A Room of My Own: Lillie McFerrin

 Though I am still in recovery mode from the Faerytaleish Pinterest brouhaha, I could not resist giving you the next amazing artist in my “A Room of My Own” series, Lillie McFerrin (@lilliemcferrin on Twitter).

Lillie is an extra appropriate choice because she and Ruth Long are running a Blog Hop that is super fun and perfect for all those in flash fiction withdrawal over the end of #Faerypin.

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

A: A few years ago my Mom gave me this desk for Christmas. It is an 18th century library table and I adore its simplicity. It took me a while before I could actually use it for my desk because I was afraid to cause damage. But, that’s what it’s for and it has served me well.

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

A: Probably my Bose stereo. Music is what inspires me and keeps me writing. Namely Ray Lamontagne and Andy McKee.

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

A: I turn on my ‘writing tunes’ play list, put a big glass of iced tea on the coaster, and make sure everything on the desk is right where it should be (straight and whatnot ;) )

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

A: I recently added the dry erase board. I have plans to get a larger one, but for now this one works for me. It’s great when I have an idea to slap it up there so that it stares at me until I use it to create something.

Thanks to Lillie 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!

  1. Oh this space is lovely and does seem very very Lillie; except, I can’t figure out how dear wee Lillie doesn’t drown in that huge chair! Ah well, a little mystery to be solved at a later date.

    Loving this series, Anna – a great idea!!

  2. I’m envious of her writing space. I have a laptop and the couch, amidst the noise of my kids, the tv and all of the usual chaos of a large family. 🙂

  3. I love how colorful and organized your writing space is, Lillie!! The dry erase board is a great idea!! I can just picture you sitting there creating and writing while Lamontagne serenades you!!
