A writer’s desk


The work week has ended, and the Sabbath queen is on her way. Maybe tomorrow I will clear away some of the clutter. Not now, though; not now.

Good choice of blog-reading, if i see aright.

When in doubt, read the dean of book bloggers. That is my motto.

If you want to see more writers' desks, The Guardian has you covered; if you want still more, see Blog Lily's post; if you want mine, see here.

Oh, and nice keyboard.

Jake is being modest. The keyboard is a Unicomp SpaceSaver, which gives the tactile feedback of the old IBM and Apple II-e keyboards. It was his review that led me to it. I have trusted Jake’s opinion ever since.

Jake’s work space is far too neat, by the way. Now I am suspicious of him.

If it makes you feel any better, the messiness of my desk ranges from spartan to pandemonium, depending on whether it's covered with RFPs, client background, and what not (from grant writing) or books/outlines (for writing of a more fun sort), or if it's been cleared of said detritus.

Either way, I'm sure there are many, many other reasons not to trust my opinion, which can probably be easily found at the blog linked to above.
