A Room of My Own: Angie Richmond

When Virginia Woolf wrote A Room of One’s Own, it spoke of a need for a writer to have their own personal space to read, reflect and think. The need for a special space, no matter how humble, is essential to any creative person.

I have decided to start a new feature on Yearning for Wonderland called “A Room of My Own”. This feature will highlight the creative spaces of my favorite writers and artists.

The first creative person featured is both a writer AND artist, Angie Richmond. She is the creative mind behind the 22 Things Exercise. You can visit Angie’s blog and should follow her on Twitter (@write_me_happy).

Q: Please describe your space, sharing any features that make it extra special to you.


A: My space is warm and inviting. It’s cluttered with a multitude of items that inspire me, including a statue of the Queen that waves (solar power is awesome!) My space is a shrine to all that is creative.

Q: What is your favorite/most inspiring object in this room?

A: Right now the most inspiring object is a headline from a newspaper that says “Imagination knows no bounds”. Different items inspire me for different reasons. How I feel in a particular moment, dictates which item inspires me most.

Q: What rituals do you go thru when you want to write in this space?

A: I make sure I have a cup of tea next to me along with paper and pens.

Q: Any other details you would like to share about your special room.

A: My space is ever changing. More items get added to my desk and corkboard often. Nothing has ever been removed.

Thanks to Angie for sharing her Room with us. Want to share your Room? Email me at annabbps AT gmail.com with a photo and answer the above questions.

Keep an eye on this space for more writers/artists and their inspirational spaces!

    Good call to start your new feature with Ms. Creativity herself! Angie has inspired me from the moment I met her on the Twitter…I shall now have to think about setting up my own writing milieu!

    I like the idea of this feature and your space! Having just moved house, mine is just a little corner in my room with post-its all over the wall. Pretty colourful though! xD
