Don't ask me why, but life has felt particularly busy these last few weeks, and I haven't spent nearly enough time writing. It's hard to believe how much I've missed it!
While I could certainly benefit from some extra free time, and perhaps a bit more self-discipline, I really think a little workspace to call my own would help me stay on track.
These aren't unbearable conditions for the creative process by any means, but with distractions like the hustle and bustle of the city or the TV on in our combined living/dining room, I wouldn't call either of these scenarios 'ideal'.
Often I come across photos of nooks and crannies that people have converted into desktops or 'micro offices' like these ones below, and I'm completely enamoured.
While they're not necessarily used to their fullest potential at the moment, the only two spots that might do the trick in our place are already very much spoken for...
There's the front entry way "closet", which is essentially a crawl space hiding behind my West Elm sheers, and the laundry nook off the washroom.
But who feels like writing in a windowless space, squished between storage shelves and a stacked washer/dryer set?
Not this girl!
Have you created a home office for yourself or a special space to hide away for a little R&R? How did you make it work?
More importantly, how did it make you work?
