Visual Inspiration

A few months ago we did some renovations on our house. I described here on this blog how we bumped out into the spare bedroom, which is my office, in order to make space for a vanity in our tiny bathroom. Our bathroom is finished and I love it!

Getting my office back, however, has taken a little more time. The walls had to be drywalled and painted. I had to clean out all the junk that had accumlated during our remodeling. Then my husband finally hung back up all my framed covers this past week. I love it! And I have two more covers to add once I buy more frames.



Now as I sit at my computer to write, this is the view I have. On days when the writing isn't going well, the covers are inspiration, reminding me that other stories have had rough spots too. I remember that I had to push through each time, keep writing even when it was painful, until suddenly, it's not painful any more, but flowing and joyful. And I look forward to adding even more frames to my wall.

How about you? Do you put out pictures or something else in your office or other room which inspires you?

My office is now a corner of the bedroom, and I would have to describe it as a collage. I tack inspirational things right up on the walls around me because the bulletin board is full. Calendar pages, mantras, hot celebrity photos, greeting cards and to do lists. It's a little messy, but it keeps me going! Somewhere in the chaos, I find my stories.

Hi Miranda. You didn't get to see my desk in that picture. Chaos and messy are two words that work well :)

Just getting into an office and out of the kitchen corner has been an inspiration. But, I do keep my books on my desk where I can see them all the time.

Very nice office! I love the framed covers. I want to do something like that. I put lots of pictures of Scotland around me for inspiration.

Wow, you're getting quite the collection of cover art. Kudos to you on your writing success AND the finished renovation. :)
