Feng Shui(ing) My Writing Space

So is there anything to this feng shui stuff? At least regarding a special area set aside for performing work. Sometimes I find it difficult to write, and I wonder if this has anything to do with how I write. Currently I use a laptop that sits on a box I never unpacked from my untimely move to Chicago. And I sit in a whole that used to be my futon. (I kicked said whole after the Ravens' loss to the Pats last season.)

To say I'm comfortable would be an utter lie.

I'm miserable, in fact. And often I'll step away from the computer, or rather push the box away from me, and sit somewhere else and watch TV. I need a dedicated writing desk and accompanying chair. Preferably not facing the television. I really need to create a comfortable writing space that I can sit inside and concentrate and treat writing like a job. And I'd even get some homework done once in a while...

I never imagined I'd become so high maintenance. But here I am, possibly coming up with another excuse. But for what, I wonder? Regardless, I'll hold off writing tonight until I get back from Ikea!
