Another week down. I can't believe how much time is flying by. Before I know it the year will be over. This week's topic for the #MFRWauthor blog hop is Open Door, Closed Door
I will admit to being a very confused panda about this topic. Open or closed door? Huh? I write romance, adult romance, so was this topic in relation to certain aspects of that type of story? I didn't think so because well most of these topics have been of a PG-13 nature.
So then I decided this topic maybe is about where we write. So that is what I decided to go with. I would take a picture of my writing space, but I'm a tad messy. Just like my writing is go as I flow and sometimes a little all over the place as the story comes together, my desk space is the same.
I don't have a dedicated office in my house. My writing 'office' is my dining room. We aren't formal type of people so we've never eaten a meal in that room. It doesn't even have a dining room table, it is set up like an office. It's great and spacious. Has a bay window that looks out on our backyard. What it doesn't have is a door. Of any kind. There is an entrance leading into the kitchen and a larger entrance that gives a straight shot from the front door into the room. That means I have ZERO privacy for writing when the family is home.
My daughter has been out of the house for three years due to college. Now that she's graduated she's 'officially' moved out and doing adult things all on her own. I've toyed with the idea of turning her room into a guest/office space so that I can have a door. The only issue with that is it's upstairs in kid territory. That means during the summer, even with the door closed I'd be putting myself closer to the noise as my boys play and do what boys do.
So there you have it. What about you? What is your writing space like? Be sure to check out the other authors on the hop and hopefully I've answered this question as it was meant to be.
Thanks for stopping by
