What inspires you most?  A tree house?

Or maybe a house on the water?

A castle with a garden for all the five senses?

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. 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.

    1. 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.
