I imagine some authors have no clutter on their desk but I sure do. Partly because I pull out lots of books and papers when I write. And partly because I need more places to put all that valuable information.
But I have good news! I got a royalty check in the mail! So I'm celebrating by buying a filing cabinet. I ordered it today. It comes tomorrow!
Royalties are my percentage of each copy of BLUE my publisher sells. I get my royalty payment twice a year – the amount depends on how many copies of my book sold in the last six months.
I'm thinking it would be really nice to earn enough to hire someone to do some cleaning for me! But for now I'll just have to do it myself.
Cleaning and organizing really does help my brain work better.
Check back in a day or so to see how my desk looks after I put some of this stuff in my new file cabinet!
What does your desk look like?
