I’m finally back in my room, ready to start writing again. It feels good to have my room back. It feels good to have my desk back. It feels especially good that I put my desk at a decent height, unlike last time. I’m also glad I splurged and bought myself a decent office chair. It rolls and spins, and I’ve been gliding around my room like an idiot.
It’s taken me the better part of two months to completely gut and piece together the room. It was in desperate need of upgrading. I spent a lot more than I had planned, and there are still a few things left to buy. The wall behind my desk, for one, is unfinished. I plan to build a shelf to match my desk to hang on the wall. The backsplash will be a faux stone tile, somewhat like brick. Neither project will be cheap, but it’ll be worth it. I’ll have a place to house my books at last!
The end result will be that I’ll be out of excuses to use on why I haven’t been writing. I have my quiet space back, a proper writing area, and a comfy chair to sit in. I guess I don’t have a coffee maker in here, but since I’m not a big coffee drinker, I’m not sure that’s an excuse.
For now my area is a little sparse, but I’ll soon have my shelves and some lame motivational poster up at well. I need to hang up some pictures. Actually, I really want to hang up my college diploma. I’m really proud of that accomplishment. It may motivate me in that it’s a goal I’ve actually achieved. I should look into getting it framed.
I sent my book to a friend for her to read. I want to get some input on that. I believe in that book, though it’s not without some issues. Hopefully, if she reads it, she can point me in the right direction. I’ve had a few people give me their input, but I value anything anyone is willing to give me.
I’m going to spend the next hour or so lost in my book, writing away, making up for lost time. You know what? I don’t think that time was lost at all. I think it was an investment in me. I started out with a run down, dilapidated, out-dated room, and created a warm and inviting space to both sleep, read, and write in. While I don’t plan to stay here forever, for the time being, it’s what I need.
