A writer's work space

I'm probably the most organized person you'll ever meet. Even my To Do lists have To Do lists. However, those organizational skills don't apply to my writing desk, which is pure chaos on the best day.

Does it bother me? Not at all. I love being surrounded by papers, magazines, books, notes on my latest WIP, journals (I have way too many of those), colored pens, at least six stacks of sticky-notes (of all different shapes, sizes and colors), candles, hand cream, my graphics tablet, my wallet (that credit card has to stay within reach at all times), and 20 tarot decks.

Knowing all that stuff is usually on my desk, you might wonder how I can even fit my keyboard and monitor on its glass surface. Well, not only can I fit those pertinent items, but I even have room for an observer:




So, what about you? What (or who) sits on your writing desk?

LOL Love the pictures of your desk, especially of your "helper" or is that "supervisor". *g*

My desk is pretty neat because it has to be. I have a tiny desk in the corner of the living room. I have my CD file, my note cards, papers, paper clips, jump drives, pens, stapler, and stacks of papers.

I've made it a habit to start cleaning off my desk after I finish each project. That way I can find stuff when I need to...mostly.

Thanks, NJ! Tex's job description varies. One day he's my "muse", the next he thinks he's my "overlord". *g* Funny, that's pretty much the way hubby's job description fluctuates, too!

Cleaning off the desk after every project is an excellent idea. I'll have to look into doing that. I bet my desk (and my guests) would thank me. :-)

LOL I love the supervisor. I have one of my own. *looks at Diva Kitty*

I have too many cords that I keep asking the hubby to help with. One day I'm going to get fretted and tack them up myself. I have a few card boxes and a tray for an inbox.
