Writers’ Spaces

by Jeff Abbott on June 9, 2009

Here’s a fascinating series of photos of the writing offices of several well-known science fiction and fantasy authors. I’m always interested in other writers’ offices. I can’t believe how many books some writers have, and I like seeing that some offices are chaotic and others are spotless. My office is somewhere in between, I think. Wish this photographer would do a series on crime writers’ offices. . .

    Very cool. I remember reading in Stephen King’s On Writing about how he used to “have” to work in his study with the door shut. Then (when he got off all his drugs) he realized how much he was missing out on, and moved his desk to be in the living room with his family. It’s just fun to know how different writers do it.

    I’m hoping that if this one does well, then I can go back and do mystery writers, romance writers, etc. etc. etc. We shall see. I’m looking for the right publisher at the moment.

    Cool rooms. Delany’s picture makes my head spin. I remember talking to one writer, who will remain nameless due to his not knowing I’m writing this :) , who likes to write in a la-z-boy arm chair with a hospital tray/stand holding his computer over his lap with a big-screen TV in the far end of the room often playing the same movie over and over. He writes mysteries.

    Based on those pics, I think I’m short on books in my office. I write for teens and tweens. Here’s a peek at my space:
