My window on the world


As we are renovating our entire house I have been relegated to a little space at the top of the house for writing. It is basically the landing to which the OH has added a small desk[piece of board balanced on the bannister] plus a comfy swivel chair. The walls are bare as we have stripped them ready for a new window and redecoration of the landing and stairs. As with everything here each job takes longer than anticipated due to a variety of complications. It's only saving grace is the small window which allows me to look out over the village and it's quiet, no disturbances up there, and I can leave my notebooks out. This morning I managed about 2000 words of my wip which are the first I've written this year. I have also written a few poems and a short story which I will post when I have tidied them up a bit.

The builder has promised he will start here on Thursday but we will believe him when we see him. Watch this space!!!
Oh and I have updated my wordcount and I am over halfway with some still to type up. Yippeee it's downhill all the way now, just hope I don't crash headlong into a blockade.

Sheepish, that is fantastic. I wish I could say we're neck and neck, but you are decorative French streets ahead of me!

Well done you.

2000 words - that is a very productive space! It does make a difference when you can leave your work out instead of having to tidy it away. Good luck with all your projects.

The view from your window is GORGEOUS! Talk about a room with a view!

That's a lovely workspace you've got there and I really like your standy-up note book holder thingie. I must try to get hold of one of those.

And well done on such a great word count:-)

Terrific word count, lovely view, makes me envious (my view isn't bad, but it's basically my garden and the surrounding trees, with a bit of greenhouse in the left foreground and some roof in the right background. Not a proper gorgeous view like yours). Hope the building/decorating work goes smoothly and doesn't disrupt your writing too much, especially when you're doing so well.
