where the writers are
Creative Spaces For Writers

Do you have a special place to write?  Do you have a special routine to prepare yourself for writing?  How does your space affect your writing?  These and more questions have been buzzing around in my head.  I know the answers for myself but I wondered about other writers.  Were they doing something I’m not?  Could I learn from what others do?  Absolutely!  I decided to invite writers to share about how their office space was linked to their creativity or creative process.  Their responses were surprising and informative.  It turns out there’s much more to our workspaces than just office furniture.  As a result, I’ve started a new guest blog series, Creative Spaces, which launched on January 25, 2013.

Fourteen authors accepted the invitation to guest blog and if visitors (you) show that they enjoy the series, it may last longer than fourteen weeks.  You’ll gain inspiration and maybe some tips.  You’ll certainly get to know some of your favorite authors a little bit more.  Be sure to come back each week to hear about other writers and their creative journeys but especially to take a peek inside their private creative spaces. 

Here's just a sampling:

Writer, physician, and mother of two, Sayantani DasGupta, manages to write without a desk or time to herself.

After a life of moving, Korean writer Jimin Han finally has a permanent "temporary" writing space.

Memoirist Kathleen Pooler shares her tips on clutter control for writers.

Scottish author Susan Buchanan shares the humorous impact of pregnancy to her writing and office space.

Shadows and Ghosts author  Barbara Froman talks about what inspires her writing.
