The Writer’s Den

“Over the lockdown period I decided it would be a good time not only to write the novel aptly titled ‘VIR(US)‘, but also to build a place to disappear to think, muse and write. After some serious research and advice from close friends I built single handedly, the Writer’s Den.”

“I just wanted to build. I wanted to get away from ‘the screen’ and immerse myself in a different mental state, a place I don’t go to often enough unfortunately, like many in this epoch of Zoom meetings and digital interference. It felt good to dig, saw, measure, feel the dirt in my hands and learn.”

“I built the Den through wood I found in skips, was given and found on Facebook. It felt good to recycle goods. I learnt so much and would do it differently next time, but it was an excellent learning process. The building has only just begun and I thank all those dearly who helped me along the way.”
