11. Prompt: My writing space
Gabriela Pereira asked those in the DIY MFA BookClub Facebook group to share their writing spaces if they liked. Since I recently went through a January Room Declutter/Makeover, and my desk is relatively clean, I decided to share.
I'm lucky that my house was designed with a 12x24ft room behind the garage. This is my writing, art, and get-a-way room.
My writing space is in the middle facing a window with a view of my backyard including spruce, cottonwood trees and mountains that ring the rural valley I live in. 4750'. No fences. One of our state mottoes is: Don't fence me in. As I write this, big fluffy snow flakes are falling. But rain is expected, so it will be washed away.
My desk is a large, oak, 1923 editor's desk, which I purchased from the newspaper where I worked when we moved to a new building with built in desks. My laptop is set up beside a larger monitor and I use an ergonomic keyboard.
Behind me is a short bookcase with my printer, scanner, writing craft books, research books and office supplies.
To the right of my desk are a green velvet love seat and a vintage green brocade easy chair with a faux cowhide pouf as a footstool. This is where I can sit and read my DIY MFA book! Or sneak a nap.
To my left is my art and craft table and left of that is a door with window and side lights that leads to the side yard.
Because the room was built off the garage it has a cement floor and 9 ft. ceiling. It's a wonderful room and very conducive to writing and creating. It's only drawbacks are that it is a bit isolated from the rest of the house and I have to walk through a corner of the garage to get to it.
