Your Nest – necessary or not?

Do you have a “nest”?

Is there a specific place you must be in order to tap into your creativity?

Or, are you a roving writer? Do you carry your laptop or journal with you and write as the mood strikes you?

I like to think of myself as having a wonderful, warm, cozy, quirky private space where I write – and that I write regularly, with discipline, like Hemingway.

However, I am in the “catch as catch can” phase of my life right now, and so I write in journals, on my laptop, on pieces of paper I pull from my overloaded purse.

Right now, it is foggy -trying to write again. Foggy and halting. I’m having faith in the process though, with or without the nest.

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950

    My office is my nest. It used to be where I sold vintage books from now I just write about them for my blog. I own a laptop, but I’m happiest sitting at my desk surrounded by books and other delightful things.
