Thank you for hopping over from the web site of the very blue-rosed author Collette Cameron. I’m sure her gorgeous website is indicative of her writer space.
This is going to be a fun blog to put together. After the quite serious, in depth interviews I’ve written over the three past weeks, this one will be much lighter. What you see above is the pool in the activity center of our development. I plot, research and write chapters on my Ipad in any weather. People have learned not to interrupt me, because my startle response is so strong, it could cause them to bounce themselves into the water. I only have to be careful in the direct sun so that the Ipad doesn’t get too hot and fizzle out. I love writing near water. Any man made or natural works for me. When we lived in Brooklyn, New York, I wrote at the Silver Gull Beach Club in Breezy Point, Queens. I wrote feature film and TV scripts there in the ’80’s and 90’s then when I began my journey into holistic healing in the mid ’90’s, I did a major part of my course work there.
I also love my home office. In Brooklyn, my office was in the basement of our house, completely mahogany paneled. It was the original from 1928. Spectacular.This office is the one in which I held my alternative therapies practice, taught metaphysical and empowerment workshops for women. Too bad those pics are in storage so I can’t share. Two iguanas over the years shared the space with me. It was their home since the rest of the house was air-conditioned. Spirit, the friendly one, lived for seven years, and Zeus, the vicious one, lived for eleven. They lived in a 75 gallon tank under one of my ritual alters. This is my writerly space here in Florida. I’ll dissect it in the pics. The first is an overview.
So there you have it! The two places I love to write, delve into my fantasies, the insanities, and the heads of my characters. Now onto another awesome writer who I bet has a phenomenal writerly space, Xio Axelrod.
