Hello my beautiful virtual goddesses and gods! I have been tasked with an assignment to write about my writing space. Where do I write? What are my writing habits, what equipment do I use to write, and what do I need and want in a physical space? This task is the Day 6 assignment handed down by the awesome, free, online Blogging University course, Writing 101.
My Writing Space: A Beautiful Treetop Gazebo
As I am a virtual goddess, so too is my writing space virtual. As you can see above, one of my spaces is a lovely treetop gazebo, nestled in under a canopy of brilliant colored leaves or flowers, depending upon the season. Right now the canopy is ablaze in oranges and reds, resplendently dressed in Autumn colors. I also have a nice Shakespeare era desk on the ground beneath the tree. My writing space is comfy, well lighted, and on the table there is a nice glass of riesling faery wine and a few candied apples to satisfy my sweet tooth.
My Writing Equipment: The Humans’ Magic Box
In the photo at top of this post, you can also see me holding a small, purple magic box, a neat little item that comes from the world of the humans. This humans’ magic box allows me to store pictures in a place called Flickr, which, near as I can tell, is some kind of alternate dimension in space and time. In fact, my little purple magic box gives me all kinds of connections to many different places and spaces! I write these posts on that magic box, and then the box shows me the stories I write, the pictures I add, and it also shows me the stories and pictures that other people write too! I know, right – pretty amazing! The faeries and elves say that most humans have lost all their magic, but I think they’ve just channeled it into these nifty magic boxes.
My Writing Habits: Second Life Photography
My writing habits really are a by product of my Second Life photography habit. I love SL photography, and I created this blog to be a forum for my photos, and a space to write stories and posts inspired by my adventures in Second Life and the photos I take during those adventures. Sometimes I enter my pics into photo contests, and once I even won 2nd place!! Currently two of my photos are on display along with all the other entries into the Halloween contest that was hosted by the beautiful Lost Unicorn Gallery and Forest.
