No, this is not my home office. Close, but not. The point here is that the desk is clear and ready to be worked at. I have been working a lot lately - too much, but the rent and the bills need to be paid. I have it down now so I can take one whole day a week off - and that I spend cleaning house. I can do errands, grocery shopping etc. on any day, and still put in a full day at work.
How can I do this? I work from an office in my home. Working all but one day of the week, I tend to leave out on my desk my phone (a land line that is only used for my phone readings), a deck of Tarot cards (the Morgan-Greer is my reading deck), and a stack of templates to write basic caller information on. And more than occasionally my sixteen pound Orange Tabby, Pumpkin. (No, I did not name him, my mother did!)
I do the usual Internet work - checking e-mails, and my social media sites, writing this blog, and a flash fiction blog. My co-author and I are in the editing stages of a book on spirituality, and I have my own mystery book in process. What I finally recognized is that I needed a clear desk when not doing phone line work. So now I clear my desk each night so that I can do other work in peace.
A small action, with great meaning!
