Step Into My Office (Or, Where I Write)

Soooo where’s YOUR favourite writing place? 😎

Kate M. Colby

where-i-writeAs a reader, I love learning more about how my favorite books were written. Fun facts like how J.K. Rowling wrote the initial idea for Harry Potteron a napkin, or how Ernest Hemingway only wrote while standing (in a pair of oversized loafers, to be precise) always intrigue me.

I’ve shared by original inspiration for the Desertera series before (you can read about it here), but I realized I rarely talk about how or where I write. Admittedly, my “office” isn’t glamorous, but it’s gotten the job done twice now (14 times if you count my nonfiction projects).

As I got stronger the boys moved a few walls in the house and built me an office with my desk, a TV , my wax making table and supplies, and wall shelves. I also have room for two chairs ,plus my wheelchair at the desk, and a window with my own A/C unit for comfort. The only thing is I have to share it with the two cats who think they own spots on my desk. I tell them they are renting and the rent is due, they claim to not speak the language. 🙂 Giggle, giggle.

  3. Mine’s in the kitchen. The table faces the window, view outside is of the garden. I get to see birds flitting in and out of the space outside. Blackbirds are frequent visitors, as is a little Robin. I see all seasons in their glory. It’s a good place to think, not think and daydream. 😏
