Can you believe it’s November? Every year I psych myself up to participate in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for the initiated, but even though I start with the best of intentions, the month always gets away from me. I don’t blame it on my talent or general stick-to-itivness, of course. Clearly the problem is my lack of a functional writing space. A room of one’s own, if you will. Or at least a desk of one’s own. Like this breathtaking vintage leather top desk from 1stdibs.
This classy-yet-sassy little number is a French piece from the 1970s that still has the original leather top and brass detail. It’s been lacquered a delicious kelly green, and is straight from a Beverly Hills estate. Quite a history, no? If this desk could talk! I’m certain the desk’s interesting pedigree would inspire me to write an equally interesting novel while sitting at it. Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Tell me in the comments! (Maybe we’ll all find writing buddies there.)
