Today I have more of a writerly desk, so let's roll. From the far left handside is my writing magazine, I treat myself to it, and it has some interesting articles at times. It's just something I flick though the way other people buy GQ, Vougue or Marie Claire. It's my monthly interest magazine, and no I don't do the writing exercises but then who buys all the clothes, make-up and perfume advertised in the high-end women's magazines.
Next is a bottle of vitamins, this was a gift from Sis. Yes, as you probably realise, Sis is very generous with her gifts as they are normally featured on my desk. If fact the Apple Notebook is also one. A small fact is that I bought my first phone only two years ago because for the last ten years, Sis gave me all her hand-me-downs. She's very on top of technology - ahead of the curve, wave or early adaptor. Anyway she got me them because she's into healthy eating and body care, and probably got them on discount.
Next is a regular, the reading lamp, a random ruler and then two writing doggy-eared books. The scene book by Sandra Scofield which I find very useful, and Spellbinding Sentence by Barbara Baig which is good but can be a hard read. It's a gloried grammar book which I've tried to use for years but it's better off as a reference book. I do the writing exercises when I'm about to polish a draft.
Next is my handmade card featured last week, a pen, mechanical pencil, and mascara. The pile with the box and mastery book underneath still waiting to be read. The index card contains a note about a scene or something. Not sure. You can see the sauces are still in the box.
A bottle of water because of the hot weather, then one of notebooks, and folder's underneath. Finally is my faithful laptop - a Christmas gift from Sis. I'm due to for a backup soon.
And that is my desk today.
