Messy Desk {Writer Wednesday}

I’ve been quiet on the blog. Last week I was sick, and I’m playing catch-up. With all the tasks piling up, I’ve let my desk get VERY messy. *sigh*

Here’s a picture of my work space. I think it’s funny my Bible promise book fell on top of the chaos. Maybe God is trying to tell me something!


Messy Desk


What you don’t see is the mug of tea, scratch paper with scribbled notes, cell phone, pens, ponytail holders and who-knows-what-else. The trash can is overflowing. Much like my brain and day-planner entries for this week.

This morning Β I’ll spend ten minutes organizing and tidying. I’ll push the papers into a neat stack. Throw away the baggies of pretzels and Chex Mix. Light a candle. Empty the trash.

And then I’ll mess it up all over again because that’s the kind of week this is!

Does your work space get messy when you’re busy? Or do you keep it tidy at all times?

Have a terrific day!

  1. My work/writing space stays messy most of the time. However, I do like to organize the piles every few days. πŸ™‚ My husband laughs because even though the area is messy, I can find anything in an instant. πŸ™‚ Hoping and praying you are feeling all better.

  2. I have to go stand in the corner. My workspace is cluttered ALL the time. One thing I am going to do during Lent is de-clutter my life–that means my house. I spent a bit of time today going through some my desk drawers. I was amazed at what I found and how old some of those papers were. As I said, I will go stand in the corner.

    1. Good for you! I’m standing in the corner with you. I have magazine clippings, scratch paper, IRS forms–you name it! They are everywhere. UGH! Best wishes as you declutter!
