How I Wish My Desk Looked . . .

How I wish my desk looked:

It's so beautiful it almost makes me okay with wax melting on books.

How my desk actually looks:

Is that last week's popsicle stick?

Reality is such a nasty mundane thing. I much prefer fiction. 

Please continue imagining me in a cave with lots of beautifully dripping candles surrounded by meticulously handwritten work that totally isn't just about to go up in flames.


  1. Your fictional cave is to be envied. (...all fire hazards aside.)

  2. My desk looks very similar to your actual desk too. Melting wax on books is almost sad, those poor books!

  3. Lol! "Is that last week's popsicle stick?" Too funny!

  4. Haha, that's how my desk looks, too!

    I'll imagine us both writing somewhere with more cave-like beauty (and perhaps some books that thrive under the influence of melting wax?)

    (Also, sorry if this is a somewhat is being funky today)

  5. Lol! I'm not sure it'd be a great idea to have all those candles around that paper (although it looks awesome). I don't have a desk yet, but when it does, I've got super plans. If that turns into reality, is a whole different question. But dare to dream! ;)

  6. Haha, okay, to appease you I'll imagine you're surrounded by beautiful, flickering candles and old parchment ;) My fantasy writing cave is something like that, although one time I tried to be all Jane Austen-y and write by candlelight, and let me tell you, it is a real beeyotch on your eyes!

    1. I tried that one time too. Couldn't agree more. But I feel like if you just got ENOUGH candles it would have to be bright enough, right?

      However, if you got enough candles your handwritten work on flammable foolscap might be in danger.

      Also, I love your username.

  7. If I had a fictional cave like that, I'd never stop writing!
