The Guardian is doing a series on writers' room. This is eye candy for me. Always, always, always this woman finds a space in the rectory for myself. It's just taken for granted that Stephen needs an office but I'm telling you a momma needs a place of her own too. Thank God for Virginia Woolf and my momma and grandma. They all knew: "A woman must have money and a room of her own." My grandma was born in 1880, taught until she was 27 and then picked out a 19 year old stud of a husband to share the remaining 59 years of her life.
