Tuesday Thoughts

One of my great guilty pleasures is the "Writer's Rooms" feature in the Guardian Books section, probably because it combines two of my passions: writing, and critiquing other people's homes.  On which note I must say that I simply do not understand writers who position their desks anywhere but directly in front of a window.  If I had to stare at a wall (even an expensive wall in one of London's most exclusive postcodes) all day I'd go mad.
