Writers’ Work Spaces

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Are you curious about what other writers’ writing spaces look like? Apparently this is a natural curiosity, as the Guardian newspaper in England has been running an ongoing series looking into the places where some big name authors pen (or type) their work.

Some of my favorites are:

Jane Austen

Margaret Forster:

Graham Swift:

Will Self (I had to include this one because of all the Post-it Notes!):

Check out the article to see even more.

And now, for comparison’s sake, here’s mine:

    Oooh, fun! I love Margaret Forster’s office…all of those lovely windows!

    I’m partial to Jane’s and Margaret’s. Imagine the simplicity of writing on such a tiny table (looking at my sprawl of notes and books and maps…..). It looks more like a plant stand than a desk. *s*

    And what a nice view Margaret has.

    If I had to steal one, I think I’d go with Swift’s.

    A tv!!! (Okay I should keep my mouth shut – my desk is in my living area (apartment) so the TV is there but at least it’s to my back – not that that’ll stop me from finding hte remote every now and then.

    Love the post it notes. I’m kind of like that but with sheets of paper in a binder – My binders for my novels are interesting – you can see the development of the idea in there from initial concept to finish product – and all the things that never make it. Lots of fun.
