Where I Work When I’m Not Working

Taking a page from the fabulous Terri Windling this week.  Her Myth and Moor blog is that rare creature of the internet: content (**shudder**) that refreshes rather than deadens.  She post gorgeous photo-collages of her life, work, and dog (Tilly!), together with inspiring quotes from things she’s reading.  Here below is my poor imitation. And an attempt at refreshment after an exhausting week.

I’ve been a writer for going on twelve obscure years now, and in that time I’ve slowly carved out a room of my own.  Currently, it resides in Sacramento, CA.  Dartmoor it’s not, but it has its own panache.  Here’s my study, full of favorite novels and personal totems – quite a few of them related to A Song of Ice and Fire.

Where the magic happens.  Sometimes.

This year's board: Firefly valentines and Patti Smith quotes!

This year’s bulletin board: Firefly valentines and Patti Smith quotes!

At the beginning of each year I put up a bulletin board wherein my random thought detritus shall be collected over the long-haul.  Rock-quotes, plot-notes, puppy valentines…It all goes here.  Here’s what it was last year:

And, of course, there is the inevitable muse.

Hi.  I sleep in here sometimes.

The view is good.

No, not Dartmoor.  But mine.
