It’s the first Wednesday of December and time for the last IWSG post of the year 2018! The Insecure Writer’s Support Groups posts of their writerly insecurities every first Wednesday of the month, founded by Alex J. Cavanagh. Check out the group here.
This month’s IWSG question is fun:
What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?
1. My laptop
Also the instrument of my greatest distractions, my laptop is where I write in spurts.
I like to jot down my story ideas by hand on paper, so I have notebooks for separate story ideas and a small one for carrying around with me and jotting down ideas on the go. They live on my nightstand, right beside the recliner in which I perch.
Usually filled with either tea or water.
Said recliner is wedged next to a bookshelf, where my ever-expanding book collection is. I don’t re-read my books as much as I used to, but they are shelved right next to me and I can grab one quickly if I need to look something up.
5. Lin-Manuel Miranda candle
On my desk, less than a foot away from my recliner, there’s a lot of junk. But the Lin-Manuel Miranda candle is not junk, though I’ve never lit it. A friend bought it. I look at my Lin candle and and remember how much writing he gets done. My life is significantly less chaotic that his, so I can very well not play CandyCrush this one time and get some writing down.
