Creating A Special Place to Write

creating a special place to write

Something I do each night before I head to bed is clean my kitchen! My mom always used to say, “If the kitchen is clean, the whole house looks clean”. Depending on the layout of your house, this can ring true. I have an open concept in my house, meaning the kitchen is open to the dining room and the living room. So, if my kitchen is clean, it really does make the rest of my downstairs look clean too!

Why have I gone on this clean kitchen tangent you may ask; it is also true when it comes to our writing environment. If we have a special routine we create when it comes to writing it will help us look forward to it and feel comfortable and at ease when we do it.
Just as waking up to a clean house can make you feel good, creating a special place to write can make you feel good too.

A few things to try:

Create a clean and organized workspace.
Make it comfortable by using a comfortable chair.
Decorate with pictures and items that bring you joy.
Keep it clutter free.
Make a space separate from other spaces in your home.

Take a look at my workspace:
