This is what my desk looks like right now.
I'm submitting a series of three essays. One is finished, and damn good, I think. Two to go, with a bunch of raw material to work from. Harder topics though.
I've been sitting nearly all day, playing chicken with words. When I couldn't stand any more hunching at the computer with the cat on my shoulders (that's where he's taken to lounging. I'll get a pic one of these days) I put on a jacket and went out into the freezing cold. The wind chill was brutal, but the sky was blue and it felt good to be out with my camera, feeling my lungs work and my boots crunch over frozen snow.
Now back to the second essay with some dark orange infused chocolate and perhaps some chai.
