I decided that I needed to post a picture of my writing space after Mrs. Austen asked me if I was still trying to write at my desk. I was also inspired by Marvin Allan Williams’ post on his writing space.
So there it is. My great-grandfather’s desk. He used to pay the bills sitting at it, according to my father. I remember when it used to have a fireman on a pole that would bobble down when you raised the fireman to the top of the pole. I still have that toy. There are little things I remember about the desk.
For years I’ve sort have used it as a catch-all. Not quite what it was intended for. It’s only been recently that I’ve started using it for writing and I’ve become quite attached. It’s still too cluttered by half across the top, but I have a lot of things I like displayed. Things that sometimes inspire, like the picture of the bathing cowgirl beauty. (it’s off to the left behind the perfumes.) Today I added a bouquet of wild violets and super velvety purple pansies. (blue vase) In a Martha Stewart, I read how you could use a flower frog to hold your fountain pens. Well, this house came with an antique lime green flower frog, and that is now being used for my two pens. (Center top)
Now that I have started writing here, I can’t really bring myself to write in other places like I used to. Oh sure, I write in bed still, sometimes, but I try to reserve writing for here. It seems that the time I have for writing has become mid evening. Sometime after 6pm, and if I’m lucky, I get two hours. Now, if I was making dinner, I couldn’t do that, but right now it works.
Hope you all enjoy. And do you have a spot you’ve carved out for your own? I never realized how nice it was, even though I wanted it. I find it is almost crucial. If anything, just so you use it for writing. It makes it like a little ‘dig’ to get your butt in gear.
