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.
