Interview and a Giveaway

I was recently interviewed by Hallee Bridgeman who wrote, “I LOVE meeting authors like me, who had no intention, understanding, desire, or spark to write until well into adulthood. It makes me feel a little more “normal” among us writers. Please read on and enjoy Dianne Marie’s interview as much as I did.”

After you’ve read the interview—discovered facts you may not know about me, woo-hoo, and hopefully been inspired—for a limited time, you can enter to win my newest e-book release.

I’d love it if you’d follow my blog, leave a comment, and/or join my Facebook page where we can connect more frequently.

I wish you the best with the giveaway.

Please note: The giveaway has ended. Thank you for participating. I wish everyone could have been a winner.


 

Create Your Perfect Home Workspace

DSC04403_edited-1

 

This is where my stories take shape—in a converted bedroom after the nest had emptied years ago. When I began working here, the desks were joined in an L-shape. The longest section was out of reach and therefore unused. So, my husband redesigned the desk. Since then, every inch is used. (I cleared off the mess for you!)

My space is much different from Mark Twain’s pink office with a view behind the desk and a pool table in front. Unlike his office design, I prefer to look out at the perennial garden and twisted oak limbs. If it were possible, I’d have French doors, swing them open, and let nature freewheel inside, like Virginia Woolf’s writing shed.

But on occasion, we have rattlesnakes.

Sometimes, I’m interrupted by birds outside, on the window ledge, cottontails chewing on the grass, and a seasonal turkey whose head pops up like a Jack-in-the-Box to peer inside. Often, on the weekends, my husband taps on the window, bidding me come outside to engage in a different type of work.

Physical labor.

There are many forms of labor, each shuffled into our lives by choice, necessity, or passion. The space in which we work matters a great deal. It doesn’t have to pretty. It doesn’t have to be a separate room. Your work surface doesn’t have to be a desk. Depending on your needs, a folding table, like I once used, is oftentimes sufficient.

Creating a perfect home workspace just needs to be comfortable in ways that mentally recharge your creative focus.
