My apologies to all of you concerning the tilt of these photos. Somehow I got the tree snapshots from yesterday turned around and they stayed that way to be posted on my blog. But all my most determined efforts to right these photos, taken of my writers room, failed me. Understanding for the technologies at my finger tips slipped beyond my grasp. I am among the ranks of the technically illiterate! So just turn your head or your monitor and you can feast your eyes on the large table desk, the lighting, and the bookshelves, which are supported by the file cabinets. The names of Jesus poster at my right hand side, and the adventurous George S. Gaadt posters flanking my left and right…. It is my writer’s room dream come true!
I was unable to locate curtains just yet. Curtain shopping is much like shoe shopping. I’m not a fan! They have to be just right in color, size, and style. Oh there are so many ugly curtains out there. Everyone with good taste must have gotten to the store before I did. This calls for a trip to Appleton or Green Bay….hopefully soon!
Does this inspire those of you who asked for photos of my writer’s room? It is important to find the colors you love to work around. The layout of the furniture is especially important. Don’t be afraid to change your mind or be open to arranging your space another way. This style of furniture was completely different then what I had envisioned. Cal traded me up, so to speak, and I’ll be ever grateful to him for his wisdom and generosity! This is a small room but the furniture fits and I don’t feel crowded. I needed file space and there are two large file drawers that will work hard for me.
I love using the extra monitor. Cal fixed me up with that also! Sometimes as I’m rewriting I use the extra monitor so that I can have two files open at once. Then I don’t have to flip back and forth and minimize and enlarge files. This is great for research or moving scenes around! I’m just using an old monitor from a computer that crashed…years ago.
I did steal my feathers and flower arrangement from the living room for this photo shoot ….I think I will be shopping for living room flowers because now that they are here I can’t bear to part with them!! I still have to being in my files and arrange them. Also I will have plastic drawers in the closet, which will contain office supplies and random stuff that I wish to hide away out of sight. (You don’t see them in these photos.) I will also be moving things from the top shelf of the closet and placing my binders filled with writing class information there instead. Well there you go. I am a challenged organizer but if you work hard at thinking about how the organized population of the world would do things and you take advantage of great designs available in office furniture you will be well on your way to some happy undisturbed writing times! Ask the Lord to guide you to discover your working style and give Him the glory and praise for His help and inspiration!! Blessings All!!
