Writing Space

31 May

A couple of days ago I cleaned off my desk in the den.

I literally was hoarding a couple of dozen books on and around the thing (and I’m kicking myself for not taking a picture)! Not only were books living on my desk, but I also had a handful of notebooks and writer magazines as well. It definitely looked to be the messy, disorganized space of a writer who writes by the seat of her pants rather than following outlines.

At the moment, I basically have one notebook, a little stack of drawing supplies, and a charger or two. Despite me having “cleaned it off,” I’m still sitting here on the couch with my laptop.

My desk chair isn’t even in our den. It’s been more or less camping out in my bedroom with the desktop computer since Rachel and I have been gaming more often lately.

I’ve read up on how writers usually have their own little nooks, a safe haven for them to communicate with their muses and just get in the “work” mindset. I don’t have that. If and when I write, I go where I’m comfortable, be it the couch, my bed, or my desk.

Scheduling is fantastic and all, especially with the measly 24 hours we have in a day, for a writer’s workday, and I need to create one for myself. Rachel gets tons done with her to-do lists, and I want to do a lot more to improve my writing, drawing, and general life skills (because adulting is hard). However, schedules and I were never on good terms. Perhaps it’s time to make a truce.

Having a clear work space may appeal to the scheduling gods.

How about you? What’s your writing space like?

    My desk currently needs to be cleaned again. Unless I leave my laptop on it, it gets buried under random things in less than a day… I’ll get it clean again eventually.

      Haha, even when I did routinely keep my laptop on my desk, it was always in danger of being caught in an avalanche of piles of stuff on either side. xD

    At the moment my desk is rather tidy, which is something I really love, because there is even enough romm to move te laptop aside to make room for paper and folders. But my desk at my parents flat is really untidy.

      Ah, but do your parents know where everything is on their desk? XD Having room for more than just a laptop is great! Glad you are enjoying your neat space! 🙂
