NaNoWriMo is here—well, almost—again! Here are some ideas to make your work area an inspiring space for that period, and beyond.

 

NaNoWriMo is a few days away. You may be ready, but can you say the same about your work area? If you need to get your desk organised and inspired for that month of intense work on your novel, these writing spaces may give you some ideas.

Friday Favourites: NaNoWriMo-Ready Writing Spaces

Favourite Pretty Writing Space

If you dislike clutter, then you and I are on the same page. I’m loving this clean, bright, organised desk space, with pretty personal touches. The gold lamp is a great accessory and reminder to always have good lighting, especially if your desk isn’t next to a window. I’m also in love with the wall art and its placement. Right in your face.

Favourite Home Library-cum-Writing Space

Your reading room or home library can double as a writing space. This room, for example, has the resources a writer would need, right at his or her fingertips. And when you need a break, have a cuppa while you relax in a comfy sofa.

Favourite Small Writing Space

Maybe you live in a small apartment. Find a spot and turn it into your designated writing area. Spruce it up with your favourite wall art and accessories. If you don’t have enough storage space, consider a hanging alternative, on your wall. Place a houseplant on a weathered desk to give it a rustic charm.

Favourite Writing Nook

The simplicity of this writing nook appeals to me. It also shows that almost any space, no matter its size, can be transformed into an area that inspires. And that mini lamppost is perfection!

Favourite Idea for a Writing Space

Keep your plot notes in your sightline while you work on your novel. Hang a corkboard or other wall mounting for your sticky notes and outlines. Use different coloured Post-its for characters, scenes, and structure. It’s a great visual way to keep yourself on track.

Favourite Chic Writing Space

If a sophisticated workspace is more your thing, then draw inspiration from this designer look.

Favourite Minimalist Writing Space

Minimalism doesn’t have to be boring. This workspace would meet the needs of a writer who likes to keep things simple, while still maintaining a pleasing aesthetic.

Nadine, I really wish I had this type of writing space for NaNoWriMo. I tutor academic writing and work at home, and I want to fix up my writing/working space. These spots are inspiring. I love the favorite writing nook photo you showed. I have the exact same standing light, so maybe I can do the same thing.

Hi Suzanne! Thanks for stopping by and reading. I’m glad that you found these workspaces inspiring. I know what you mean about wishing that you had them. I’m keeping them as references to update my own space. Let me know how things turn out when you fix up your work area. All the best with NaNoWriMo!
