Show me your desk: Books, magazines, bottle of water, and same old clutter.



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.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
