Writer's Workspace: Lacy Williams and giveaway

This week PHS takes a sneak peak into where Love Inspired Historical author Lacy Williams creates her books and she is giving away a copy of her latest.

My workspace is scattered all over our house. I spend my days chasing around a 2-year-old and 8-month-old, and most of my writing time is during naptime or after their bedtime.

Mostly, I park with my laptop on the couch. Sometimes, I have to kick my canine writing buddies off. Sometimes we snuggle. :) Often if I need to get something done while playing with the kiddos, I will use the wireless keyboard and get right down on the floor with them.

Here’s one of my shelves of research books. Yes, I said “one of”, and yes, it’s bulging and needs to be reinforced. I am an admitted research junkie.

Here’s the messy end table I’ve been using as my catch-all. I keep notebooks, a calendar, my current RWR or JOURNAL there. Often I’ll have Donald Maass’s WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL WORKBOOK open there, too. And lots of pens. I’m a pen junkie, too.

I don’t do storyboards, but I use my whiteboard all the time. A good writer friend and mentor (and RITA finalist!), Linda Goodnight, does a circular graph of the hero’s journey when she’s plotting her stories and I’ve pirated her idea, so I’ll often have circles in the middle of all my brainstorming/plotting notes.

My writing workspace pretty much reflects the rest of our home—messy, but we mostly know where everything is. And living with a two-year-old, how much more can you really expect?

Thanks for letting me visit today!
