Let's get this out in the ether once and for all...I'm quirky.
Scratch that. I'm not just quirky, I'm Super Quriky (and now a super hero). Most people probably wouldn't believe what's spinning around in my head at any given minute. My friends, especially my writer friends, are more than used to this, which only proves what fabulous friends I have. I'm not sure if it was being my mother's only child (family tree explanation at another time), but that dancing to the beat of my own drummer? Yeah, I have an entire Scottish tattoo banging on in my brain. No wonder I became a writer. It's the only way to keep the voices happy. As I was finishing my latest novel (1 day ahead of deadline--go me!), I couldn't help but wonder as I looked around my writing space that wow, there's a lot going on, and yet...it's all me. Remember those "search and find" puzzles in Highlights magazine (yes, I'm showing my age--I loved Goofus and Galant--take a guess who I preferred). Don't believe me? Check this out.
Uh-huh. That's my writing space. It's located in the breakfast nook of my kitchen (dishwasher white nose is my favorite thing!). There's my bee collection (cause my critique group is called the Tiny Killer Bees--a blog for another time <G>), there's my Tinkerbell collection (most of the ones here are gifts I've received) and then there's my Barbie collection...each doll you see represents a different character in my books. And then there's a photo of The Avengers telling me to write, my "quantity first, quality later" reminder, and enough sticky notes to supply a small college campus. Not enough to blow your mind and make you wonder how I can think in the chaos? How's this?
Now it's time to tell me...what's your favorite part of your writer space? Is there a photo that keeps you going, a knick-knack you look to for inspiration? A special gift that brings a smile to your face when you see it? Share! I'd love to know...
and prove to myself I'm not the only quirky one out there. Thanks for reading!
