I'm falling out of love with my writing space.
I'm grateful that I have writing space at all, but it's feeling cramped and dirty and disorganized. I could be noticing this because winter is on its way (it's Alaska-September might toss a couple of nice days our way, but I've already resigned to the inevitable) and I'm mentally rebelling against months of choking seasonal claustrophobia. Or possibly because I'm having some trouble transitioning from one project to another so I'm looking for things to distract me.
Maybe it's time to paint
Or perhaps install some shelves
Or go shopping for new drapes
Or download that new Uzbekistani noir songs for writers album
Or learn a foreign language so that I can describe my discontent in Yezidi
Okay, so I'm totally looking for a distraction. This means that I must eliminate them, and fast, so I can get to the next level. That's right, I do live my life like a video game!*
So tomorrow I'll spend a couple of hours cleaning, which will mostly involve selecting cleaning music**, dusting and trying to keep the cats from eating lemon-scented Pledge***
And then everything shall be wonderful and the words will flow like wine. Or, if they don't, the wine will flow like wine.
Do you have a designated writing space? In your home or out? Anything you want to change about it?
* A boring-ass video game.
** This is actually the same music I always listen to.
*** I don't know what mineral deficiency causes them to lick up cleaning products. I just...I do my best to keep them out of them, okay?
