Challenge Response -- Where I Write

Paperback Writer mentioned that Lee Goldberg issued a challenge for everyone to post a picture of where they write.

So far, I've seen Jenny Crusie's office and, thanks to Jenny, Susan Elizabeth Phillips office, too.

I work in the mushroom pit aka the Basement.

Here's my desk (please note that a laptop was on the Christmas list, but Santa decided I wasn't quite good enough last year):

My daughter gave me the Ty Beanie Baby Rat that sits upon my monitor when she found out I had a rat in Camilla's Critters. He's my constant inspiration.

Next is a closeup of my "I Love You" wall -- the dried roses from the only time my husband ever celebrated Valentines Day with me (he's not big on celebrating any holiday) and several cards and hand drawn pictures from my DD:

Behind me is this bookcase full of writing books, autographed romance novels and some of my scrapbooking supplies.

Beside me is the bookcase where I keep DD's craft supplies, my Avon samples, brochures and bags, stationery and some misc. curriculum I've purchased for DD but she's not quiet ready for yet. If you look carefully, you can see the open door that leads to the laundry room AND to the cat's litter box. Ahhhhh.... Ambiance. Just right for romance -- ooh la la.

It's small and untidy, but it's home.

Anyone else game??

How cool! I love seeing where you work. I'll play and post a pic or two of my desk tomorrow.

I'm having more fun looking at other people's writing spaces! I'm coming to the conclusion that I'm too cramped. I need to spread out. :)

I'm an as-yet-unpublished-at-novel-length romance writer, determined to make it into print sometime before I die.

Hi, followed you from Lee Goldberg's blog. Great Office. I mean, it has furniture and files and everything. Way ahead of mine.

Oh, reference the above from your profile. I don't write romance, but as to the rest, I hear you, sister. I hear you.
