Where Writers Write

Many years ago I saw this picture of the writing shed in Wales where the Dylan Thomas penned some of his famous poetry and thought, "Yeah, well I could write great poetry if I worked in a room like that!" Unfortunately, I now know better. However, I still enjoy seeing where writers practice their craft, and apparently, so do others.

The Guardian has a webpage with links to photos of the rooms where contemporary British authors do their writing. I love the pictures partly because it doesn't appear that they were "styled" for the cameras, but instead, left in their natural state, revealing each author's preferred creative style: neat and organized or cluttered and chaotic.
