See that perfectly organized, muse-welcoming office in the header pic? It’s just dripping with literary charm. And nope, it does not belong to any of us Chicks. But we just love our creative spaces. Really. Can you match the Chick with her writing coop? (It’s easy, actually, since our photos are right next to them…)
Well, here’s mine: the breakfast bar in our kitchen. I actually have a real office in the guest bedroom, but recently this arrangement has been working better for me. It is right next to the coffee pot and milk frother, and just steps from the fridge. What else does it have going for it? Well, nothing, really, except that other than the snacks and caffeine, it offers very few distractions. See that mouse pad to the right? I’ve had it since the 90s. And it’s very true. Rating: 2/10 for lack of effort, plus 1 for Jessica Fletcher screenshot.
No pictures of my desk. It was already a mess, but now that hubs is also working from home… Anyway, here’s the view out my office window. And yes, that’s snow. In May. But, isn’t the mountain in the background pretty?
This is my last week in Hawai’i before i return to Santa Cruz for six months, and one of the things I’ll miss most is my old wooden desk and view out the window from my office here in Hilo. Oh, and my Hello Kitty good luck charm, too, of course!
The best part about my home office is my assortment of desktop novelties. These beloved dust magnets were gifted to me by my children (note the scary monster and hand-painted flowerpot) and coworkers, as well as by friends who understand my penchant for murder (on the page, that is). Of course, I’ve cropped out the piles of papers, unopened mail, half-eaten bowl of oatmeal, and lipstick-stained coffee cup. I’m a fan of fiction, after all!
Anyone want to share a pic of their home office? No staging needed (because that’s no fair!). Feel free to offer us Chicks any DIY or decor suggestions.
