Sylvia Petter's writing workspace before and after.

Mine is a real mess, but I do call it my "souk," and that’s where most of the writing gets done. I have a lovely pic of the place a few years ago when I was getting it all organized, but today it looks a bit different. I just took a pic now and, surprisingly, there’s a face there that for the life of me I can’t locate in reality. Maybe it’s that muse person? – Sylvia Petter
