AT MY DESK: Jennifer Lynne

At My Desk
Jennifer Lynne

Hello everyone! At first I was going to try and clean up my desk and make it look more…you know…writerly or something. But then, it wouldn’t be my desk anymore. So, as you can see from the photo, I’ve left it pretty much as it is in my everyday life. This is where I’ve written much of my Gods of Love series of erotic romance books, though I confess I do spend a lot of time during winter on the couch in front of our wood burner, laptop perched on my knees and cats by my side.

Back to my desk…the writing part (i.e. the skinny bit holding the laptop) is off to one side, and the general family detritus that collects over the course of the week (usually notices from the school, bills to pay, to-do things that may or may not actually get done) pile up on the larger side of the desk – until finally I get hit by the “clean-up bug” and clear it all off. When that happens, it tends to stay neat for about…hmm…maybe a day?

My desk is tucked into a little nook in the corner of our bedroom. Recently we put up a plaster wall to separate the sleeping area from the writing space and that helps make it feel more like a real home office, despite the tiny proportions.

If you look closely you can see a small double photo in a gold frame – that’s a picture of my dad, who passed away when I was a child. I like keeping his memory nearby. The vase of wooden flowers and the glass bauble on the window sill are gifts from my girls – bought with saved pocket money before they were old enough to work. These inexpensive yet meaningful trinkets are what has turned an ordinary desk space into something special.

Write Scrabble letters

The girls also gave me some Scrabble-like letters from my favourite stationery store – Typo. Another reminder that my writing dream, and the support of my family, are closely intertwined.

The only things missing that would usually be present at my desk are my mug of coffee (I took the photo while waiting for the kettle to boil!) and at least two of our three cats. Bobby eats paper – any kind of paper, so I have to watch him closely at the desk to make sure he’s not devouring anything important. Meika usually sits on my mouse pad staring at the computer screen and trying to catch the cursor when it moves. Here they are, looking more innocent than they should!
