Virginia Woolf said, “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction”.
Well I admit to having very little money and I don’t plan to write fiction – well not much, anyway, as I tend to write comment pieces and (of course) eulogies. But I now have a room of my own; that is, a writing room.
I have yet to relocate my favourite dictionaries and thesauruses and my (two or three) dictionaries of
quotations into my new room, but they will soon be installed
- when I decide exactly where to put them. In the meantime, I am enjoying the simple joy of sitting in my own room, checking out the internet, reading my emails and making a list of topics to write about.
Plus, I face a window that looks directly at our front porch, so any visitor or intruder will be instantly visible.
What more can a girl want?
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
