I’ve always believed you should dream big. If you want something then shoot for the top, that way if you miss you’re still better off than where you started from. So my dream has always been to be published. Not just published but a New York Times bestselling author...Someday.
And I spend a ton of my time writing, so much so, my family often will feel left out. So I struggle for a balance of some kind every day. It’s difficult to do but it’s doable. So while I’m climbing up this hill to success I spend a majority of my time either sitting in my little writer’s corner of the house or on my sofa with my laptop. Wherever there is sunshine, usually. I love opening every one of the blinds in the house to a sunny day. Nothing gets me more in the mood to write than lots of sunshine.
Well, I found this little website where many writers post their writing spaces and it got me to thinking what would my dream writing space look like? Btw I had a blast looking through all the photos and many of them made me thankful of my little tiny nook to the left there lol. http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/series/writersrooms?page=3
Currently my little corner of my nine hundred square foot apartment is extremely small as you can see in the photo above. But I have hopes one day of owning my own home (which is a dream in itself) and have my own study where I can write to my little heart’s content with no distractions from the rest of the house. Although, I’m so used to the T.V, kids, and the everyday rambling of too many people in such a small space that when I do find some peace and quiet my muse will turn off I’m sure.
Either way I’ve decided to dream big when it comes to my dream writing space much like the photo to the right. There are a few requisites for my study that I must have. Number one is a very large window, hopefully with a beautiful view (of the city or the country it matters little as long as it’s mine.) The second thing I require is a modern décor, hardwood floors, clean sleek lines, muted earth tones, and hopefully a water fountain so I can have the sound of trickling water. And lastly, a large wall full of book shelves. Despite that I am going digital soon. I still have a ton of books I need to put somewhere. Currently they are stacked in a corner of the hall closet.
I’ll likely never get everything that I want but I plan to dream big that way I won’t fall too far off the mark. Wherever I fall I’ll be ecstatic that I’m there anyway. This long journey of life has taken quite a few twists and turns but I’ve always had my eye on the target. So why not dream big?
Tell me what big dreams do you have? And do you have a dream writing space you’d like to share?
