"What's On Your Desk, Wednesday, Allison Pang?" Sassy Brit asks with an evil grin and camera poised...

Click the picture to have a nose around...I do!

My desk is a cluttered mess. Much like my life.

You’ll see multiple phones, books, children’s homework, crayons, a broken pen, manga, David Garrett DVDs, business cards, a Hello Kitty mousepad.  Clever people will even notice the cheerio on the keyboard tray, thanks to my thoughtful four year old. The picture doesn’t show the upper shelves – there’s a wacom tablet and a bunch of computer WoW boxes, some anime, my Kindle and three packs of Tarot cards.

There is a monkey skull and crossbones patch on my chair. The armrest is breaking down on the right side because I have a tendency to lean on it very hard.
I’ve cleaned it up from time to time, but it doesn’t take much to turn it into a complete wreck within a few days at the most. Part of this is lack of time. I work full time and have young kids. I have a limited time to write – mostly between 10 PM and 1 AM. I could waste that time on cleaning, or I could write. So, the clutter takes a back seat.

Part of it is just how my brain works, too. I don’t keep things tidy in my head when I write, and just like the desk, it can sometimes seem overwhelming. But for the most part, I really do know where everything is. (And yes, I’ve always been this way – my room growing up was much the same. So is my house sometimes.)
Sometimes things get lost.

To be honest, I find a clean desk to be far more distracting than a messy one. It’s pretty to look at for a while, but it’s empty.

  1. It looks a lot like mine. I don't have small children, but I do work a fulltime job that is an hour's drive away from my home, so I know exactly what you mean. Beleive me, if I could ride a bus or train I would. It would give me more time to write...or sleep.

    Pair my busy life with sharing my office with the love of my life who loves to collect all types of scale models and you get a room that barely has walking space. LOL

    As long as you're still writing and YOU know where everything is, it's all good. Keep up the good work.
