My husband converted our guest room into my office space just in the nick of time. A few days after the redo, I received a slew of short-turnaround writing assignments. I have five articles due within the next eight days. I guess it’s a good think I love my new digs. (Note: Post pic we added a bookshelf with all my writing resources and a printer. Now I don’t have to run back and forth to the shared wireless.) Bring on the muse.

I am envious! I would love to have a desk in front of a window. Looks like a setting for success. Now, back to work! Congrats on your assignments.
Hi Cathy! It’s still a work in progress. My mom will be here in a couple of weeks, and I’m sure we’ll spruce it up.
It’s a start!
Consider yourself lucky. My ‘studio’ is still in the living room!
This looks great, Kirsten! And congratulations on all those articles!! Wonderful news! 🙂
It’s great practice. I know the more I write, the better I get. All writing is good practice. 🙂
Lovely, looks peaceful!
It is…until my five-year-old wanders in after school. 🙂
I love getting to see other people’s creative spaces. So nice that yours is in front of a window!
Yes, I love the window. That’s why the queen-sized guest bed had to go. I needed to be able to plop my desk right in front of the window.
Great space, and lucky you having assignments to do. I love that you’re right in front of the window. What’s out there?
My neighbor across the street has a bunch of horses. And I love to watch the birds: quail, kildeer, even the ravens.
What a lovely room! Great about all those assignments too, Kirsten.
I am feeling really lucky right now. I just need to do an extra good job… No pressure.
What a beautiful office! And congrats on all your assignments!
I’m very thankful, but also very stressed trying to make sure everything is just perfect.
AWESOME! When my room finally has shelves *hint hint DAD – Let’s get going!* I’ll be getting a desk in my library section of my room (very small 🙂 ) where I’ll write and such. 🙂
Erik, that will be such a wonderful, creative space. I think having the right “spot” makes a big difference.
