…Work Space Blog Hop…LUV this one…

…some ‘Blog Hop’ requests are more unusual than others… I kinda like this latest one that my pal, Author, Pamela Beckford has tagged me into… show the good folks around the virtual quill-scrapers’ planet where yeez customarily produce yer masterpieces… easy-peasy for this ol’ Jurassic… my sidebar already carries a wee snippet about the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel in Abu Dhabi


…and as if that’s not enuff, I even smooch onto the sidebar  a bit about my walk through the Avenue at Etihad Towers to get there and back home again… who says yeez can’t at least pretend to be posh as a writer?…

…if it’s at all possible to ignore the (very) upmarket brands on show in the windows on the way through the Avenue, yeez eventually settle into the 5-star lobby of the hotel… its ’5-star’ coz yeez aren’t allowed to go higher than that or people just plain won’t believe yeez… truth be told, when I get into my scribbler’s mode, I can write anywhere… noise, television, (except when football’s showing) are no distraction… similarly, I enjoy the ‘people-watching’ aspect of being in a grand hotel lobby… all human life form is there, Mabel… and some yeez have yer doubts about… being an international tourist and business resort hotel, yeez get all kinds in there… some plonkers, it must be said, some captains of industry, strutting around with  their attendant ‘go-fers’, but best of all are the various nationalities’ families… kids are amazing to watch… really… when I do get my head up, the respite from the laptop provides great amusement observing the antics of the children…and by the way, they don’t stand on ceremony when it comes to making pals… of all creeds and colour… that’s why it reinforces my notion that if yeez want a better WURLD, give it to the children to run!… so, my writing nest doubles as a spot to churn out my future Nobel Literature Prize stuff as well as a window on the WURLD… where better place to generate characters and ideas?…

…now others to tag, (only if yeez feel like joining in—no obligation, as usual), howzabout these:

D.S. Butler

Matt Hilton


John Holt

Gordon Milne

Alex Shaw

…see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!…

    What a beautiful inspiring place in which to write! I have to say, I heartily approve of making your office somwhere which does not have the detritus of family life screaming at you to clean it up, no dog batting puppy-dog eyes at you pleading to be taken for a walk, and some friendly yet distant person feeding you endless cups of coffee as you write… yes, something to be said for that indeed. May have to give it a try…

    It goes to show you don’t need some rodent infested, third storey garret to get you inspired to write Seumas. 🙂

    I dunno if this is coincidence, Chinese whispers or imitation being a form of flattery, but by jove, this looks like my blog hop! (Minus the logo.) https://cateartios.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/inspiring-spaces-blog-hop-share-what-ignites-your-creativity/

    Ahhh, I am still wanting the loft in Paris for myself…


  4. Very swish and ritzy! Sounds like an excellent place to write. People watching is always fun and even better, I can imagine that it gives you lots of ideas.
