Back to Romance Writers Weekly this week πŸ™‚

Welcome to those of you joining from the very talented Fiona Riplee!

This week the task was- Give us the inside scoop on your writing space.

My writing space has changed a lot since last year, when I was trying my best to manage all my writing and notes whilst typing on a small table in front of the sofa!

Harli didn't appreciate me taking over her space!

Over my break, I managed to create a small little office space in my room and, even though it’s a bit of a mess sometimes with all my notes, it’s great to have a dedicated writing area.

My writing space now, with bonus sunshine!

It’s handy having a smaller space as everything I need is right in reach! And my new whiteboard is really useful for listing my tasks for the month, week, and day (I work much better when I have a list of goals to tick off).

Though it might not be the prettiest or most organised space, it is perfect for me πŸ˜€

Do you have certain way of organising your writing space?

Why not go see what LaNora Mangano’s space looks like? You might get some ideas for your own!

  1. Love the whiteboard. What a great idea! I’m so disorganized I probably need one of these just to keep everything in one place, staring me in the face everyday to remind me what needs to be done.

    • That’s exactly why I need it! πŸ˜€ If I don’t list down what I need and have it in sight all the time, it completely skips my mind.

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  2. I like the idea of having a checklist as well. I’d probably do a better job of staying on task if I made mine the size of your white board. Love that and the window! ( And Harli is beautiful.)

    • My checklist is the thing I live by πŸ˜€ Can’t do without it now!

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚ And Harli know how beautiful she is, and uses that regularly to get a few too many treats!

    • I used to have notes everywhere of tasks that needed to be completed, and the whiteboard really is so much easier to manage now πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  3. Every serious writer should have their own writing space! Mine is in a corner of my kitchen, which is a little too handy for the snack cupboard and coffee machine lol! Which are also essential requirements for the productive writer! Your space is just perfect, and just look at the results coming out of it!

    • My space is in my bedroom, which I hoped would help keep my cravings and tea-obsession at bay, but that didn’t work much πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much for commenting and the compliment πŸ™‚

  4. I love that sunshine, too! A window is a must for me. I think the whiteboard idea. I don’t have one but I do make a goal list to tackle. Helps keep me focused!

    • It is nice having a window right next to me, even in the winter gloom it’s nice to be able to see out to nature and be a bit inspired!

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

    • Yeah, Harli certainly wasn’t the most helpful when I had to do my writing downstairs πŸ˜€ It is good to have somewhere separate to concentrate now though.

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  5. I have to confess, I tried to zoom in on that picture, to try and get a sneak peek as to what you’re working on next. Alas, it didn’t come in clear enough to see.

    • You probably don’t want to see it up close, there are so many things on that list to check off and I have barely done any yet! πŸ˜€

      March is gonna be a busy, busy month! (Well, hopefully, if I can get myself going!)

    • All I had was the sofa and laptop last year, but at least it’s somewhere to write, right? πŸ˜€ And it obviously works for you, because the poetry you write is stunning!

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  6. I love your little writing space! ^-^ Mine is similar, being a largish desk in the living room. Looking at your setup, I really feel like I need a little cork board to tack my lists up on.

    • The task list seems like a popular idea with a lot of people πŸ˜€ Mine is out of necessity, because if I don’t have the tasks staring me in the face I forget far too easily!

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  7. Your writing space looks so cute and cozy! (It’s also a lot more organized than mine) XD I also like your whiteboard checklist- it’s a good idea that I might have to steal!

    • The whiteboard idea really was a popular one! I would highly recommend trying it out, it certainly helps to keep me more organised πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much for commenting πŸ™‚

  8. Great space! I totally need a whiteboard. I have a magnetized bulletin board with butterfly magnets that I sometimes use to storyboard. But a whiteboard I can erase would be great to have.
