Good Idea... or Bad Idea?: Room Lighting options?

Ok, I have a room and the socket connected to my lightswitch just broke... meaning, the switch, as far as I know it, doesn't work, and the only way to get lighting in my room right now is a floor lamp at hte far corner of the room (the corner furthest away from the door).

I was just toying with the idea of installing a motion activated light, with the sensor pointed at my door, and another motion activated light in my walk in closet (which never had any lighting before).

so... good idea, or bad idea? I live in the room by myself and enter and exit it once a day.

My skill level is beginner, I've replaced a socket and a switch, and rewired a 220 socket to two 110s... I've installed a high voltage outdoor lamp in a pre existing circuit, but I've never, uhh... rerouted? redirected? move? a circuit before, so I'm kinda freaked out. Anyone know a good website on wiring?
