When I want to write in my journal, I have to do it sitting in bed, and when I want to paint I have to do it sitting at the coffee table in the family room. Coloring in my mandala coloring book? That can be just about anywhere.
So, on the right, there's a pile of books, photocopies, and my notebook with all of my character sketches and arcs, the story chronology, notes, etc. The basket was my "NaNo survival kit" for 2005 and it's just stuck. It's got CDs, another story idea notebook, the CWC bulletin for this month, my writing scarf (shut up), and lots and lots of gum.
Over on the left, I've got a Ganesh figurine and candle (got to unblock those blocks!), a wee bottle of BPAL Polyhymnia for when I need a little inspiration, and my ZenaMoon candle for writing.
And of course, on the chair, Pandora.
So, what about you? Have you created a space in your house dedicated to creating - writing, knitting, beading, painting, etc.?
And in shameless fangirl news: my favorite actor, Christopher Eccleston, is going to be in a movie adaptation of The Dark Is Rising. The books have been rec'd to me a million times...I guess it's time I actually pick them up from the library.
