I am blessed with two fabulous grown children but only one cat (down from three, plus a dog, a snake and two hamsters). It’s a quiet household now, but since my study window looks on a park and river there is plenty of wildlife to distract me from my writing. Here’s a picture of my view:
This is my study:
As you can see, my work place is exceedingly neat. This is because I stuffed all my junk into the drawers before taking the shot. I use a laptop and although I have wi fi, I work only in the study. It has the best view (see above), plus it’s close to the bathroom. Oh, and that way I can separate work from the rest of the house. Which is kind of silly, since I write constantly throughout the day, stopping now and then to eat or walk or find something, anything, else to do. I love my desk—got it free from a local actors group who’d used it as a prop. It has two leaves that pull out on either side so I can be surrounded on three sides by piles of stuff.
I now have six books published and one on the way. Like many other authors, my first book was written in a series of spiral notebooks. No, wait, I take that back. I wrote my very first novel on my first computer, a Kaypro (anyone remember those?). I hadn’t mastered copying onto a floppy disk yet, so I printed out one copy on those perforated paper sheets in one long, endless stream. And my husband in a cleaning frenzy…threw…it…out. Serves me right for sticking it in a drawer and forgetting about it. Didn’t do that again.
I’d love to hear from you:
