My author cave


Never mind the sunlight. It’s October in Oregon, and I have to pretend it’s raining.

Here are a few things you’ll find in my home office author cave:

  • Much-marked world map
  • Buttons with sayings I like, such as “I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person” and “I’m a HEROINE ADDICT: Lover of Strong, Kick-Ass Women”
  • Coffee mug
  • Headphones (for listening to Performance Today since I start working while my wife and kids are still asleep)
  • Bullet Journal (current notebook: a green, pocked-sized, ruled, hard-cover Moleskine)
  • Files for clients and projects
  • Art from my 3-year-old son
  • Pictures of my wedding day and my 2 kids
  • Lots of books on business and the craft of writing, including Stephen King’s On Writing, John Jantsch’s Duct Tape Marketing, and Laura Wattenberg’s┬áBaby Name Wizard (seriously, it’s great for figuring out character names)
  • My limited-edition, state-of-the-art standing desk, cleverly disguised as a milk crate. You can probably find something just like it for a thousand dollars at some pretentious modern hipster store.

And now, back to work. Deadlines this week, y’all.
