How to Create a Great Work Area for Inspiration
Hi, thanks for having me on your blog today.
One of the hardest aspects for me when it comes to writing is literally sitting down and forcing myself to focus on the task at hand, whether it be writing, editing or reviewing. The best way I found for myself to stay focused is by creating work environments specific to those tasks. I might not solely use each workspace for each specific task, but if I'm struggling with the goal, it's easier for me move to the relevant workspace and focus.
Like many other 'artistes', one of my favourite workspaces is my local cafe. I try to spend a couple of hours each morning, sipping a nice cup of tea, with my laptop, working on my first draft. The coffee shop is a great way to begin my day as it gives the day a definitive start. It's also great because I don't have Internet access. So I don't have the temptation to waste time wading through the goings-on on the Internet.
My desk is the next workspace I tend to use each day. I spend a lot of time here. Whilst the desk is full of books, notepads, notes and so on, it is really the main place I do my writing and research and day to day writing related activity. I have had the desk for many years and I have it set up exactly as I need to be productive and focused.
I also have a small desk in a small study that looks into our backyard. This is where I go to do a lot of my editing, I just grab my trusty laptop and sit up there with the fresh air. This was one room that I set up with as few distractions as possible and the relaxed feeling of the room makes it easier for me to perform my least favourite task.
My final workspace is my couch where I do a lot of reviewing of my work and works for my friends. I literally grab my kindle and a note pad, put on one of my favourite movies as background and spend hours reading and making notes.
