Strangely enough, this image from the Internet is very similar to my own writer's den, only the typewriter is a modern laptop of course, and of course the firearm by my side is an M1911 - S.L.
"All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand."
- George Orwell, "Why I Write"
