You Are Where You Write

Where do you write? At a desk? In your favorite chair?
In the closet!

Great thinkers, like Albert Einstein, don’t mind a little clutter. This is where he worked.

Can you find Wolfgang Danspeckgruber, university professor and author of The Self-Determination of Peoples, in his writing space?

Would you have imagined Nigella Lawson, chef and cookbook author, surrounded by so many books?

Or the children’s book author, Eric Carle, in a messy studio?

Playwright George Bernard Shaw built a  hut that rotated with the sun to catch the best possible light all day. He spent the last 20 years of his life working in the spinning hut, where he produced works like Pygmalion and Androcles and the Lion.

Lew Wallace, author of Ben Hur, wrote sitting in a chair.

I have no idea who designed this Cadillac of writing chairs, but isn’t it amazing?

But not as amazing as this:

Some not-so-famous writers prefer to write in closets.

And others, in coffee shops.

I would love to write here in the woods!

Around the World– “Glamping” Retreats for Writers

“Glamping”, or “glamorous camping”, is a popular retreat option among artists and writers. Glamping isn’t traditional camping, instead it means vacationing in a small space with amenities you wouldn’t find in a campground. What better way to get inspired than by staying in amazing and unusual places in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote areas?

Check it out!

How about a woodland treepod? The inside of this one in Cornwall, United Kingdom doesn’t appear very writer friendly, but look at the surroundings. Who wouldn’t want that!

If Sci-Fi is your thing, then there’s this UFO in Norrbotten, Sweden. It comes with its own retractable ladder. (But you’ll need to provide the steam to fuel your work-in-progress. “Welcome, Earthlings. Writer on board.”)

Those with a more eclectic and exotic style can book a stay in this Indian-inspired “folly room” in Rhône, France. All decked out with flamboyant trinkets and curiosities, there’s even an elephant in the room! Windows overlook the Beaujolais hills.

Maybe you want some tent “glam”? Consider this one, the “Imagination Yurt” in Baixo Alentejo, Portugal. This tent has it all: a private beach, resident peacocks, WiFi, electric lighting, double canopy bed and and an ensuite bathroom. Now, that’s glamping!

Maybe ice-cold, Arctic nights and the Northern Lights are your thing. There’s a glamping getaway for that, too, Esko’s Cabin On the Lake (literally) in Inari, Finland. This heated pod comes with a private bathroom and Esko, your host, who tows your pod by snowmobile onto the ice-covered lake.

It’s back to the United Kingdom for the last stop on our glamping tour. I write freelance for Christian publishers, so this would be my choice for the perfect glamping retreat. Angels Tabernacle in Herefordshire, United Kingdom. Isn’t it quaint? I’m inspired. How about you?
