My Writing Space

Every morning, 7 days a week, I do a writing practice.  Just 10-15 minutes of writing on anything I want to write about.  I have been doing  prompts from The Writer’s Idea Book by Jack Heffron and the past 3 prompts were on my writing space.  So after writing about it and realizing my desk was getting way too cluttered to get any work done, I decided to fix it up.

Yesterday, I spent the day cleaning and organizing my work area.  Afterward, I hung up some photographs I took last year of flowers to make the space look more homey.  I write in the dining room and have a screen that blocks me off from the rest of the house.  It was rather dull before, but the pictures brighten it up.  I was excited to work today in my nice, uncluttered space.

And it seems cleaning actually did something for me.  I managed to write a short story today.  It still needs to be edited and also typed on the computer, but at least it’s written and I am feeling good!

By the way, The Writer’s Idea Book is a great little book to have on hand.  Whenever you feel blocked or just want something new to write about, there are more than 400 different prompts to get you started.
