I’ve been working from home in various capacities for most of my adult life. Moving four times in five years has left me with an unsettled and hodge-podge organizational system. Juggling a book launch, a dozen creative projects and various writing and teaching contracts in an inefficient environment is affecting my ability to focus! Grrr.
I decided that for my work-at-home-life to actually work, I’d have to create a better space in which the magic can happen. I haven’t had a proper office purge and reorg since 1999. My “things” have been in temporary spaces for years and my filing system has been in transition since 2007. Time to GTSD.
Since I love me a good challenge and start a new contract in 3 weeks, I’ve given myself that amount of time to create that space of my own.
Baby and I have shared an office space for the past 3 years. Being in this boring, overstuffed space makes me sleepy.
Instead of sharing space, I’m making brand new digs and turning this historical landmark into my new homebase of creative awesomeness (official name forthcoming)
If there’s a domestic, creative, industrial project you’ve had on the back burner for months or years (or decades), why not join me in a 3 week summer challenge to remedy that?
