I’ve always been fascinated by Feng Shui, and I’m such a serious writer that I’ll try anything to make me a better writer. M.C. Simon offers ways to master our lives. She thoroughly explains what Feng Shui and Chi is and walks us through the steps to incorporate both, as well as the five elements, into our work space.
Some of her tips:
“Don’t face any empty wall. Decorate it, or else you will always have a feeling that you face obstacles.”
She suggests room dividers for those writers who have to work at home in a bedroom or the living room. A divider will separate our home life from our work life. A rug can also work because it marks the start of our writing zone.
“If you have no way of facing the door, and you must have your desk where you back will be toward the door’s direction, you can cure this situation by placing a mirror in front of your desk, so your eyes can observe the door behind you at any moment.”
Each section of a room had a purpose and M.C. Simon offers tips to utilize each area to bring out their benefits. EX: “Your career as a writer is represented by the north direction. In this area, place elements that symbolize water and metal.”
She also walks us through where to put our desk and how to decorate it.
As a writer and someone who loves to do interior design, I love all of her tips!
