In reality, my ideal space to write is anywhere that has a flat surface, and allows me to clear my head. I don’t even really need much to be able to write anywhere; I just need some peace and quiet. You know, so I can hear the little voice in my head telling me what to write.
If I wanted to be more specific about my dream writing space, I would say that I want a study or library feel to the room: dark-colored walls, secluded, surrounded by full bookshelves. Little to nothing makes me feel more serene or inspired like walls lined up with books.
But I would like for the desk that I write at to feel like an office’s. The desk itself sleek, and a chair, big and comfortable. I want the seat to be wide enough that I can sit on one of my legs, and not squirm or reposition myself every ten minutes. I want my desk to face a large window, so I can look out to nature—for both inspiration and distraction, for when I need them most.
That kind of environment sounds most ideal for writing for me. It sounds like it would be a wonderful place to sit down and work, as well as sneak away from the rest of the world. It would also be really nice to have a specific corner in the room, with a big chair, an ottoman, and a lamp in it, for when I want to escape into another world—inside a book.
That sounds like the perfect place to be.
