Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Virginia Woolf

I have always prided myself for ability to write wherever I find myself – a bustling coffee shop, the middle of a crowded train station, or a tranquil hideaway.


And, this in part is still true as is evident by my writing this post while sitting in a bus station. Even though I am flexible and have the ability to write in most places, I find myself increasingly yearning for an office as a home base.  This probably is a result of having been without an office for about eighteen months.  My home office was turned into a bedroom for my nephew and even though he moved out about six months ago, I still have not turned that room back into an office. I keep promising myself that I will clean and set up my office again.  Yet, I somehow never find time to do it even after I resolve to dedicate fifteen minutes per day to getting it done. Still no progress.

I have a bit of a a saboteur’s streak  in me – self-saboteur that is.  There is a part of me that recognizes I need a room of my own in order to write.  And, yet there is a bigger part of me that allows me to keep getting in my own way.

Yes, Virginia, a girl needs a room of her own if she is going to write. And, money doesn’t hurt either.

  1. Hello, Lynne! I have missed you. You do need a room of your own for writing! I bought some lovely tables from Lowes for a great price and put them together to form a desk. It works great. I think they are utility tables. They have a lovely tan color and work great! Glad to see you back and writing again! Hugs! ❤
