I’ve always been interested in the workspace of the writer. You can see from the pic below (E.B. White’s workspace) that every writer’s environment is personal. Writing tools and technology have changed through the years, altering our notions of what is required when one sits down to write. One thing that hasn’t changed is the need for quiet. Solitude. Stephen King has written you should not have phone or video games etc. in your space. He also believes you should shut the door if you have one.

The workspace in the back of my den. Everything in its place

Words to live by. I have another one that says ‘don’t take shit from anybody’ but I don’t keep it on the wall.

Pencil sketch I did of my daughter a few years back. And keep those pencils sharpened.
