I’ve been tagged by Annette Gulati from The Writing Wild Life to post pictures of my writing space.
I’m lucky to have a room of my own, even if I’m constantly grumbling about the fact that I can never keep my desk uncluttered (picture here was taken on a clear segment of a day). No sooner do I tidy up all the mess than a child comes and dumps drawings, hair bands, reading books from school, school newsletter, toys, Lego blocks, dolls and what not. And when it’s not the kids, it’s my husband with business cards, files, bank statements, etc.
There usually is a big plastic crate full of picture books sitting on the floor next to the overflowing bookshelves, but for some reason, it’s not on these pictures.
Here is a view from the other side, with my daughters’ artistic works hanging on the wall and the big ball that I use as a seat (bad back).
I used to have a lovely view over the massive rock formations of Hyderabad, but the empty plot in front of my office windows is no longer empty : they built the ugliest three-story building, with walls practically touching the neighbors houses on both side. Look at the construction site on the other side of the French doors, in picture below.
See what I mean?
Still, I do have a little green outside my window, and I even occasionally spot a monkey that likes to walk along the white fence. I’ve wanted to snap a picture for the longest times, but that chap is always too fast for me, and soon disappears into the trees that surround the house.
Anyone reading this and wishing to participate, consider yourself tagged to post one or more pictures of your writing space.
