Per a meme from larbalestier, a photo of my workspace.

IMG_2073

In my case this is a bit misleading, because I write on a laptop (the MacBook in the right hand side of the photo), and I write where ever I am — couch, bed, car, airplane, coffee house, you name it.

What's your workspace look like?

I could tell it was a Viewsonic from the thumbnail. I had to go to the ZOMG-sized version of the image to read the model number. After that, it was ten seconds with My Buddy the GoogleTube to find the specs.

Being a hardware geek is seldom rewarding in its own right, but when it is... it has that new-car smell.

I wish I could participate. However, photography at my work is fairly restricted. Even if I was sneaky and used the phone on my camera, if it was discovered I posted the picture, it would be a Bad Thing™

I do all my writing at a desk in the accounting office of Wayne Distributors Incorporated in beautiful Paducah, Kentucky.

It looks like a microphone to me ... maybe no podcasting?

Nice space. You are obviously much more mentally organized than I am...

I do a lot of my work in a stranger's car. I'm a slug; in other cities, I'm known as a casual carpooler. It takes me about an hour and a half to get to work, and about as much to get home. That's a lot of downtime that I utilize by breaking out my laptop and writing.

Once I got over the social stigma of being busy in someone else's personal space, I found that it works very well for me.

I ditto the workspace envy. Ever since I moved in February, I've been meaning to buy a desk (or, OK, more literally, two filing cabinets and a slab of wood). But there's always some financial crunch in the works, so I haven't yet. Therefore, my workspace is typically my bed, with a bunch of pillows propped up behind me.

When I get too discouraged about that, I remember that Stephen King wrote Carrie on a little typewriter he precariously balanced upon his knees due to similar woes.

I also remember the old adage: A clean desk is the sign of an empty mind.

Here's a nice clean picture of it. Right now it's a mess of boxes, CD's and all sorts of crap. I am doing everything in my power including monkey voodoo sacrifices to get the gorgeous office space in my building near my landlady's apartment:



P.S. Find the cat.

We have a winner!

Yes, he was hiding that day because he'd put an inch long fairly deep gash in my paw. Ouch. All because I was trying to get a sticker off his back.

T'weren't me. Was the kid what put the sticker on. And of course I was the one what had to git it off.
