I keep colorful calenders, spreadsheets and computer print-offs near my desk. I go through them daily, recording important dates, websites and notes about marketing ideas to explore later. I am also a huge fan of colorful folders, highlighters and sticky notes. They are inexpensive, and they brighten my mind and manuscript.
Try to keep your workspace clean. If clutter gets out of control find an old dresser with deep drawers. These are handy for holding supplies such as extra pens, paper clips, reams of paper and ink cartridges. A tidy office is a productive office. Make sure all your supplies are sorted, and close at hand.
Whatever you’re passionate about try to incorporate into your writing sanctuary. I like to burn candles, listen to mood music and I always have coffee, or tea nearby. Fill your workspace with your favorite themes and visuals for a tailor-made space.
