Mary DeMuth has a great article on the Master’s Artist today, Ten Things I’ve Learned as a Newly-Published Writer. It’s well worth checking out and thinking about.

And on a completely unrelated note, I’ve spent this week tearing apart my office, painting it, and rearranging it. These kinds of projects always start with something small. In this case, someone gave us a pretty cool desk. Since I had to move the existing desks around to get the new desk in, I thought, “Hey, I might as well paint while I’m doing that.” Then I decided to reassign the purpose of all three desks in the office since I was getting a new one. Which means shuffling computers and books and papers. And of course, once the painting’s done, and my new desk installed, I’ll need more shelves and a new desk lamp. Probably some sort of rolling cart since the desk has no drawers.

For all this effort, my new workspace better inspire some creativity.
