It's been a month since I started using the new office in earnest. I must say, I'm pleased with the results. Since the kids went back to school I've written two longish short stories, plunged ahead with about six thousand words on Herne, a Heritage Matters article for the local paper and have been revisiting Loremaster with an edit.
The office is slowly growing into an ideal work space. The shelves are filling with reference material and some favorite novels. The table by the window currently holds a stack of library books and papers from the County Archives - research for a story on local haunted houses for the Heritage column. And the couch - now called my "Thinking Couch" has been used a couple times for thinking and only, I'm glad to say, for two actual naps (but what naps they were...).
All things considered it has been a very good month.
