It's the first of a new month and that's when I start to make myself all kinds of promises. But before I can fulfill the actions that just spilled out into my journal I need to do a bit of housekeeping first. 
I don't know about you but my desk looks like a war zone. It's got glasses of days old water, a cold cup of tea,  pens, pencils and highlighters of all colours, paper some clipped together, dictionaries, books on writing, books for analysis, a calculators, writing magazines, part edited novels, stapler and a box of tissues. 
Phew, I'm sure I've missed loads - oh yes a large bankers lamp which is great in the winter but takes up a lot of room right now... 
So can I find anything? No, I can't.
Do I have a filing cabinet? Yes I do, last opened... some months ago.
Could I arrange thing so I don't spend the whole day cursing that I'm sure I left it right.... there. Perhaps. 
First job on the Action List - Get Organised.
Second job - Start as You Mean to Go On (which I've failed on already as I made a list for today and done just about everything else but what was on the list!)

So tell me, what is your writing desk like?

Don't Think Just Write

My 'desk' is tiny as it has to fit into a little corner. I only have about 12 square inches of workspace which I manage to fill with paper, notebooks, pens and the like. Today there is also a moth that is refusing to leave but won't let me catch him :-)

I share a desk with my husband - a partners' desk, where you can sit on either side. His side is always a tip; mine is tidy. But that still doesn't help me to get things done. I spend far too much time on the Internet. I have decided that one day a week is 'no computer day' so I don't even switch it on. I'm hoping this will help.
