Welcome to the Thursday’s Children Blog Hop, where writers come together to share whatever inspires them throughout their writing journey. Make sure to check out the other bloggers via the Link List at the bottom of this post. We’d love for you to join us!
This is my first post with the Thursday’s Children Blog Hop, and therein lies my inspiration.
I want to work on my current WIP every day and I want to post on my blog more regularly. But I, like many others, suffer from seasonal affective disorder, and that makes it really hard for me to get motivated during the gloomy winter months in upstate New York. It doesn’t help that I have a nasty cold and haven’t had a voice for 3 days.
So, I decided that by joining Thursday’s Children, that might give me the kick in the pants to post on a weekly basis. Then I decided that I needed a new workspace. That might help me want to sit down and write every day. I miss being in that place, where you can't pull me away from the computer. During the warmer months I usually take my laptop outside and sit at the table on the patio. But, I didn’t have a special place to work inside. I’ve tried different rooms and different desks, but nothing felt “just right.” I’m starting to sound like Goldilocks. lol. Well, today I found it! And it’s totally genius, if I do say so myself.
I have this cool antique sewing machine that a friend gave me about a year ago. I just love it.
Today I found an oval glass top (with no bottom) at our local thrift store.
And voila, my new desk! Genius, right?
I liked the idea of being able to see the antique sewing machine through the glass.
The foot pedal is also quite comfortable. It's even fun to peddle while I type!
