Writing Challenge: the Devil is in the Details 22/1/13
To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge or leave a link to it in the comments. (It would also be great if you could link to this post to encourage people to take part – the more the merrier!) Your post should be specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorite posts on Freshly Pressed on Friday.
3. Describe your writing space. Do you write on the couch? At the kitchen table? At a desk? In a restaurant? Describe your surroundings. What does it smell like? What is the light like in your space? What can you hear, feel, and see? You have three paragraphs to pull us into your space. Go.
Good Morning Dear Readers,
Todays post is being brought to you from my Lounge room. Ever since i got my MacBook Pro last year i have blogged from the couch, so much easier than being tied to a Desk/Mac desktop. With my daily journalling books behind me in the bookcase, easily assessable.
The room has all of the usual family clutter, books, magazines, tv remotes, coffee cups (coffee wafting through the air). The Inauguration 2013 is on TV (i am as i do every morning watching Sunrise). The grandmother clock ticking away and its pendulum moving from side to side, catching my eye every so often.
The Lounge room blinds are closed at the moment, with one of them cracked open a touch because it has caught the bottle in front of it. 6 bottles line the sill with a single Dark Purple/Burgandy almost black Calla Lillie in each. The sun when it hits the stain glass picture window sparkles on the wall opposite and creates a green and yellow rainbow effect, that always brings a smile.
