Thinking inside the box

Standard

So my new writing spot is so comfy-cozy I don’t want to leave. Took a while, some creativity, and a lot of repurposing, but it’s comfortable, the keyboard is a good fit (just goes to show expensive isn’t always better) and my chair is settling in nicely.

All I need are the words.

Typing is still fun today, for some reason there were more arms in the workout this morning, leaving me wondering if the Daily Burn people ever need to use their arms during the day? Maybe not. Maybe they’ve moved to an all-foot lifestyle.

They must have adroit toes.

Often with writing we talk about mood and frame of mind, and both can have a real effect.

So can fingernail length so excuse me, I’m going to trim mine. I’ll be back.

Ahh, that’s better. I guess with this keyboard, they really make a difference.

Back to mood. With this armoire desk, I’ve discovered we can help to create that mood by making our environment inviting. I want to sit here, I feel creative here.

Score.

Hope you have an amazing Tuesday!

Monday Mondaying up the joint.

Standard

And a good Monday to you. Especially if you’re feeling the same way about it I am, which is…unenthused.

I did get a new keyboard, though, and I’m trying it out right now. I think once it’s had a little wear, it will be pretty nice. I can use it on the keyboard tray as opposed to my lap, which is good. It’s a super cheap one, and it’s pretty loud and clicky, but who’s going to complain?

I can pretend I’m speeding away on an old-fashioned typewriter.

A debate over whether to have a second cup of coffee materialized into a second cup of coffee. I don’t regret it, at least not yet.

We’ll see how I feel when I’m wide-awake at midnight.

I got my additional power cord, so now I don’t have to carry it back and forth. My little desk office is pretty much complete, though I may get a gel wrist rest or cover thing, the edge of the keyboard tray has nice wrist support but edges.

I’m hoping this week will have lots of writing, though it will also have lots of folding of laundry, again. It’s strange how you have to keep doing that.

And off we go. I hope you’re having a perfect start to your week, but if you aren’t, feel free to complain about it.

#WednesdayWisdom of keyboards.

Standard

My lamp has arrived! The only lagger is my chair. Oh my lovely, lovely chair.

And probably another keyboard because this one and I are still having issues. Many, many, many issues.

I’m trying the laptop keyboard on the keyboard shelf instead…maybe it’s better?

Not totally sure.

Perfect keyboard, I know you’re out there.

Somewhere.

But the lamp is warm and inviting, I’m a big fan. You can change the color of the light, too.

I know the perfect set-up is close. Very very close.

I did have some hand/wrist pain yesterday after using the other keyboard, and I thought maybe it’s just a matter of getting used to it, but I think the hunt is on for another keyboard.

I’m sure you’re fascinated with this endeavor.

You may or may not know, it’s incredibly cold here today, and it looks like a tundra outside. Barely any cars, ripples in the bright snow…of course it’s beautifully sunny. A sun with no warmth, but sunny.

Hopefully this will be comfortable enough to get some writing done, we’ll just have to see. I hope you’re having a warm and cozy Wednesday, unless you’re in a hot-weather climate, in which case, your foresight is admirable.

Writing Is More Fun with Toys

Standard

So I got a new writing toy. Is it crazy-exciting? No, it is not, but I think it’s going to be very, very useful. I got an adjustable table that slides under furniture, so I can now write pretty much anywhere I want.

And it’s a “TV Item,” so you know it’s fancy. It’s this table, though I only saw it in black, it would have been nice in white, but it’s not as though I got it for its aesthetics. Nope, I got it for hours of typing comfort. And because it was gadgety. Maybe mostly because it was gadgety.

Also I love how, lower on the page where they show the other products you can buy — very helpful things like a mold to make bowls made out of bacon — the have a cat toy they inform you contains a set of 1. I mean, if it only has one in there, do you really need to call it a set? Doesn’t a set require more than one?

These deep thoughts are the things I can now ponder from extreme typing comfort from my not-pretty but entirely useful adjustable table. Of course, now I’m curious as to the other indispensable items I could find on the site, like a knife that has a guide for even slices, or a deluxe evening gown fleece robe “Snuggie Up.”

Is it just me, or does it look like Aunty Ida got a job on the side?

Anyway, enough amusement shopping. On to writing. After I just browse a couple more pages.
