By Patricia Bates
As an author one place that I think we can all agree on is where that magical place is we'd love to claim as our own. Different people see it differently, what is a wondrous place for one person may be nothing more than drudgery for another.

For me, it’s about being surrounded by the smell of books, of ink, and the warmth of sunlight falling on my shoulders. High windows opened to let the scent of roses fill my office. Hardwood polished to a shine, shelves full of books. Behind my ornate desk filled with top of the line computers and jars of pens with an endless supply of paper, a hand carved filing cabinet with delicate drawer handles. All lend themselves to the peace and tranquility of my writing time...broken only by the low throb of music in the backgrounds.
Fantasy? For me it’s not about a fantasy - it’s a goal. Something I can use to drive me when my writing is stumped or I have need of a boost. We all deserve to have that dream, the aim of something more. Be it a tiny moss covered cottage on the hillside, or a castle overlooking the rocky shores, its part of us. Being a writer isn't just about creating worlds and characters for others but creating a very special place for ourselves where dreams can become reality and the muse is always content...but never bored.
