Dreaming of A Writing Cottage

Roald Dahl’s Writing

Ever since I saw the piece on “60 Minutes” about writer David McCullough, his process and his writing shed, I’ve been dreaming of a writing cottage of my own.

I know it’s asking a lot.

My office at home is fine; it’s got a chandelier, beautiful blue walls, pink curtains, and it does the job for now. However, someday, I envision having a little space of my own, separate and detached from the house. Someday…someday…someday…

A girl can dream, can’t she?

If it ever did come to pass, I know exactly what it would look like. I did some research and included some photos of my ideal writing cottage.

This is what I came up with.

What do you think?

  1. Oh they are all too neat and sunny for me! Too many distractions, too, I like a dark, quiet place – sometimes I’ll go and sit on the back patio in the dead of night just to get away from light and noise so I can concentrate.

  2. Just had a long conversation with my soon-to-be-spouse about this very thing. I badly want a writing studio outside of my own home. For now it’s a pipe dream, of course, but some day 🙂
