I reorganized my workspace last night. I have a beautiful roll-top desk that my mom handed down to me when we moved into our house, but it was just pushed into a corner upstairs collecting dust. So I decided I was going to downsize from the big ugly table that had been posing as my desk and get some use out of a beautiful piece of furniture. One great thing about doing most all my work from a laptop is that I don’t have many paper files and such, so a small desk works for me. I spent last evening throwing out everything I don’t need and organizing everything I do. It’s a good feeling to be so tidy today!
If I have to, I can work anywhere with almost any type of distraction. Past jobs in a noisy, fun Fine Arts department at a college and a super busy public relations office at a hospital taught me to get work done no matter what the environment. And a personality profile we once did at Barbour showed that I could basically work in a cave if I had to. Pretty things and extra comforts are nice but not necessary for me. However, I must admit that with my re-designed, re-organized workspace, I feel like I can take over the fiction publishing world! Just kidding…but I do feel great in my nice, neat workspace. Let’s see how long I can keep it this way!
Here are a couple pics for a window into my work world. The first person to post a comment and correctly name everyone in the photo you can see on top of my desk will get a free book sent to them. Here’s a hint – it was our Barbour Biggest Loser team. We’re looking at cookbooks and two of us are making sad faces about all the good things we shouldn’t eat. :)
