Home Office at the End of the World: The Voyage Home

03/22/2010

I wear my Vader mask at night so I can so I can...

The work space came together about a month ago, but I was too busy being productive to blog about it. If you’ve kept up with the series:

Home Office at the End of the World
Home Office at the End of the World: Revenge of the Fallen
Home Office at the End of the World: The Year We Make Contact
Home Office at the End of the World: First Contact
Home Office at the End of the World: Money Never Sleeps

then you realize it’s quite an accomplishment, given where I began. What I found most surprising about the entire ordeal was how truly valuable carving out whatever piece of writing heaven in your price point is. Honestly, I wanted something to blog, a process to document, a project to complete. When I started it was all about the furniture and finding that one spectacular – yet modest priced – item that would somehow grant me the permission to claim my writer status without qualifications. Having the right desk or printer or fancy notebooks weren’t really the answer and all along I realized this. The willingness to put my faith in something so wholly inconceivable (in the beginning) was the transformation, not the fabulous furniture placement. So in some ways, writing the final chapter feels silly. Perhaps the process was exactly what I need to prove to myself and the universe that I am a committed writer.

Or maybe, like Dorothy it was there all along.

    Wow. I kept coming back hoping I could read more of your writing. And there is a new post. I found you via the HOATEOTW series and was amazing. You are such a witty writer and I share so many of your opinions on writing, pens (yes, why does a good pen have to cost so darn much!) and reading this was a real treat.

    Looking good, Snarky. Even though I like reading what you have to say, I sort of hoped your absence here was because you were having so much fun in your new home office. This was a really neat idea for a series. Really liked how you didn’t bore us with every screw or nail you purchased but just hit the highlights. Great job!

    Great series and wonderful accomplishment. Now you can click your hooker boot heels together three times and say: there’s no place like home office, there’s no place like home office…

    Glad to hear it. your perspective on office supplies is so different. more playful. I don’t that much about office supplies so I feel wierd about replying other places.

    Welp, it’s going, that’s for sure. When we put the addition on the back of hte house we didn’t take into account some of the problems we might have with relocating the garage on the other side of the house.

    right now we’re waiting out the rains and hoping to have walls and doors, I guess we’re not that hopeful, by June at the earliest.

    It’s really frustrating! Thanks for asking, tho.

    Redlami, your response got a good chuckle out of me.
