Ten writers for children. All with something to say.

My work space


One day I would love to have my own office. I have a picture in my head of a lovely windowed room with bookshelves all over, brimming with good reads. And I know many lucky writers who do have that kind of space.
But for now, this is my office, our wooden nook off of the kitchen. I've wrtten a lot of stories sitting here. ( It's where I'm sitting now as I type.) I can look out the picture window and see deer in the yard or the UPS man driving up to bring me a package or my kids driving home from school or my dogs as they've escaped from the back yard. In other words, I can sit here and work as I also keep track of the rest of the world. It may be messy, but it's comfortable. And it works. For now, it's perfect.

It's so clean!!!!

I love that your work place is a look out. You can break from the interior work of writing and reconnect with nature and the civilized world.

Messy? Heavens, Stephanie, it looks neat as a pin! Wait till you see where I work!

I'm intrigued with the cow picture on the back wall. Is there special significance to it?

Oh, I adore my cow picture. I grew up on a farm, and the Christmas that I was pregnant with our first baby, my husband gave me that picture. And Bailey ended up looking exactly like the little girl in the picture.Like, it could be of her.

Looks like a great, uncluttered workspace, Stephanie. Sometimes my space gets so cluttered, it competes with the clutter in my brain and I can't move forward.

Edie, you have just described my life!

It looks great, Stephanie, and I love how you describe what it allows you to do while you are making books.
