A Writer's Guide to the Perfect Work Space


Have you given much thought to the space you writer in?

My writing space is pretty simple:
  1. One desk
  2. One Chair
  3. One Computer
I don't have much room to move around in because my writing space is in my bedroom.  But I do have a relatively quiet space in which I work in.  Here is a quick guide to the ultimate home office for writer's:

Be More Ergonomic

This is a great place to start, how you display your computer:
  1. Top of your computer screen should be at eye level, this reduces fatigue.
  2. Your keyboard should be positioned so that your forearms are parallel to the floor.
  3. Your seat should be adjusted so that they're firmly resting on something.
Learn to Love Natural Light

If you're room has a window in it, use it.  The whole idea of working from home is to be free from the cubicle style work space that many people work in.  Make sure your desk is facing a window so you can look at the scenery and take-in the natural light.

Use Additional Lighting

In the dark winter months you'll need a lamp for the darker part of the day.  Try a table lamp with soft lighting and an interesting design, to give your space a personality.

Be Inventive with Storage

If you like to write on notepads then stacking boxes are a great way to store away all those notes you've been making.  Shelves for book storage or book cases.  If you need space for paper why not try a filing cabinet, it doesn't need to be huge just enough for your business needs.

Form a Creative Space

If you have the room why not create a space to let your creative juices really flow.  A simple coffee table, bean bag or chair and a lamp to help your thinking when you have a break.

Go Green

Add plants, because they make people happier, and some plants don't need to be watered that regularly.
