I absolutely write more smoothly when my desk is nice and clean. It keeps me focused on the words and the story flowing out. So before I began NaNoWriMo I completely emptied off my desk and cleaned it. It made a big difference to me! I even cleaned off the bookcase beyond the desk so I didn't have clutter in my line of sight.



Doing a desk organization is a great thing to do no matter what writing project you're embarking on!

It's well worth the relatively short time it takes smile.

Do you write better with a clear desk?

I do write better with it clean. And it isn't. So far I've managed half my word count for the day. Maybe a break to clean up is in order.

Thanks for the reminder!

There you go Alice - just don't spend too long cleaning. Sometimes we can seek out distractions smile. Do enough cleaning to make the writing go more easily, and then get the writing done!

Clutter is my besetting sin.
