I love cozy reading or writing corners. I want both of those areas to be private and quiet! My reading corner is
at one end of my lanai–Florida’s term for a screened or glassed-in porch. It’s comfy, well-lighted and tucked
away from the rest of my bungalow–yes, I’m big on “tiny” homes.
My office is in an alcove at the other end of the lanai. My only prerequisite for a working space? A window above
my desk! Not sure why but it’s important that I have an opening to the real world close by. It’s more than just the
natural light–somehow I can’t see staring at a wall when I’m thinking through a scene or troublesome element
of a story. Maybe it’s just the promise of escapism–if I work really hard I can go out and play later?
Do you have special places set aside to read? Or maybe write? If so, what makes them special?
