As writers, we all have that special spot we write in. Of course, we write in many different spots but there’s always that one got- spot for writing. Here’s my writing space.
Cliche spot, yes? I know. But I get the majority of my writing done in my office sitting at my desk. I just got a new laptop and a new desk chair so things are more comfortable and easier to work with.
My desk is small but a good size for me. It fits my laptop, my iPad standing on the left, and other things on the right. Other things meaning my blog planner, my portfolio, notebooks, things like that.
I have two shelves beside my desk in the wall and that holds more notebooks and binders as well as a turntable for my pens, pencils, highlighters, bookmarks, scissors, and more. I’ve got everything I need right where I need it. And I don’t have to get up to get anything.
There’s a small shelf at the top where I have some nick-knacks and a shelf at the bottom of the desk where I put my drinks and snacks. Like I said, I don’t have to get up to get anything. Everything I need it close by and it’s great.
My office is also a “game room” for Kris and I. Sometimes I sit on the couch with the TV on. I’ll usually put on a movie, YouTube, or Twitch for background noise. I love sitting on the couch because I can lean back, put my feet up, and cuddle with the dog and/or cat at the same time.
Outside of the house, I go to Barnes & Noble. Kris and I try to go every week. We sit at the cafe with either our laptops or our notebooks and get a couple hours of writing in. Though, some days are better than others. Sometimes we’re super focused and other times we get distracted and chit-chat the whole thing. Which isn’t a bad thing, though.
Overall, there’s a ton of places I can write now. Since I have a new laptop, I’m able to move it and bring it different places. The screen is secure and the battery lasts just about all day without being plugged in, so it’s great. The possibilities are now endless.
