Hi my friendlies!
The Mega MAKE BELIEVE anthology blog tour continues and today I’m thrilled to be hosting a sneak peek into the writing roost of my antho-buddy, author of LAST WINTER RED, Jennifer M. Eaton!
Jennifer Eaton lives on the East Coast USA with her husband, three boys, and a pepped up poodle. She hosts an interactive website www.jennifermeaton.com aimed at making all writers the best they can be.
Her Dystopian novelette “Last Winter Red” is available as part of the “Make Believe” Anthology from J.Taylor Publishing.
Her Christmas Romance “Connect the Dots” is available as part of Still Moments publishing’s “For the Love of Christmas” Anthology.
Both are available in ebook format from Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com and Smashwords
The psychotic nature of my life shows on my desk
I planned on cleaning up my workspace before I took this picture. But I figured “nah” let’s show it off as the mess it is. Believe it or not, this is ordered chaos. I know where exactly everything is. I think the reason it is so chaotic is because I spend so much time here.
There is serenity not shown here, though. On the back wall you can see one orange flower. These flowers are all over the room in singles like this, or clusters. If you’ve seen any of my son’s YouTube book reviews, you have seen the seventy-two gallon fish tank that’s in my office … and just outside the huge double window behind my chair is a trickling waterfall jiggling the lilies in my koi pond. It is actually a pretty serene place when I can keep my kids out of it.
The cluttered look of my desk, which is what Kelly was interested in for this post, really mirrors the clutter in my mind of all the day to day things I need to do, battling the stories that I want to write.
It’s controlled chaos.
And yes, once in a while I take those empty snack containers to the kitchen and refill them. You can never have enough munchies at your desk when you work.
What about you? Are you one of those “perfectly neat” people, or do you roll with the chaos?
Well, my friendlies? What say you? I tend to be neat, but have the ability to roll with the chaos, hehehe!
