What Does My Desk Look Like?

I love seeing other writers’ set ups, where they work, what little items they have on their desks, the beautiful books they fill their shelves with … basically, I spend way too much time scrolling through Instagram pictures of other people’s bedrooms, an act which sounds so much worse put down in print.

Full disclosure, I usually spend most of my writing time either bundled up in bed or outside on the porch, but these pictures of my desk are too pretty not to share.

Why, yes, I do have way too many Funko Pops. The three-tiered magnet board has a post-it note outline of one of the books I’m writing!

A close up of the desktop! The little silver door is one of my favorite possessions, as is the canvas painting my friend Carina made for me with the name of my Fantasy series on it! (She has a society6 shop, btw, and is a crazy talented artist.)

And, lastly, here’s a picture of my very favorite bookcase in the world:

The top shelf is a rainbow-organized shelf of all of my very favorite novels (that could fit on this shelf, admittedly). Then we have Harry Potter, Patrick Ness, and Stephen Fry. And the bottom shelf is all reference books related to writing and printed out revision copies of my own work!

Have you ever blogged about your writing set up? Link me in the comments, or else, tell me what your desk looks like, and where you like to write best!

    I’m SO HAPPY that you’re back! I missed you! And your desk is #goals. It’s so perfect. It’s the type of thing I would pin on Pinterest again and again and share with all my loved ones and dream about at night. =)

    Congratulations in getting into UCLA! I hope you enjoy it there and learn all the things. 😀 (English majors are the best, btw.)
