As Promised - My Writing Room



It's done and it's pristine! I now need to christen the room with some writing! What a thought - each night I have been falling asleep with ideas tumbling over in my head yet nothing has been put to the page. This has been to to circumstance - yes but now I have no excuse. I have a near perfect space to BE in and ideas queing to come out. I just needd to follow my own advice and just write!!!! (Rebecca, it is very tidy and unused at the moment. Once work commences disaster will pour forth in the form of bits of paper, research books, tea cups..............)





On another note I was persuing the current issue of TimeOut Dubai as one does - looking for the best restaurant deals to be honest and came to the book review section. The lead review is of Lucie Whitehouse's book - The House At Midnight. It was a brilliant review (not yet online) and just might make me move the book closer to the top of the towering TBR pile!!!
NEWS FLASH
The short list for the Romantic Novelist Association Romance Prize is out here. It is a fantastic list (all fabulous writers) but it all the more wonderful because my friends Fiona Harper , who has not only one but two books on the list, and Julie Cohen Julie Cohen are on it. I am so pleased that I will be making it to the lunch!!! It will be worth leaving Dubai at 3 in the morning to arrive at LHR at 7:30 for the lunch at 11:45! Is that dedication for you you or what!!!!!

Hope to catch up with you at the lunch Liz - and your space looks great.

Julie Cohen said...

Hooray! I'm so glad you're coming to the lunch.

And I envy your writing room. I perch on the dining room table, trying to keep my precious work away from little fingers.

Beautiful! There is nothing like "A Room of One's Own".

Looks lovely, Liz - but that lap-top is awfully get-at-able by the rest of the family...

What a wonderfully bright, inspiring space. Go for it!

And I love the picture of the guy paddling on a body board!

Sally Lawton said...

I want your writing room... it's gorgeous - may many wonderful ideas flow! :-)

Fiona said...

What a great room. I'm squashed in a corner of the kitchen which means frequent trips to the fridge to forage:{

Enjoy the lunch - Julie lives a few miles away from me although we've never met.

Hi Liz. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Lovely writing room. I'm supposed to have my own desk but since it's the closest flat-topped piece of furniture to the front door, it is invariably piled with the kids' stuff.
Keep on writing.

Barrie said...

From someone who writes at the kitchen table, I would LOVE your office!
