I suppose I am overdue for writing another bit about where I do my writing work. I’ve done a number of such pieces in the past, of course (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, if not elsewhere), many of them looking at places I have lost. (I do still have the car, though.) But in 2021, my family and I relocated, and the place where we live now is one we don’t intend on leaving anytime soon. Given that I’m freelancing for the most part, I’m spending a fair amount of time in the house we’ve bought, and more specifically in the office I have in that house.
There is, admittedly, still some work to do on the place; I’ve not managed to get all of the boxes unpacked, clearly, but most of the books I’ve kept are out on the shelves where I can get to them. And I am trying to get to all of them again, not only for my ongoing rereading project, but also in the interest of doing some of my freelancing work. Among others, I recently had cause to look at several transcriptions and translations of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight I have, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without having my office even so set up as it is now. Too, with the books out, some of the dreams I have had might, maybe, begin to come to fruition.
So much is to say that I am even more open for business now than I was before. I’d be happy to put my again-accessible apparatus to work for you, if you’d have me. Please let me know via the form below!
