I’ve been neglecting this space for quite a while, as I’m trying to finish the proposal for my next project. Because I’m the superstitious sort, I won’t divulge the subject matter yet. I’ll only do that if/when a publisher decides to run with it! But what’s brought me back here is a great series that ran a while back in London’s Guardian newspaper. Simply called Writers’ Rooms, it’s comprised of “portraits of the spaces where authors create.”
The image above shows the writing desk of author and illustrator Raymond Briggs, of whom I’ve been a fan since childhood.
You can check out the entire series here. It’s well worth the time. Each picture is accompanied by a short essay by the featured author, explaining his/her creative space and working habits.
