We have six kids and four bedrooms. The Only place I get any privacy is the master bathroom. For some reason, my kids, husband and even our two dogs leave me alone when I am in the bathroom. Imagine that.
My entire family is wondering why mom has so many stomach aches lately. You should hear the hushed comments at dinner "pss. man, mom sure does go to the bathroom a lot now, what's she been eating?" "I don't know dude, but did you see her carrying those books in there? Gross, she is turning in to dad. She must be reading on the toilet like dad does with the sport's section." Ha Ha tee hee. and they laugh.
But, I have the last laugh. They don't have a clue.
I suppose I feel sorry for my husband, he has to use one of the kid's bathrooms, but I am getting pretty cozy in mine. I cannot believe that this was the answer all a long.
Who knew? I can actually get work done? I can write. I can chart. I can make really big plotlines and plot charts & character boards and nobody bothers them or tells me to move them.
Don't worry, there is a bathtub & a shower (so the tub is a little hard to use at the moment) & I won't show you the toilet or my husband really would kill me.
and... just tonight, I moved another table and my desktop in to my bathroom.
Now if I could get a bed in to my bathroom, I would not have to leave until December 1st. I may play this mommy has a tummy ache game even after NaNo ends.
So how about you? Do you have a special place to write? Have any of you had to create make-shift writing spaces? I would love to hear your creative ideas? A closet? A bathroom?
