I'd love to have an office, a space that was mine for writing in instead of the sofa with my laptop. It's never going to happen but writers are dreamers, right? So I've decided to put together a 'Dream Office'.
First of all I need a desk. I love the antique writing desks, with the roll down top and little cubbyholes and shelves. And drawers. I need drawers.
Also pretty important is a chair. I'd like a big, comfy chair that is pink. Pink is very important.
I'd also like a large bookcase, which among other books and because I'm daydreaming here, will be my published books.
Next up would be an extremely large noticeboard to pin my ideas and writerly inspirations. Maybe there would even be two or three.
I'm not sure why but I've always had a 'thing' about filing cabinets. I have nothing to put in one but that doesn't stop me coveting them. I'd even settle for a one or two drawer one. But not in my dream office. In my dream office it would stand tall and proud (I know, I know, I'm a fruitcake *hangs head in shame*)
So those are my essentials but of course I'm not finished yet. I need some stationery. Lots and lots of stationery:
And look at this fantastically tacky sellotape dispenser. I want it:
Where do you write? And what would be in your Dream Office?
