Brenda of thebrendablog came up with a great idea after showing her readers where she creates and where she blogs–that is, to host a tour of bloggers who were interested in showing their creative space. You can find out more about the tour and the participating blogs on Brenda’s site.
If you still want to be part of the tour, just take some photos of the space where you create, be it ever so humble. Write a post tomorrow about your space. And shoot me an email. I’ll add you to the list. In tomorrow’s post, I will tell about our “Where Bloggers Create” tour and link to all of you. Then everyone can take the virtual tour. Enjoy other blogger’s spaces, get some ideas, salivate. Hyper-ventilate. Whatever.
Well, I bit, and took a couple of photos of the spaces in which I write. I’m afraid they’re not very inspiring, but that’s what comes of hand-me-down desks and small apartments. :)
My desktop computer (that lime green tower to the bottom left) sits on a tiny little desk we cut down from a very large one my FIL gave us. My hubby and I each have our own computers — he’s a computer service tech and actually has one of every variety, I believe. He has a large desk in the living room, where mine also used to be. But two desks in our main living area took up a lot of space; not only that, but my hubby likes to play games and his computer time cut sharply into the peace and quiet I craved for writing. I needed my own space…my own “sacred” space, so to speak.
So, after much huffing, puffing and rearranging, I managed to eek out a small corner in our bedroom (thus, the cutting down of the desk) where I could close the door behind me, listen to my favorite music, and have the quiet time I needed. And when I say a “small corner”, I do mean a small corner!
I didn’t realize until I took this photo just how cluttered my desk looks! But honestly, everything on it serves a purpose and has its own place. It’s just your typical, run of the mill, garden variety (hah!) supplies. Some time I’ll write a post about the photo that hangs above my desk. :)
So, as unexciting as it is, this is my little creative corner of the world, just waiting for me to pound out that best seller! ;-) I look forward to seeing everyone else’s creative space.
