These days with so many electronic devices, people can write anywhere: the office, the coffee shop, the kitchen table, or even outside by a pool. Although you may actually choose to lug your laptop to a variety of places, you should have a home writing base as well.
If you are one of the lucky ones who has an entire office to themselves to spread out, this post may not for you. However in talking to fellow writers, I have found that some of them don’t have any designated space. Even if they have a home office, the space has been allocated to their spouse and/or their kids. They get the leftovers. Or maybe you do have your own space, but your day job takes over and your notebooks and writing literature are just scattered throughout.
In either case, your writing is not taking enough space in your life, (both physically and mentally). I am telling you if you want to write that book, you will be more productive if you make space for yourself and your writing. You need a place where you can sit and feel, I am a writer.
So clear off that shelf, empty a drawer, and give yourself room at the desk (even if you have to work out some sort of time-share). You are important, and so is your writing.
Thank you for reading this post. I hope you found it helpful.
