A Room of Her Own

Virginia Wolff spoke of women needing a room of their own. As the mother of four daughters, I can tell you, it is definitely something we need, but something we often never acquire.
Funny, when the girls were little, I sometimes had to hide in the bathroom just to think! That only worked for as long as they didn't realize I was there. Once they knew my whereabouts, they would sit outside the door talking to me. Somehow, it defeats the purpose of "alone" time.
Today, while I was resting after all the excitement from my daughter's wedding yesterday, my beloved, Roger found a site on writing sheds. Virginia Wolff had one, as did Annie Dillard and Dylan Thomas and many other famous writers.
I think I have found a new tool for my craft. As I sit now, writing, I am at a corner desk in my kitchen, surrounded by books and art, and my beloved. Don't get me wrong, this isn't bad; however, a place were I could be totally by myself would do wonders for keeping the creative juices from being staunched!
Perhaps, we can work on this. Roger found several great links for what are called, Tiny Houses. One give directions on how to build a tiny house from wood pallets. Neat way to recycle!
