Growing up, I dreamed of having a desk.
I wanted a space that was mine, and that I could write or draw on. Living in apartments for most of my life, that luxury was never afforded to me. When I got to college, I finally had a desk. I was so happy! Being happy in nursing school as a writer? Not so much.
But now, I have one again. I was accustomed to writing on the backs of books, kitchen tables and even the floor. Trapper Keepers made the BEST desks in a pinch!
However, there is something special about the desk I have now.
It’s all mine.
There a printer, with paper. Pens. Scrap paper. Post-its! Magazines! And I smile at all that chaos.
It reminds me that I am a working writer. It is the evidence of the last four years of trying to make this hobby a career. Further evidence that I’m making progress at it!
My desk is messy because I’m a writer.I write. And I got the space to do it.
Own your space. Own your talent. Make magic.
