Thinking, writing, thinking about writing…

Sunday Escapism: Where Would You Go to Write?

New Forest Tree House Study Centre,

New Forest Tree House Study Centre,

What inspires you most?  A tree house?

Or maybe a house on the water?

A castle with a garden for all the five senses?

Chateau, Yvoire.

Chateau, Yvoire.

A book-lined garden shed? (Don’t think about damp and other practicalities for a moment!)


In my grandiose moments, I dream of escaping to the old Royal Salt Mine designed by that mad visionary Nicolas Ledoux.  It may be architecture on a huge scale, but it’s soothingly remote.

In the end, though, it will have to be sofa. Or maybe my garden deck.  Still, it could be worse, right?

  1. Marina Sofia – Oh, these are all gorgeous! Hmm…. I like that private book-lined garden shed – so cosy and comfortable looking. Damp or not it draws me in.

    I lean toward the book-lined garden shed, too. I’d also like to escape to a cabin in the mountains and write for an entire weekend while my family’s back home…but I don’t think my wife would go for that. So far me, it’ll have to be writing here in my chair while my two-year-old drinks juice, or in the dining room while my six-year-old runs around like a superhero.

  3. I like the look of the treehouse and the garden shed. My garden shed would definitely not look like that though, should I choose to buy and write in one!

  4. The castle for me, please (with a full staff of servants, of course). But not to write – I’ll just be the reader… ;)

    • Readers are the most important of all. As someone said recently, could all the writers and wannabe writers cease their activities for a year or so, so that readers can catch up with things.

  5. I like to sit by the sea

  6. Anywhere nice and quiet where I can listen to my words frolicking in my head, smiles ~

  7. ALL would be perfect as long as the kids weren’t there. ;)
