Writers are an integral part of any organisation. A writer’s workspace has to creative & can be done in various ways. Here are few tips for every writer, who wants to design a perfect work space:
De-clutter your workspace
- Create more space by de-cluttering. Clutter weighs on our minds, takes up space, decreases our motivation, and blocks new ideas and opportunities from coming into our lives.
- Time your cleaning, pick one drawer or a table at a time.
Change habits that create clutter
- Everything can be digitized now. Use sticky notes on your laptops for remembering important things.
- When deciding what’s clutter and what’s not, ask yourself three questions:
- Is this useful?
- Is this beautiful and/or inspirational?
- Is this loved?
- If the answer for all these three is a NO, then it is clutter. If yes, then find a place for it.
Remove or fix anything that’s broken
- If something in your office / desk is broken, ask yourself if you’re willing to get it fixed this week..
Anchor your purpose in your workspace
- If you have a purpose for what you are writing, then you feel more motivated.
- Create a mission statement, or an object that will drive you and motivate you to write.
- For example, an image of people your writing has helped or inspired.
Create a view
- If you sit away from the window or your office space does not have open spaces or windows, create an ambience at your desk.
- If you don’t have a good view from where you sit, create one with plants, artwork or photos. Select inspirational artwork that sparks your creativity.
- Use your desk to hold uplifting pictures.
Bring nature in
- Keeping plants on your work table will help you relax now & then.
- Consider adding plants, fresh flowers, or a fountain to beautify your workspace.
- You can choose to decorate with natural materials such as hemp, sisal or wood, or use visuals of nature to create a soothing environment.
