My Writing Ramblings: My Writing Space

rp_Laura-Book-300x2251-300x2251-300x225-300x225-1-300x225-1.jpgHello 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 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.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
