Jennifer Fulwiler of Conversion Diary starts a meme.
I want to see where you write! On Wednesday, I’m going to put up a linky list where fellow bloggers and writers can link to posts where they give us a tour of the spaces where they write, so start snapping pictures now. (And I’m defining “writer” very loosely here: if you create Facebook status updates, you’re a writer in my book.)
I realize that not everyone in the world thinks that this is a fascinating topic — but I am fascinated by it enough to make up for them. And I want details! How do you organize your space? What kind of pens do you have in your cupholders? What else do you use this area of your home for? What does your chair look like?
Well for one thing my workspace is totally scorpion free. (Inside joke for fans of Jennifer Fulwiler). I am glad she is defining “writer” very loosely, since I very loosely would describe myself as a writer.
Well the answer about pens is easy, I hardly use one. My illegible handwriting skills would have got me in to med school. My organization is almost all virtual via the computer.
The majority of the writing and coding I do is in my living room.
Though I take my iPad throughout the house for reading and research of stories I react to or inspire me towards a a new parody.
Whoa! Is that your workspace? I am SO impressed that it’s so clutter-free!
Going to work on my post now… (And thanks for joining in!)
Hey “I’M” not really here so don’t tell Victor cause he’s promised all his spiritual and reality cells of the past and future that he would no longer comment for this so called “LENT” of his?
Being an hate theist spiritual soul cell of Victor, “I’M” finding “IT” hard to believe that so many of my spiritual lost soul, spiritual cells of the past friends are jumping on to this so called Catholic band wagon NOW? Go Figure!
I better close NOW and Like Victor would say: Please keep praying for this poor Annoying Super Sinner.
OK! God Bless
Piece or is that
Go Figure! 🙂
Glad to see a faithful Catholic (male) blogger who is also a convert! Between Betty Beguiles and Jennifer’s site, I think we are anomalies.
Here’s to spartan writing areas!
I’ve always been awed and amazed and in all ways blown away by people who can work on a computer with multiple monitors. Seriously, I’m not smart enough to keep track of all that information. A very neat space. Are you real or just someone who plays a blogger on television?
I have been blogging for a near 10 years. I have a very messy desk. And I am very laid back bout it. But I know where things are. I am nearsighted and work without my glasses cause I can see my computer still on the in between sight.
I don’t believe a single one of you and your neat neat ultra neat desks. I used to get into all that St Blogs stuff but I went more secular yet Catholic for greater exposure.
My common sense says that neatness is a sign of issues.
But know this: I cleaned my desk and was up all night to do this. I really must be a serious nerd for Christ now. LOL
Tell me you cleaned that off before you took the pictures to post! Or wait, is this the difference between men’s writing space and women’s writing space?
I’m feeling a little screen envy, truth be told. 🙂 Loved the glimpse into your life, Jeff!
My writing space is technically here. But since my weblog is primarily the aggregation of a lot of status updates, that picture is a bit optimistic. I could as well show pictures of my phone, my MacBook, my “office office”, our iMacs, my wife’s netbook — wherever I can post a sentence or two intended to be buffered for the end of the day. The final stitching and uploading is often done on my bed via my MacBook.
