Earlier this week, freelance writer and creativity coach Cate Russell-Cole tagged me and others in her post Inspiring Spaces Blog Hop: Share What Ignites Your Creativity, where she invited us to share our “creative” spaces. I decided to do it in the form of a video log…hope you enjoy it! (Psst…it’s the “makeup-free” version. I wanted to give you the authentic experience, LOL).
In the spirit of keeping the inspiration going, we are to tag more writers to share their inspirational spaces with you.
I tag Piper Bayard, Susan Spann, Jill Kemerer, Debra Eve, and Diane Capri! Let’s see your writing caves, ladies! (and apologies if you’ve already been tagged).
Before they respond, I’m going to play “detective” and speculate about what these gals will show you, based on my Facebook interactions with them. Hmm…I’ll bet for Piper, cool weaponry is involved; for Susan, I seem to remember there’s a great outside view of bird feeders (I’m envious of your hummingbirds, Susan!); for Jill, definitely coffee and maybe a stash of M&Ms; for Debra…perhaps some cool archaeological artifacts and pics of stunning ruins; and for Diane, well, she’s a snowbird for part of the year, but I know her adorable little dog will be there (a min. schnauzer, I think), no matter what her location.
How’d I do? 😉
No matter what your profession, what things do you like to keep in your workspace that inspire you? I’d love to hear from you.
Until next time,

Ooh, you’re good, Kathy! I DO have M&M’s pinned to my bulletin board. Hey, they’re a necessary part of my writing process. 🙂
I like how you can spread out over the table. Having a flat surface to scatter my notes and such makes all the difference!
Wow, pinned to your bulletin board…very efficient! Can’t wait to see your writing space, Jill.
Yes, I do like to spread out, and it’s really nice to have that open space. 🙂
I love your vlog, Kathy! Beyond seeing your space, it was nice to hear your voice. I’m very aural, so hearing the timbre and accent of your voice added so much to seeing your writing space.
Thanks so much, Elizabeth! I know what you mean about that. It really helps you feel that you’re getting to know the person a bit better. The first time Jenny Hansen had a workshop and used “Go To Meeting” where we could hear each other talking, that’s all we could jabber on about for the first five minutes. 😉
Kathy – What a great meme, and thanks for doing this. What a great way to get to know you a little better! I love your space by the way. Oh, and you don’t need makeup.
Thanks so much, Margot! It was fun to put together. And bless you for the makeup comment. 😉
That was awesome Kathy! I think you outdid yourself this time girl. Love your office and writing space. Very inspiring. Hmm. I forgot to put a picture of my desk in my post. lol. Ack! I really don’t do well with sort of stuff. But you rocked it!!! Love your voice by the way. It added an intimate touch to your post. 🙂
We definitely have to see just a teensy bit of your space, Karen! Thanks for the kudos, my friend. One of these days, we’ll meet in person!
Kathy, thanks so much for a fun and inspirational post! I’ll be watching your tagees with great interest. (Did I just invent a new word or a nonsense word.)
Keep writing, I love your work.
Cate, thanks for the encouragement! You made my day. And thanks, too, for your fab idea. It has sort of migrated over to Facebook in addition to blogs now. 😉
Love this, Kathy! You are so brave to make a vlog. I would totally not have the nerve (nor the techie ability). Love seeing you “in action,” and seeing where you hang out when you write. I think the view out one’s window is uber important.
It’s funny about the vlog…I usually feel as you do about doing one, but this time, things just fell into place. The tech part was the most challenging. 😉
Thanks, Kathy! I’m so good on this — a few months I finally decided to carve out a little corner of the living room for writing and I love it. And yes, all sort of interesting things + tons of books live there. Pics to follow shortly!
Hi Debra, sounds like my timing is spot-on. I’m looking forward to seeing your writing corner! 🙂
It’s so fun to hear you! I love it. 🙂 And your writing space looks much, MUCH better than mine. 🙂
Thanks so much, Jenny! Hope you’re feeling better! 🙂
