Express Yourself - Post a Picture!
This week for the Express Yourself Meme, we are asked to "Post a picture of your work area; cubicle, craft area, writing area, etc. Then explain what it is you do."
Now, my actual job involves working in a supermarket, and I'm fairly certain most of you will have seen one of those before, so I decided to post a picture of my writing area instead.
By the way, this picture was taken after I tidied up; imagine what it was like before! This is where I spend the majority of my time when I'm not at work, writing and blogging and occasionally playing The Sims 3. If I need to hand-write something, I move the keyboard out of the way and put my notebook on the desk.
As you can see in the picture, I always have a cup of tea next to me, as well as whatever book I'm currently reading (The Casual Vacancy in this case) with my notebook and my recently acquired Kindle Fire on top of it (I'm doing a post about this on Thursday).
I could do with a bigger desk really, and more storage space, but this is a good enough area for now.
Writing spaces easily become cluttered. I had to tidy up for my picture as well.ReplyDelete
They really do, I'm glad I'm not the only one that had to tidy first!Delete
It's pretty cool to see your writing space Laura, it looks fine to me although a little unruly though that's always good haha. I can't wait to read Casual Vacancy soon!ReplyDelete
It's very good, I'm about a third of the way through it :)Delete
Yeah it's usually a lot messier than that, I'm not a very tidy person!
I always work in a complete state of chaos with huge piles of stuff round me. Most of the time I sort of know where things are . . . .OK I don't but I muddle by and it gives the world of tiny little critters a fairy tale world of mountains and labyrinths to play in and I can then think of myself as DaedalusReplyDelete
Never thought of it like that before, I'm definitely going to keep being messy now! :)Delete
Thanks for sharing your writing area with us. I love "seeing" into the lives of others! :DReplyDelete
You're welcome, I do too, it's always interesting :)Delete
Hahaha! I loved how you tided up first. I would too. Every time I come back to my desk, I want to know who left it so messy? The answer is always the same, me.ReplyDelete
Haha I know, I couldn't believe how messy I'd let it get!Delete
I love seeing everyones working/writing area's! I kind of cleaned up my area too before I took the picture. Not that it made some huge difference. lol.ReplyDelete
Yeah it didn't make much difference when I cleared mine either, I seriously need more storage space!Delete
Interesting! Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your personal existence!ReplyDelete
Hehe tidy before the picture - that's cheating :PReplyDelete
Haha trust me, you wouldn't have wanted to see it before I tidied it!Delete
Are those speakers? Do you listen to a lot of music when you write?ReplyDelete
Yes, I usually sit and listen to music while I write, I don't really like to sit in silence :)Delete
