The Guardian has for some time been doing a series on writers’ rooms.  The most recent piece featured Michael Morpurgo:

“For many years, I wrote on our bed in the house. But there were complaints about ink on the sheets, dirty feet on the bed…”

I discovered the series by way of Joanna Penn’s blog, The Creative Penn. She showed a picture of her writing room and listed her writing tools.


Here's where I sit--looking in. My desk is under there somewhere.

I thought maybe we could create a chain of these posts. If you continue the chain, please leave a link in the comments so we can follow to your writing space.


Here's where I sit--looking out. Now you can actually see my desk.

My writing tools:

  • a candle
  • my sony vaio laptop that will fit in my purse
  • my printer
  • my digital camera
  • pens and pencils
  • index cards
  • notes everywhere
  • books
  • sparkling water with lime
