At Ben’s request I said I would drop him a few pictures of my writing workspace, and give all the stalkers out there (yes you), a look at where I write.
Where Ben is the more laid-back writer with his couch, I am far more the arse-in-the-chair kind of scribe. That said my desk is strategically positioned for a view of our garden, and with a bird-feeder or two not far from the window, there’s plenty of distraction when needed. I tend to keep the desk as clutter free as possible, mainly because it’s quite a small workspace, but also it has to double as my “office”, when I’m working at home on the job that pays the bills (for those who didn’t know, I mostly write evenings and weekends). That said if you look closely enough you can see a few gizmos strategically positioned.
Normally you’ll also find one or both of our dogs keeping me company, that’s Wilson in the pic above. They are a source of great inspiration; or rather I get some of my best ideas when I’m out walking them.
About the Writer
When I’m not at home, I’ll write pretty much anywhere, and using anything to hand. If I’m intending to be somewhere other than home and write, I’ll have my laptop or iPad with me, but for those moments when a good idea hits and I’m sans tech, I almost always have a small notebook and pen to hand.
Alan Williams is a writer in his spare time, with a “day-job” to pay the bills and his writing expenses. Based on the South-Coast of England, he’s the author of the novella “Killer Bytes”, which he is currently turning into a full length novel following interest from literary agents.
You can keep-up with Alan in the following ways:
