A NEW BEGINNING 2015: Autumn Fog

Autumn Fog    It’s August and temperatures are soaring.   Anything cool is a welcome relief.

Autumn Fog is the new color of my “writing room.”  It conjures up images of a misty pond or lake with hidden secrets.  The room is actually a guest bedroom.  But I spend a lot of time in there. It holds my grandmother’s bedroom suit and the aging leather recliner I inherited from my deceased father-in-law.   The multipurpose room holds memories of family and days gone by.  I think of the new color as grey with overtones of blue and green.  It is soft and soothing, and I hope encourages the muse that lives there.

I have been painting for the last week.  No, it is not a big room but I am an old person so it takes longer to paint than it used to.  I painted for two partial days, took a day off to rest my back and then went back to it. But Autumn Fog was worth it.  It is cool and warm at the same time and encourages my imagination.

I love the scent of a newly painted room – it smells clean like a fresh start.  I finished the first draft of my latest novel there and that is where I plan to go back over looking for plot holes and fleshing-out certain areas. I am sure the new color will bring out new and inventive ideas for my writing. It has already encouraged me to paint and redecorate two other rooms. Once I rest up.

It is the dog-days of summer and this one has been more humid than most.  So the idea of an Autumn Fog is even more pleasant.  I don’t know if I will really redecorate the other two rooms or not but a fresh start is always a good thing.

What colors do you have in your writing/reading nest?
