Today’s prompt: write about your desk.
And maybe share a picture with me on social media, if you like!
My desk is white and shiny, with shiny chrome legs. I wanted something sleek and modern and clean and bright.
On it is my MacBook on a stand, my large monitor raised up on Cassell’s Dictionary of Slang, and several containers filled with pens and pencils: a Golden Syrup tin, a black treacle tin, a flamingo mug.
There are several piles of books, a keyboard, a mouse mat and mouse.
A desk lamp with a marble base, on which is a photograph of me and Joe on our wedding day.
There's my giant bottle of water, just behind my three notebooks.
And in front of me are a couple of fidget toys, an origami crane I made, and a miniature book.
To my right, on the wall, is a flamingo hook containing my noise-cancelling earphones, and above it is a map of Ankh-Morpork.
I have everything I need in easy reach, and it makes me smile to sit here.
Your turn: set a timer for 5 minutes and write about your desk.
p.s. Connect with me on Instagram and share your experience with the community. Share your writing if you want to—we'd love to read it! Tag @tinybeetlesteps and follow the hashtags #moxieNOVEMBER and #tinybeetlesteps
