able figure of one of your children perched on a shelf. (Who knows? Maybe you do.)
I’m always fascinated to see the places where other writers craft their words. Apparently, I am not alone. Jill Krementz created a coffee table book on the subject. The Guardian did a whole series on the rooms of famous writers and Poets & Writers invited readers to submit photos of their writing spaces.
What’s in your writing space that makes it unique to you? I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Or, even better, post a picture of your space (or something unusual in it) on your blog and link to it here in the comments.
