Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

A (writing) room with a view

View 1

I thought I’d give you a look at what’s outside my writing room, here at the new manse. I have my desk facing a wall, because otherwise I’d just gaze out at the trees all day long instead of writing, and that would defeat the purpose. Still, it’s nice to swivel the chair every so often and have a look at the view.

‘Round about 11 each morning, it gets warm enough to open the slider and let the magnificent pine and oak aromas waft in. Then it really gets hard to concentrate.

Sometimes I wonder if meditating on nature isn’t more rewarding than word-whacking my way through another novel…

Here’s another shot:

    Sweet setup, mrnie. I hope you get to write a lot of good stuff there!

      Ever the optimist! At least a lot of revising will happen here…

      Now if I could just put the move behind us for good and start writing!

    I can’t think of anything worse. All those interruptions from bird song, woodpeckers, squirrels. It would be torture.*

    *Just kidding. It looks gorgeous 🙂

      It is irritating. I think I’ll get used to it, though.

    You’re killing us here… Need to hook up the Smell-O-Tron so you can pipe the sweet smells to the rest of us.

    Your view is as good as having an ocean view, I think. Happy writing with such great inspiration.

      Thanks, Gretchen. I actually think I prefer it to an ocean view. Oceans are loud!

      I might have to draw the drapes most days, just to get some work done!

        I lived in Marin and had a view of San Pablo Bay.
