Room with a view


Almost a year after I posted a picture of ‘a chair of one’s own’, I now bring you an entire ‘room of one’s own.’ 




Here’s what the same room looked like four years ago when we first moved into our house…


Room 2010



My husband very kindly let me commandeer our spare bedroom earlier this year as it was clear that trying to write in the same room as him was never going to get me anywhere – this is down to my own lack of concentration skills rather than any fault on his part. I feel very lucky. Not everyone is able to do this. It may not last – we may eventually need this room for something else, but for now it’s my little reading and writing heaven.


I'm not very good at sticking to new year's resolutions (except oddly the one I made two years ago to swear more) but I am going to stick my neck out and declare that 2014 will be the year I finish the novel. At least, a first draft!


Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year.
