#00003: Stephanie Byrd
My name is Stephanie, and I’m a part of the Grub Street staff. My create space isn’t very much, but it is the spot where I am able to write my best work. After all, it’s comfortable to simply be on my couch with a pillow. And, yes, of course there are my dogs in the picture. That spot is one of their favorites so it’s almost impossible not to have at least one of them lying down at my feet while I’m working all the time. They wouldn’t move for the picture either, so everyone gets to see my lovely German Shepherds that I call a part of my family. They make me feel at home and safe, too, so that’s a plus.
All of this, while simple, gives me everything I need to do my work and helps me create some of my best work. It was where I worked on all my homework back in high school and my work for college when I’m back home instead of at my dorm. It’s also where I work the most on my novel that I am writing and other short stories. It’s the one place that I always have a muse, and I do not believe that will ever change - even if a dog is sitting on my foot.
