Everybody's been unwinding from a busy and hectic holiday season, and I'm no different. I just got the rest of my Christmas decorations put away today and it's the middle of January! I am already falling behind. Trying to come up with a blog post for today . . . well my brain completely shut off. Couldn't think of a single thing I thought would interest people coming to the PP blog.
Then it hit me. Literally. My spiral bound calendar fell off the corner of my desk and landed on my foot, a clear indication something had to be done with the stacks and stacks of stuff sitting on my desk.
Let me explain. I work a full time job in addition to writing. But I'm one of the "lucky" ones who can work from home. I'm basically on the computer all day long. I work at the computer. I write at the same computer. It is pretty much my constant companion. So I thought I'd share with you my writing space.
Ta da!!! Here's a picture of where the magic happens. The magic of writing that is. Most of my writing takes place seated at this desk. I have a dedicated office space, a separate bedroom which I have converted into a combination work/writing den of sorts. A large desk dominates most of the space as you can see but I love it. I love being able to spread out and have space for my papers, my ergonomic keyboard, and anything else I need, all within easy reach. (Sorry the pictures are a little dark, I couldn't get the flash to work right.)
My printer is on another table next to the desk, giving me as much space as possible to spread out. I like comfort when I writing. Sit me down with a glass of iced tea with lemon, my candle, and turn me loose. I always have a candle on the desk, too. I burn the same scent or fragrance throughout the story. Any time after that, whenever I smell that particular scent, it evokes memories of the story for me.
There you have, it my little corner of writing paradise. I know some people like to go to coffee shops or cafes or even bookstores to write, taking their laptops with them. Even I do that on occasion, but as they say there's no place like home, and for me my little writing cave is home.
Would you like to find out about other Plotting Princesses writing spaces and maybe see some pics of their creative areas? Let us know and we might feature other PP girls in upcoming blog posts.

Whenever Kathy isn't at her desk typing away on her latest book, she can be found with her e-reader in hand, reading and wishing she had some chocolate chip cookies to go with the story. Hey, a girl can dream, can't she? Okay, carrots and celery will have to do. Her latest release, Second Chances is available in print at Amazon in e-book and print, B & N, and other e-book retailers.
