I'm not a persnickety writer by any stretch
I've had a tough time settling my mind down from the 9 to 5 work lately. I mean, struggled like no other time in my writing life. I used to be able to shut it all off an get lost. But now it's harder to de-stimulate my brain. Friday I came home sat at in my living room for 3 or 4 hours without touching the remote control. Before I realized the TV wasn't on, the room was dark and it was bedtime. And my brain was just then quieting down so I could think like a semi-sane person.
I decided to take advantage of my developments "dumpster days" (when they park two big dumpsters so we can get rid of our junk) and I cleaned out my 4th bedroom.
With an achy back, two sore knees, wrists, hands, and $400 spent at IKEA, Junior and I spent today turning the former storage room into what we call the "executive suite" (quiet room).
The idea was to create the only room in my house without a television. A place to go, write, think, relax, nap, etc. For me, I suspect I'll be doing a lot of writing in there, especially on rainy days. It's on the top floor and you can hear the rain tap on the room. Now that I think about it, there will probably be a lot of napping.
I'll share pictures when it's all finished. Nothing fancy. We bought a couple of side tables, a laptop desk, two cheap TV/bookstands, a couple of lamps, and spacious futon so that the room can double as a second guest bedroom (only when absolutely necessary--like most introverts, I don't host a lot of guests).
I can't wait to see if it helps. If not, it should be a great place to sit.
