Virginia Woolf said, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” Well, I’m not a woman and I’m certainly no Virginia Woolf, but I too needed a room of my own to write my debut novel, We Take Care of Our Own. Sometimes that room wasn’t available, so I improvised. Below are the five most-utilized “rooms” where I wrote my book:
So, to recap, my upstairs office saw by far the most debut novel-writing action, with a roughly estimated 45 percent, while JJ’S Market & Cafe (RIP) came in at number two with 25 percent. My guest room office saw just 16 percent of the total writing time, while my car and my front porch rounded out the top five with nine and five percent, respectively.
Should I be worried that the two most-utilized locations wherein I wrote We Take Care of Our Own are no longer accessible to me?
