Fantasy Time or Wishful Thinking

Yesterday I was thinking about how bored I am with my dining room table lol…, I don’t mean the actual table (well, that too but that’s a different post!) I mean where I write *deep sigh*

So I decided to do a free writing session on my ideal writing location and that reminded me of a journal page I did back in, ooooo, must of been 2008 lol


I love the treehouse idea as a place to write, but, it’s not my ideal writing space……

I’m not greedy, or particularly demanding. A small room would be ok. I don’t need a chaise lounge or a huge desk. A couple of bookcases, where I could store all my notebooks and writing books. A small armchair in the corner for reading and a couple of shelves above my desk for photographs and small nick nacks that have meaning and importance. Some inspiring quotes and pictures on the wall and an old clock, the kind that ticks. The walls would be pale pastel tones, the furniture, natural wood. A stripped wood floor with a large rug and some fluffy cushions on the armchair. My favourite mug on a coaster and a vase of flowers.

A large window in front of my desk that opens wide, with a view of the sea and the beach below. Scented candles and a couple of lamps. A coffee machine or some kind of tea maker (I wonder if you can make tea in a coffee percolator?) and my favourite pair of cozy fluffy slippers. A comfy office chair to support my back and plenty of power sockets for my iPad and netbooks.

White voile curtains at the window that flutter in the breeze coming off the sea. The scent of seaweed and salt filling the room.

Ahhhhhh…..bliss….I’m feeling rather chilled right now lol πŸ™‚

Ok, when I become a best seller (ha bloody ha!) you just know where I’ll be moving to πŸ™‚

What would be your ideal writing space?

Shameless Begging……..
I’ve got one of my stories up on Flash Fiction World and I know I haven’t got a chance in hell of winning lol, but, if you do get the chance, click the link and leave me a comment and rating *flutters eyelashes* πŸ˜‰

Went to my class last night. I always look forward to it….it’s so nice to have 3 writery type groups that I’m part of πŸ™‚ We did some work on story ideas, and we have homework….to write a short story using a Horoscope for inspiration. Guess what I’ll be doing today? Buying magazines with horoscopes in lol

Yesterday’s prompt about the eyes turned into the start of a short story about a teenage girl with a powerful stare that creeps out all her class mates πŸ˜‰ Today’s prompt is at the end of an empty street which kind of reminds me of a few pics I’ve taken over the years *goes off to hunt some down for inspiration* πŸ™‚

  1. I think I’d like to be someplace with lots of blankets. I can’t think of anything else really. Lol.

    I think I voted for you yesterday if that was what you had up there before. I hope you win.


  2. Love the drawing! πŸ™‚

    I have a table at the bookstore where I like to sit. It actually really bugs me when its occupied by someone else. Don’t they know that’s my spot? πŸ˜‰ The employees even know that’s where I sit and they tease me about it. I always do my best writing at that table. πŸ™‚


  3. I like the idea of a tree house Vikki. I read once of a man who wrote in his shed. He had a kettle in there for his Tea, a heater and all he required, sounded idyllic to me.


  4. I always wanted a little studio in the garden. I have a shed and a summer house but I fancied something a bit more substantial with a old brick walls, lots of light and tiled roof. Plenty of lovely plants growing round it and over it. Oh and if you get one of those coffee machines like a Tassimo you can do coffee, tea and hot chocolate. πŸ™‚
