Writer Abi Elphinstone - author of The Dreamsnatcher series -  is also a shedworker, writing in a hut at the bottom of her garden which she converted into a writing shed. It is very atmospherically covered in ivy and has a wooden sign hanging outside the door which says: ‘In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.’ She has written an excellent and well-illustated blog post about the shed and her working routine (including photos of her tip top writing slippers and story mood-board) and there's an excellent rundown of her typical writing day in the shed at The Primary Times which often includes listening to Zen music or lighting a scented candle. Here's how it ends: 19:00pm: emerge from my writing hut like some kind of deranged mythical creature. Try to familiarise myself with ordinary life and ordinary people (while secretly day dreaming about goblins). Then I repeat the whole deliciously magical process the next day :) -------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.
