Margaret Mayo, Romance Author


The clearing of my desk went something like this:

I have a three tier filing tray. The top tray is for anything pending, filing, something interesting I want to keep, etc.

The middle one is for anything connected with my website.

The bottom one is for my current work in progress (though usually this remains sitting on my desk right in front of me)

The top tray was about four inches thick – it is now about half an inch. So that is good.

The middle tray has halved in size as well. A lot of stuff has been shredded. In fact it’s a wonder my shredder hasn’t stopped working due to overload. I was thinking about this – my shredder must be about twenty years old. It’s a Rexel – so three cheers for Rexel!

And the bottom tray is empty – oh, that’s because I’ve put everything to do with my book behind me on our grandson’s high chair (The chair lives in here with me because there’s nowhere else to put it. Ditto his box of toys. Ditto the treadmill.)

This is the most cluttered room in the house, but it’s also the one I feel most comfortable in. If I turn around and look behind me, my three bookcases are overloaded. Every now and then I send some books to charity but they still keep piling up.

This is my work room and I’m entitled to get it a little untidy when I’m working on a book. Which is most of the time. At least that’s my take on things.

Am I the odd one out here? Does everyone else keep their workplace as tidy as the rest of the house?

    You know if you bought a shredder these days it would probably die after a year. I envy you your 20 year old Rexel! It's amazing how those bookcases can get to quickly overloaded. My workroom is always untidy when I'm working on something. It looks like there's been a paper explosion at the moment but it's always nice to clean up even if it means next week it's going to be messy again 🙂

    Lacey, I agree anything made many years ago always lasts longer than newer ones.
