I’ve enjoyed coming up with my stories whether at our main computer desk where it all began, on the couch with my laptop, or sitting at the kitchen table, which has been my most recent work space. But my paperwork and notes have always been in the way, messy and unorganized, bringing to any room marked chaos. And when family needed them out of the way, they simply scooped up said papers and moved them, messing up any order I had to them and to my writing. I really haven’t done anything about this until now (with a LOT of help from my dear husband).
And, for the last two years, I’ve had a scrapbooking room and desk, since my oldest daughter got married, and even that space has been compromised and became the family storage/junk room, as you will clearly see in the photos below. Not only was my table removed from the room for large holiday dinners, my stuff would be moved again. But for the last two weeks, my husband and I (and even my kids) have been emptying all contents of this scrapbooking/junk room so that it could be painted and prepped for a more workable purpose, that of my new office /scrapbooking room. Yesterday, I finally got the scrapbooking desk cleared and prepared for just my writing. I now have a permanent, dedicated space for my writing. And here it is! I’m so ready! The scrapbooking portion of the room will be completely separate. This room is nothing to write about yet (but I am writing about it anyway…), and I will slowly add color and user-friendly decor as needed, but I’ll be eager to show you when the whole room is completely finished! My scrapbooking portion of the room is not yet functional with all its disorder, but I will get that under control as well, hopefully, by the end of the month. It might take more time than that, cost wise, but I’ll see how far I can get.
I only have so much time to dedicate to this project as I’ve reset some writing goals yesterday. I’m truly hopeful to put out a book this year of 2019. Book Four--CREIGHTON'S DAUGHTER is in progress. I’m thrilled at the prospect, I cannot lie! Having order is essential to accomplishing goals, and I feel like this is happening for me..finally. I’m vibrating with enthusiasm right now. It feels great to be able to set goals and see them come to fruition. So…without further ado…here are some pictures. Nothing big, but big to me.
Happy Goal setting to you!
P.S. I’m off-schedule with my audiobooks as many of you have noticed (due to illnesses), but I promise to get all audiobooks out as soon as humanly possible. And if you would like to listen to my first audiobook, narrated by darling Kim Pruitt, here’s the link!
