Room to work in

While reading an interview with Jim Murdoch today as part of my critical reviewing studies I noted a remark from Jim that “[l]ike most people I like to see photos of the rooms writers work in…”. Since it’s going to take me a while to train myself up to the task at hand, I thought Jim’s remark might provide a good opportunity for me to summarise where my studies have taken me so far.

About Brad

Braden Karl Frederiksen still has the small wooden treasure chest that his evil Grandmother gave him for his 8th Christmas. He can't recall how old he was when he locked the key inside nor how he locked it in there. He occasionally gives it a rattle and wonders what's making that other sound. View all posts by Brad

    If you go to the photos page on Facebook there are a couple of pictures of what my office looks like. I’ve had the desk longer—a good ten years—and so I’ve produced quite a bit of stuff at it but these days I tend to work mostly in the living room on a laptop so I can be with Carrie. We hardly say a word to each other all day long but I like having her there and don’t find her at all distracting.

      Sadly I can’t see the pictures as I’m not on Facebook, Jim. It’s good to know though that the privacy settings are working. One thing I like about the fact that so many of the people I like having around are online is that I can have my companionship and my solitude too. It sounds like you and Carrie have achieved that balance in the offline world, which is quite enviable from where I am sitting.

    lovely workspace, bird’seye perception,
    it’s quite a goodsized space, i wonder if that might be one reason for the particularly clear and beautifully crafted writing of late ongoing, i should think twood be inspiration in open air and all the birds, green, nature

      It is a very pleasant and inspiring workspace, Kathi. The furniture and the scenery changes from time to time along with the locals and their activities. I like to think of it all as fully-furnished, although I did hear a complaint from one visitor today that the kitchen sink isn’t big enough.
