I’ve mentioned that I prefer to write in front of a window,
even better if that window
faces the sea.

There is surely some subtle connection between the vistas we face and the writing we accomplish, as a dream takes its mood and imagery from our waking life.
LOL…I just asked if this was on the ocean and you answered it in this post! lol Just love this SO much 🙂 I adore the sounds and sights of the sand and sea *sigh*
Thanks so much, Donna! I love it too : )
Cynthia… A captivating cozy setting… and all that glass! ‘Write’ ON! ~:)
Yes, Helena, I love all the windows.
Quite naturally… I be curious…
as to ‘privacy’ with all those windows… 🙂
AND… as to how your cozy cottage
be kept cozy warm in winter time?
Shades on the windows, Helena (you can actually see the strings) and heat!
Check! Double Check!! 🙂
A North Carolina friend used to say that people are either “mountain people” or “ocean people,” never both. Maybe. But I know there are “wide open fields” people, too, b/c I have met folks from the plains states who say they dearly miss that landscape, and I’ve recently discovered that a couple of my friends consider themselves “river people.” Here in Maine I found the rocky coast beautiful but also forbidding, even alien, at first. But I have grown to appreciate it. The snowscape used to completely weird me out, as well–it was so unnerving to not see grass for many months at a time. Now I look forward to it, although this brutal winter wore me out. Anyway, I am definitely that “ocean person” my friend talked about. I enjoy other landscapes but nothing beats the ocean, both for sight and sound. Oh, and that salty air, too. Mmmm.
And so. What do these landscape preferences mean for our writing? What??
Oh yes, ocean person and looking at it right now.
Interesting question about what landscape preferences mean for our writing… I want to give that some thought.
