Yesterday we posted Virginia Woolf's quote that every woman needs a room of her own to write. Here's a photo of Virginia Woolf's room.


Apparently it was a lot messier when she used it, with papers strewn everywhere.

Jane Austen didn't need as much space to write her novels.



And here's Helen Hemphill's writing room-



Ready for her next masterpiece.

Jane Austen has always amazed me. How anyone could write at a little table in the corner with obligations and demands coming at her. But I think that was her--her books all show that pull/push between freedom and discipline.

I LOVE the green laptop.

Isn't it interesting what our writing spaces say about us as writers. And as people too, I guess.

I love the green laptop too! Mine's sort of sickly maroon- a pink shell over a black Macbook.

Green laptop...
It's a green shell over a white MacBook. My brother-in-law has a cool royal blue one, so I had to make a statement. Besides, maybe the writing is better when it's green! Happy New Year! H.
