a tidy study is the key to...well...EVERYTHING

I spent all day yesterday tidying the study. Not just tidying. Re-arranging. Totally. I dragged everything out, hell, I even dusted. It's been on my weekend to-do list since, like, May. I'm happy I've got it done. I feel serene now. Look, look at how beautiful it is...


It's a lot bigger than it was before I moved all the crap out of it. And there is a bookcase (and a box of crap) that you can't see. And I had to get creative, my study has the novelty of being en suite, so I've used the space quite cleverly...



I feel now like I'm ready, I've tidied the study, I've re-jigged my spreadsheet, it's set for 75,000 words, which is 2500 words a day, (yes, I know NaNo is only 50,000 but that I did that last year so want to push myself a bit more. So 75,000 is my personal goal, with 50,000 being an incredibly acceptable alternative if I realise halfway through that I'm mental which is probable, apparently I was horrendous during NaNo last year, thanks for sharing baby, I love you too). So anyway, I'm fighting fit, I'm ready and prepared, my study is waiting for me...so it's only natural that I've spent all day avoiding the study. Well, I wouldn't want to mess it up before November 1st, would I?

Wow lady!! Nice one! Your study looks bloody brilliant! xx

Aww, it looks all cosy. Don't you find neatness equals mental clarity? Which is probably why my head's a mess at the mo (you should see my study/junk room).
I've always wanted to do NaNo but November's always hectic. I wish they'd do it in the summer instead.

Cally - it's so beautiful, I daren't go in it. If you come round within the next week it might (might!) still look like that!

Overdue - yes, I feel neat and ordered and serene. It's lovely. And there is no good time to do NaNo. You just have to do it, it's totally mental but it's awesome xx

Love your study. What are all of the pictures on the wall of? Hard to see in the photo.

They are Our Lady of Guadalupe. I got a calendar when I was in America a few years ago. I have a small obsession with religious memorabilia, my dream is to have a picture of Jesus with hologram eyes that follow you round the room...xx
