Week 47 of the MFRW 52 Blog Hop. This week, ‘Where I write.’
This will be a short post.
I have an office specifically for writing, however, it’s stuffed with a dozen boxes of books interspersed throughout the room that I need to load on my bookshelves. Because there are so many boxes, I can’t get to the desk. One day, when I find the time, I plan to empty those boxes onto the shelves so I finally write in my office. The dining room table has become my new writing spot.
It’s not a neat area. On the table to the right of my laptop are two stacks of craft books, my iPad and mobile phone. To the left is a Happy Planner with a bunch of stickers packs on top, a stress ball, eye drops, a notepad, a pen/pencil cup, white-out tape, gum, and my earbuds. Taped to the top of the laptop is a postcard that says “Always Remember Why” (always remember why I write) that I got from author Abbi Glines. Behind the laptop are various Happy Planner supplies, magazines for character fashion ideas, a few print romance books, and a battery operated pencil sharpener.
That’s it. This is where my stories are crafted. Where do you write? Please be sure to check out the other author posts here.

My writing area isn’t neat either. It’s cluttered the same way with books and papers, but it works. Hope you are able to get the books cleared out one day so you can use your office.
I hope to empty the boxes before the year is out. That’s the plan, anyway. Thanks for stopping by.
Your dining room table sounds like it has everything you need. Eye drops are important in this line of work. 🙂 I love what the postcard says. That would come in handy while working on a stubborn first draft.
I’m lazy. The only way for me to write is to not have an excuse to get up except for lunch or bathroom breaks, but I do look longingly into my office as I walk by on my way to bed. I’ve promised myself to empty those boxes before this year is out. Thanks for stopping by.
I’m cheering for you to get those boxes empty! I have a home office, but at nights and on weekends, I can’t be in there; I burn out. Which is funny, isn’t it? I edit by edit and write by night and my burnout factor is entirely location-dependent!
Oops. I edit by day adn write by night… clearly, I need to edit myself before I hit post!
I’ve promised myself to empty those boxes before this year is out. Thanks for stopping by and sharing.

I’ve got a cluttered desk/room, too, but I know right where everything is. I like to think the clutter is inspirational, lol.
That’s what so wonderful about a cluttered desk. Everything you want or need is readily available and in sight. Thanks for stopping by and sharing.
