Writing Space Tour with Janice Maynard

Author of MINDING HER BOSS’S BUSINESS

I don’t write at a desk. I have a desk…a very beautiful, oak, roll-top desk. But I tend to roam around the house when I write. Now that warmer weather has finally arrived, I love writing outdoors. We have a small screened-in porch. It’s so peaceful to work out there and watch the birds and hear the wind in the trees. This is my view across my yard and into our neighbor’s yard. The ridge in the background is one of the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Just out of the left side of the frame are several bird feeders my husband keeps filled faithfully. As I’m writing, I often see brilliant yellow finches, ruby-throated hummingbirds, and several varieties of woodpeckers from the very petite ones to the super-sized ones who make a real racket. The natural world, for me, feeds my creativity and helps keep me focused.
