A Place to Call Your Own


I am, to say the least, rather particular about where I write.  It has always seemed self-evident that good writing only happens in spaces that are cramped, quiet, filled with places to stack papers, and rather dark.  I am continually surprised that other people feel differently.

Curious about how the masters work, I've cobbled together some pictures of the places that famous authors do their writing:

(1) The Guardian has a wonderful series of portraits of writers' rooms.

(2) Famous "man caves."

(3) Fun interactive feature on Roald Dahl's writing hut.

(4) Finally, here's a delightful article from the N.Y. Times about constructing one's own dream work room.

I hope you all find a mokki of your own.
