Since I started writing four years ago, I’ve dreamed of having my own special room for writing. It will be an oasis, a place to relax, a place where the magic will happen. And every day will be a writing retreat. But then, what writer doesn’t dream of such a place.
And then I had an idea. Why not convert the workout room, which only gets used in the winter months, into the room of my dreams? As the thought occurred, a vision began to form. Ideas stalked me until I could think of little else. But then, I still had to get my husband’s concurrence. After all, what if he had similar plans to convert the room into a man cave?
