On Tuesday we celebrate the one year anniversary of living in our house. To celebrate, I thought I'd post pictures of my office space.
John Hornor Jacobs started this "trend" of writers showing their office a couple of months ago. It took me that long to clean up and rearrange my office, but over the weekend I finally got it in some kind of working order.
Here is the wide shot:
The room is pretty big, but since it's got to function as both my office, my gym, and our guest room, space must be used wisely.
Well, maybe not so wisely, because my desk is huge, and I love it. I got it from a Craigslist ad about four months ago.
I know three monitors seems excessive but really, they are very useful.
The picture below is my treadmill desk. It's really not very high tech–Mick just built me a little wooden platform I can rest my laptop on. I try to go 10,000 steps a day, and most days, that means I have to spend a little quality time on the treadmill.
Another Craigslist find. This dresser is actually one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house.
So I mentioned my office is also the guest room. This is actually a trundle bed that pulls out to make a king-size bed. Buying this was one of the best decisions we ever made because it saves so much space but allows our guests to be comfy.
So this is where I work most days. If I'm writing a first draft I use a yellow legal pad and write all over the house. Sometimes I sit at the dining room table too because for some reason I find it hard to sit in the same spot all the time.
Wanna see more writers' offices?
