The new nest

Permit me to sit and gloat for awhile.  I usually write in the library.  That is to say I write purely creatively in the library.  I sit at a table with my AlphaSmart in front of me, stare off into the distance and mind dump.  Then, when I get it home, I upload it to my pc and start the slog of making it look like English.  For this I need space.
For some time, now I have had my computer desk in the den and my handwriting desk in the living room.  I have no idea why I didn't connect them before, but this week (and largely because a very nice chair sale in Staples) I found myself with a new desk chair.  Why not share it with my writing desk and my pc desk?  Hence I combined the two, added a small bookcase that has been amouldering in the garage and voila!  I now have a nest.  Thank you Diane Chamberlain for the apt description. 
I find myself nesting there everyday.  Not sure it will replace the library but I'm getting a lot more work done.
