Our dear Belle wanted to see where it all happens, what our office space looks like. Well, that's one of those loaded questions. Sometimes you really do have to be careful of what you wish for because you may get it. In my case, you won't get as much of it because I couldn't load multiple photos. Be grateful.
My office is a mess. On the other hand, if I straighten it up I'll never be able to find anything. The other issue is that I'm convinced the moment I throw something away is when I will need it, if not immediately, then within 24 hours. That one never fails.
I photographed my computer, parts of my desk including my printer (I swear there's one under there somewhere!) and a couple of sections of my walls. I've never put up all of the awards and photos. Why should I? No one comes in here. At least no one who values life and limb. I never photographed the floor. Think: land mines. The piles of papers, reference books, etc., is as high as an elephant's eye, to quote a song lyric. There would be prize for anyone who could guess the tune and where it originated but I write so I can't afford to give prizes. LOL
The floor would be bad enough but Aimee (the Chartreux) likes to play in here and somehow I think the game is: Aimee Queen of the Mountainous Piles. They tend to slide with a 9 lb. cat on top of them. It's cheap amusement for the cat and a never-ended surprise of just how I'll pick my way through the debris for me each morning.
So, for those of you brave enough to look, there's a photo. Red Room wouldn't allow me to upload more than one. Using that tiny tree symbol doesn't work for me so I can only use the upload thingy. (Thingy is, of course, a technical term.) Be grateful. I don't think many people are up to seeing more than one photo. Unless, of course, you write thrillers.
