(creative?!???) MESS, or: a state of confusion and disorderliness

I’ve started working on a short essay on Maggie Nelson’s Bluets. the book keeps popping up in my imagination, so I’ve decided to try to write myself through my fascination. As for now I haven’t got any written stuff to show you, but this is what my desk looks like at the moment:

    Try photographing it in the dark, with a flash? Maybe the dark will reveal the light?

        Hey, neat idea: photograph in the darkness of space with a sun-flash!

  2. I’ve a bit of a thing about writing spaces as I have completely abandoned my study for my laptop at the kitchen table. A lot of this is to do with the light my study is too dark and too cluttered and I am not comfortable there. In contrast the morning room is bright and airy and I can watch the birds at the bird table and have easy access to the kettle. But I need to address the study issue, I just don’t know what the incentive is when I can have my mini office down here.

      Light is important. I have a beautiful light in my study, a big window facing the sea. And I think I will have to accept the messy desk – as long as I mange to keep my thoughts neat and sharp 🙂

      Sky blue, I couldn’t help but raise my hand here… its the exact same way with me. I have pondered ‘where to create’ for my whole life…truely… and here I am at 51 agreeing with myself that it’s okay, even a great thing, to wander off that discipline of Place. Creative thinking needs to rebel like that I think.
