Week 47: My Writing Space

This is going to be somewhat short to prevent boredom. I wrote out an eight-hundred-word post describing in detail my desk and what surrounds me. Then I thought…hmm, that’s way too much. Instead, I took a picture, but still wrote too much.

My older desk is a corner desk in my living room. See below. Once I turn my laptop off at night, this room becomes my living room again. During the day it is my office. I use a laptop, or two. A shredder sits beside my desk on the left. A TV sits to my right in the center of shelves between the kitchen and living room. I don’t watch TV during the day, but I’ve been known to be on my computer at night with the TV on, like when I’m writing this post. I see pictures of my boys on the shelves, and I’m in some of the pictures with them. My dog’s ashes are in a polished wooden box within my view. I can’t explain it, but it makes me miss her a little less to think she’s close.

Yes, that is my bike. There is no where else to store it. I know, I know…

I have a variety of “things” on my shelves, including my photography and writing books, my own and others, DVDS and more.

The greeting card above sits on my desk in a frame. Some of you have seen this before in a previous post.

I can’t count the number of Sticky-Notes I have around my laptop area. They are hot pink at the moment. This lady loves Sticky-Notes. A few candles sit near. Two large horse pictures are on the long wall I face. One is black and white and one is a paint horse in color. In the center of the wall, in the middle of those horse pictures, is a long, rectangular picture of a ranch setting with a barn and one horse within the fenced area. The picture is black and white, but the barn has an American flag in color—the only color in the picture. I posted this black and white horse picture and other special things in an earlier post.

Basically, my writing space is important to do my job and other desk-related work, like paying bills. Sometimes…well, okay, often, I eat here. I feel good that I’m surrounded by items and sights that have a special meaning to me.

Don’t y’all forget this is a BLOG HOP. Let’s take a peek at more author writing spaces. I’ll be visiting a friend this afternoon so I’ll catch up with your posts as soon as I can.

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving. My youngest son and daughter-in-law came home to visit. We had a nice couple of days together. It was fun that we could share their pictures from their honeymoon in Ireland. They had withdrawals so one day we went to an authentic Irish Restaurant near me. Yum. Enjoy your weekend.
