I’ve always written in bed. Now, I’m commissioning a writing shed.
I’ve always paid all my writing money into the family account. Now, I’m only paying in a percentage and investing the rest in my own development and promotional activities.
I used to write in the early mornings, and that worked for me. Then my life changed. Now, I snatch bits of time and it doesn’t really work well at all. That’s got to change, too. Hence the shed. I need to be out of the house for the ‘Mum, where’s my socks?’ hour, the ‘I forgot to tell you, I’ve got a tasting tonight and won’t be home until ten,’ hour, the ‘I knew I could catch you if I rang early,’ hour. Now, I’ll be in my shed. You can disturb me for blood, bones and fire…and maybe zombie invasions.
I’m changing. I’m going back to being what I was all along, underneath.
A writer, first and foremost. Every day.

Oh, you lucky thing, I’d love a shed! I was just interrupted with ‘Mum, I’ve got sunburn, will you rub some lotion into my back’. You’ll have to let us know what you are planning on putting in your shed – writing spaces are always fascinating.
What a brilliant idea. Good luck with it and enjoy being you again
I’m in a ‘reassess and set decent writing goals’ stage, so this is a timely post for me. No shed on the horizon, but more priority given to writing.
a shed of ones own? how…literary.let the little darlings go sockless it’ll toughen them up and provide fodder for their memoirs!
