I have a nice large writing space in my home. It is actually a home office that is open and bright. The walls of my office are a beige color and I have dark mahogany wood blinds on the window to block the evening sunset. The floor is mahogany hardwood with a large blue multi-colored Persian rug. On one wall is a large white built-in bookcase and it is home to hard copies of my favorite books and some of my writing books that pre-date Kindle. Also, on my bookcase is a television with cable/DVR hookup (which I really need to remove) and an IHOME to dock my IPOD to listen to Native American flute music or smooth jazz while I am writing.
In one corner of the office, I have a medium-sized computer stand with a desktop computer/printer setup and pullout keyboard. This computer is used for all of my non-writing life needs. My office desk is glass-topped on a wrought-iron base with a wrought iron/leather chair. I love this desk and purchased it before I started on my writer’s journey but now I realize it is no longer functional. I desperately need storage and my beautiful desk does not have drawers. Also, the desk is too high ergonomically for me to use my designated writing laptop so I have to use it on a plastic tablemate stand which I keep near my desk. I know at some point I will need to replace this desk as the only purpose it serves now is to hold all of my notebooks and writing class notes.
Overall, I am content with my writing space but it is in need of some mission organization and a makeover. Sometimes when I take a short break from my writing sessions I jot down ideas so I do have the start of plans for a makeover. However, at the moment, I am productive in my writing space and working to a self-imposed deadline to finish my novel. Perhaps when that is done I will take a break and enhance my writing space.
I would love to share a picture of my writing space but today it is just a little too cluttered to show.
