“But one’s ‘space to write’ goes beyond the tangible: we also need the mental space to tell our stories.” Four bloggers reflect on what kind of space they need to write.
Wow – seeing as I haven’t posted all summer, this post on ‘finding space’ to write seems meant especially for me. But I suspect it speaks to a larger theme that many of us have in our lives, writers or not: finding the time and space for things we care about that (a) aren’t paying (at least right now), and (b) are not related to the needs of family, friends, coworkers, church, school, or other community members. Why do we put ourselves last? And why do we try to cram so much into our busy lives?
