On a weekend (a summer day in 2015) in the capital of Sweden. I visited some places I want to recommend and want to work at.
It started with a step – one step through the floor. I stepped on the floor and put my foot through rotten floorboards. Later, I started to rip them up, every single plank and all rotten joists.
Now, I would fix my dream of a ”skrivarlya” in the shed (a secluded place where I can sit and write) – undisturbed. The process have taken long time. A new floor and new paint on the walls as well. White walls and floor in gray.
I also took the opportunity to wallpaper one wall. After a while, it was only minor interior details left to adjust. A carpet, table, hooks and a curtain of course, for example. In front of the window, a table for my writing and on the opposite side, space for garden tools etc.
I really looking forward to a summer with many writing moments. Maybe I can be finished with the book, or starting my second poetry collection. Today, I´ve already written a poem. A short poem in Swedish (see previous post).
The process and progress can be seen on the following pictures. I’m satisfied and hope I can keep the place in good condition. 🙂
