  AT MY DESK with Diane Demetre They say humans spend one third of their lives sleeping or attempting to do so. I spend one third of my life at my desk writing or attempting to do so. As such, my office is one of the most important places in my home for me. It’s my personal space for [...]

AT MY DESK: Lawrence Gleadhill   “There is something about a coffee and a muffin. The sugars hit me at just the right spot, it’s magical” I lost count how many coffees and muffins I’ve consumed for ‘research purposes,’ but it would be quite a few. But wherever I am [...]

  My Desk: MarionLennox   My desk has just moved.  After what seems a lifetime of dreaming, I’ve finally achieved a desk overlooking the sea.  While many believe the best view a writer can have is a brick wall, I’m over the lock-me-away-and-make-me-write phase of my career.  I love [...]

At My Desk: JT Clay   Having written a few books and published one, I have realised my writing weaknesses include story and description. They’re major drawbacks for a novelist, but at least I spell good. So I’ve worked hard on story and structure over the years. I use various tools [...]

  At My Desk: Suzy Shearer Ah yes -my desk/workspace … for me it’s all about creation, inspiration, visual stimulation. Being an author and an artist, my studio does double duty as somewhere to create both written works and painted ones. Both always need inspiration. My writing ones are in [...]

AT MY DESK: Jane Routley   I once read that Danielle Steele wrote her books in the laundry on the top of her washing machine. It’s tempting to think that if I did the same it might lead me to bestseller paradise, but I’m glad I have my own desk and nowadays my own study. Though I love to [...]

  AT MY DESK: Tania Cooper   Welcome to my creative mess. Oh, I mean desk. When writing I like to be surrounded by endless inspiration, be it pictures, quotes or music. I do not sit down at my desk without my ipod and mini speaker. Music is a huge part of my life and my writing process. I [...]

    AT MY DESK: Faye Hall   To say I was excited about being invited to AusRomToday is a slight understatement, but the invitation to do an At My Desk post did kind of fill me with extreme nervousness. My desk is constantly getting cluttered with children’s drawings and little [...]

    AT MY DESK: Rachel Amphlett   I have to admit, I laughed when AusRom Today asked me to take part in this feature. You see, I must have one of the more unusual writing spaces an author could have. Here’s a picture of it:   Yes, a train.  I’ve found my most productive [...]
