New Buy: My Writing Desk

Well, after public demands to show pictures of my writing desk, I thought I must show you my new writing space, so here it is πŸ˜€

I first wanted to say how happy I am that you really want to see silly things like that… I love it ❀

Hubby built this desk on Friday and after I reorganized the room today and set everything in the right place, I took a few pics to post them here for you ❀

In the picture you can see that I have a huge monitor and my laptop. I use them both mostly in my editing, although I love using them for writing as well but not all the time.

I have a simple but perfect desk lamp, I am so happy that I bought it, it’s perfect.

I have 3 notebooks on my desk which I use a lot:

  • My writing notebook: I use it to take notes, or write a sudden plot that came to mind, anything and everything about my story can go in this notebook.
  • My dream journal: I don’t need to explain here much, right?
  • My doodle notebook: I call it a doodle notebook, but it’s for everything I want to draw, sketch and doodle to free my mind when I need it.

I also have my weekly & monthly planner.

I have a small jar, that once contained soaps, that I use for my pens and highlighters πŸ™‚ My favorite pens are there as well as few regular ones, mostly blue and red. They were once scattered inside my purse and in my closet, lol.

I can’t live without having post-its by my side, I use them a lot!

I have my coffee on my desk, usually I have my coffee in my owl mug (that I love so much) but today I used this one, to keep my coffee hot.

Finally, I love the little footstool I placed under the table to put my feet up when I’m thinking or just writing with pen and paper (I used it before when I wrote in the kitchen).

This desk is simple, but perfect for me and what makes it even more awesome is that it’s my space. It’s not in the living room or in the kitchen, and as I set everything in its place I already feel that this little desk is my own writing place.

All I need to make this space even more perfect for my needs is a good chair. I have some thoughts about what kind of chair I want (something like an executive chair). I also hope to fins a big cork board to hang above my desk.

I can’t stress enough the importance of having your own space for your craft. This little space is mine and it is already very inspiring.

Thank you so much for reading ❀

  1. Congrats on the new desk! I completely agree with you, that having your own little ‘place’ can help with your writing. I hope to someday have my own little writing spot as well!

  6. Congrats on your new desk and office. Nicely done. Your monitor is awesome. That’s on my “need” list. I especially love that high electric outlet. Beats climbing under the desk or having all kinds of cords under the desk. Good luck with the chair search. My recommendation: Take a book to the store with you and sit in the chair you find comfortable. If you can read there for half and hour or so, that is the chair for you. Enjoy.

    1. How sweet of you, thank you so much. Yeah I always wanted a second monitor… if I have enough money I would do like Terry Pratchett and have 6 monitors. Hubby won this monitor, so that’s cool. Thank you so much for the advice I will do that, I never thought of doing that, lol, thanks.

  7. I had plans for my own writing spot. The kids grew up, they didn’t spend much time here so I was going to buy a futon or pull down to a bed chair and hide in their former room, use it for storage as well since we have none. Things happen, plans change and I’m still waiting for that writing space. Until that happens I’m stuck in the living room, on the couch, with my laptop on my lap and my feet up on a stool with my boyfriend who is far too loquacious for my tastes some nights. *sigh*. It will happen. Eventually, but it will happen.

    1. I know what you mean, I may not have kids, but I did wait for over 15 years for my own space. A place dedicated for my writing and nothing else. I am sure that you will find your own place, little or big, you will find it β™‘

      1. I will, I know where it will be even, it’s just a matter of a friend getting some bills paid off and moving back into her own place. Two years since she moved in, and counting!
