Good MORNIN OR AFTERNOOOON! As always, good whatever time of the day you are reading this. Thank you, also, for being here. I include this a lot in my posts, but I appreciate your time and support!
Alright, I’m gonna do my best to avoid any more fluff from now on, UNLESS, of course, I have something important to share. In this case, it turns out, I do have one quick thing to share and that is that my fourth book, Eyes Never Lie, is in the final stages!
This is my best novel yet and I am very excited to share it. The cover should be completed in the next week and as soon as it is I will post it here as well as to all of my social medias to see what you think! Speaking of social media, if you aren’t following me on all of them, I have included links at the bottom of this post along with links to purchase my first three books if you haven’t already!
Alright, here we go, the topic for the day. What is my perfect writing environment if it could be anywhere? Now, I’m gonna throw in a disclaimer right here, I have never actually been to the place that I am about to describe.
I know, I know, what the hell right? Maybe it doesn’t make very much sense, but there are certain things in life that you just know. One of the things that I know is that if I had a week in the very place that I about to describe, I would write several books.
The reason is that the place that I have in mind is literally built in my mind around the concept of writing. You will see as I describe, but there would literally be nothing else to do in this place except write! Maybe it’s stupid that I am describing a place I have never been, however, its my post so you’ll accept my choices and LIKE IT!
My perfect writing space would be in a small cabin on the outskirts of Nome, Alaska. WHAT??? I know, cold as shit, out in the middle of BFE and, to top it all off, like seven people every year get eaten by wolves (a guestimate from yours truly and not at all based upon actual statistics).
These things are what make it so great though. I’m from a small town. Not quite as small as Nome, Alaska, but pretty close. I like being in a small town. I like knowing everyone and everyone knowing me.
I like that neighbors watch out for each other and everyone feels so safe that almost no one locks their doors at night. I also don’t mind the cold. If you got the right gear, you’ll be alright. The thing about the cold is that it brings out the best in me. It pulls out the creative.
I don’t pretend to understand why, all I know is that when it’s a little chilly, snowy or raining outside and I am curled up on the couch with a big, soft blanket and my laptop, I bust out some DAMN good word counts.
I think it maybe has something to do with the fact that there is less to do when it is cold, which is the main reason for the isolation of my perfect writing space.
A small cabin, one bedroom, one bathroom, kitchen and living room. It has to include a stone fireplace and a loft. Why? Well, I have never been to Alaska and, if I’m honest, I’m slightly paranoid in general. I don’t like the idea that someone could barge in the front door and there I am.
I want a vantage point. Another advantage to a small cabin is that there would be only one door. If someone wanted to try me, they would have to come right through that one door which would be directly underneath the loft.
Needless to say, it wouldn’t be a great day for them. That loft would have to have a fireplace and that baby would be lit the entire damn time. Its my perfect space and therefore I would want a Laz-Boy recliner right in front of that fireplace.
I’d sit in that thing with my laptop and the fire going, the flames keeping my feet warm and the place lit up. The crackling of burning logs being the only noise with the exception of the wind blowing easily outside.
OH YES. That’s what I’m talking about. The cabin would need to have a view of the mountains and it would have a wrap around porch. Why? Well, so I could get up in the morning and watch the sun come up over those mountains with a hot cup of coffee in hands. Nothing better.
I should also mention that I wouldn’t have my cell phone and there would be no internet of any kind. NONE. No way for any distractions to get to me. First instinct would be to take my fiancé with me to said cabin, however, she HATES the cold, so if I was going to it I might have to just make it a long weekend and not an entire week!
That’s it. Nothing fancy, very, very simple. That’s all I need. A small, warm, quiet place, a comfortable chair, maybe a view, I’m set. Now, that being said I can write just about anywhere, but if it was all up to me, yup, that would be it!
