MONDAY 7th OCTOBER 2013
After being absent for nearly four months, I now write my first ever blog post from my perfect little study. It’s a room that I have always dreamed of (well, apart from a dressie up walk in wardrobe) and finally Missuswolf’s StoryLand is a reality.
There has been good reason for my absence, although I am regretful that I have kept away so long. My last blog post was dated 24th June and four days later we finally moved house! After eight years snuggled in our one bedroom flat, the other half and I managed to snag ourselves a quirky townhouse.
There was the upheaval of the move, a lovely friend’s wedding and then a fabulous holiday that we had planned prior to securing our new house. Since then, It has been project house and despite it being the smallest (and probably what may be classed by some as the ‘least important room in the house’) the study was the first room I decorated.
I finally have my desk perched in front of a window, very Carrie Bradshaw-esque, and if I lean far enough to the left, I can glimpse the sea. Perfection. Although it is painted, one wall is still to be wallpapered with a bookcase theme. A wicker chair is also required to replace the wooden one and my draping net curtain is yet to be hung. Most importantly, I am lacking the essential – a real life bookcase to house those that are currently imprisoned in my work locker, that try to make good their escape every time I open it.
In my mind of perfection, I wanted everything completed before making myself comfortable and writing again. Time and money, as precious as they both are, there never seems to be enough. The pictures went up this weekend and gave me the well deserved kick up the backside to sit down and write.
First steps first; catch up with my blog – hence the post.
Secondly, get editing the first ten chapter’s that have returned back from my editor, Jenny. Yes – that exciting event also happened over the summer – my chick-lit novel, currently titled Little Miss Pooshoe, has returned home after her first solo trip away into the big wide world. And I am yet to get stuck into her.
The clocks go back soon and I am very much a winter home bird, therefore a bit of a seasonal writer. I feel guilty at being inside in the summer when it’s nice and sadly my writing is the first thing to be neglected.
I now have my very own Missuswolf’s StoryLand that will provide the perfect writing sanctuary to retreat to and hibernate in this winter.
Love Missuswolf xxx
