Cleaning my writing studio

I’m currently in the process of trying to clean off my desk and reorganize my work space so that I can actually find things like the copious handwritten notes I’ve got buried in different notebooks or floating around on loose pieces of paper. I also need to clear a space on the wall for the map of Paris I bought on eBay, in order to help me visualize different locations for The Case of the Cunning Linguist.

To that end, I’m trying to inspire myself with a picture from the last time my desk was actually clean. This is what it looked like when we first moved in:

You can actually see that this desk is made of wood! Even my computer’s desktop looked so nice and clutter-free! And there was room for my cat, Ned, to sun himself in the window!

So, as I clean up this mess, why don’t you guys tell me: what does your writing space look like? (Pix, please!)
