Hello all. How is everyone’s week going? Can you believe we are already hurtling toward the middle of February? It’s incredible really.
I have been a little obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, Lucifer and reading loads this week. I always like to snuggle in and make my way through box sets when I am not working. It is so cold at the moment and I am not good with the cold at all to the point where the boy will make fun of me. I give as good as I get though.
Loads of TV time means lots of looking at Pinterest too. I can lose hours on that and You Tube.
I’ve been looking a lot at office spaces (I have been doing a little bit of planning as I have been looking at homes for my characters. Promise.) I am so nosey and love looking at other writer’s writing spaces.
I always think that having a lovely writing space is important. It’s also very personal. Some people like it to look minimal preferring not to have clutter. I always wonder how people manage this.
I like to surround myself with things that make me happy. I like to feel at home so my desk reflects this a little. OK, a lot.
There are a lot of photos of family and friends including the one from when I me Terry Pratchett (I am proud of that one,) and the one of me and the boy in front of Cinderella’s castle. There are candles because I always like to have a candle burning. I like to have some of my favourite quotes around me as you can see.
There is also quite a few Disney things; Cogsworth, Lumiere and Stitch being some of it.
Originally, I didn’t want too much on my desk but I found I don’t like it too minimal. I like all of this around me. It makes me happy.
This is what I call my grown up desk. It’s comfortable to work at. I love it.
The piece of advice I have this week to all you new writers is find yourself somewhere to write that is just yours. A nice place to write and a comfy chair. I can’t stress comfy chair enough.
Until next time writing people.
