#IWSG December: What’s in your writing space?

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time to share our hopes, dreams and fears with the Insecure Writers Support Group, the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and this month’s hosts are; J.H. Moncrieff, Tonja Drecker , Patsy Collins, and Chrys Fey!

Do stop by and say hello to them!

There’s a lot of chat on twitter right now about where your writing space is. But this month, the IWSG are asking: What 5 objects would you find in your writing space?

I used to have a beautiful antique writing desk, with little drawers and nooks. It tended to get plastered in post-it notes.

However, when my husband started working from home, I gave up the study (spare room / cupboard), so he could use it, and relocated to the kitchen table. That’s ok, I can multi-task (ha ha) more, and the kettle is closer, but other things do tend to creep into the space too.

So, right now you’d find:

  • A half-made jigsaw puzzle.
  • Two Ninjago lego bike-things.
  • An empty mug of tea (must correct that!)
  • Some shopping that hasn’t been put away.
  • The obligatory piles of paper with various to-do lists and notes-to-self.

What’s on yours?

  1. Being near the kettle is an advantage!


  2. Ninja bike things – I approve!
    At least you were able to adapt to the changes.

    Sorry you lost your antique desk. Very generous of you to give it up. I have a hutch with a Keurig and an electric kettle in my writing room. I need to give some thought to putting in a wine rack, as well.

    I like the picture. It looks like a writers place. Nice to see where you come up with all those cute stories.

    Hey! My tea cup is empty too! I should go fix that for myself. 🙂


  7. Tonja Drecker says:

    Lol! Yes, being that close to the kitchen does make getting to the tea easier.


  8. Cheryl says:

    Tea proximity always a plus! (Sorry for the loss of the writing cupboard!)


  9. ChrysFey says:

    When I use my laptop at my kitchen table, I have two cats trying to sleep up there at the same time. lol

    I prefer to be in the “middle of the action” too. When I tried to write shut up in my office, I found it lonely. Dreaded going in there.
