IWSG: Five Objects in my Writing Space

December 5 question – What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?

My writing space changes with the season. April through September, I wrote on my screened-in-porch, or, on really nice days, the picnic table by the lake.

When heat becomes necessary, I move to the kitchen table. No matter which space I’m using, my laptop is always there because it’s what I write on. For the sake of this list, I’ll focus on things unique to the space.

No matter where I am writing, Goose the Cat aka The Meowditor-In-Cheif, is near-by. He likes to the delete words. Nothing is allowed to be fluffier than him.

    I love your Meow-editor-in-chief! My cat thinks along similar lines. And, your summer writing spot does sound heavenly!
    Happy writing and life in December!
    BTW – I have a word press blog I hardly use, so head over to this other one if you want to visit: https://tyreanswritingspot.blogspot.com/2018/12/theiwsg-december-2018.html
    Sorry, about the messiness of that.

    Hadn’t thought of a seasonal aspect to a writing space, but then my space never changes much as it is always in the same location. My biggest changes come when I do some organizing and clean-up.

    Glad your cat is there to help! I use the same writing space no matter the season, but it’s a much happier space in the warmer seasons than in winter. I love writing with the windows open.

    I like your summer spot. Chuck it toys for the dog? Since your cat likes to help, maybe they are for him.

      All things belong to the cat, but he permits the dogs to use the chuck-its.

    Great lists – and seasonally sorted. Our kittens love keyboards, although more as a stepping stone/path to a place on the desk in front of the monitor – they are small enough to see past them. Unlike my dog who blocks it – she’s a Cavachon…and my muse so I don’t complain; even when she’s deleting/writing words in Welsh.
