Where I write…

I’ve always been interested not only in how, why and when writers write, but also where.  I know I need a quiet space to write where I can close the door and feel very comfortable.  I’ve always loved being surrounded by books so it’s been a longstanding dream to have a library in our home where I can write and where all of our books can be together (or most of them at least).  We have a beautiful book called At Home with Books that features wonderful photographs of home libraries.  Over the years, my wife and I flipped through that volume endlessly as we planned our long-avoided home renovation.  Well it was eight months of  frustration, stress and about 436,349 decisions (all of them abolsutely critical) but we moved back into our renovated home this past May.  We love it (although, if you can believe it, it actually took longer than expected).  The highlight for me is our new library and deck on the third floor, overlooking the backyard.

Because I”m a disaster with a camera, these shots don’t really do it justice but you get the idea.  This room has become my sanctuary and it’s where I write.  In fact,  this blog post was written right here in the library…
