    A tidy office could be a sign of a procrastinating writer, or it could be just a sign of someone who felt they had to tidy up before they took the picture, in which case they’re probably even more slovenly than you.
    This is from the person who used to threaten your teenage self with all your possessions going in the bin, if your bedroom wasn’t tidied by Monday!

    Love, Mum x

    Completely agree re tidiness – too much of it is thoroughly suspicious! Great post!

    An empty desk signifies an empty mind ;). I love the cover of Cora’s Christmas Kiss, btw.

    Does straightening the post it notes count as tidy? I’m with you, Alison, slovenly = creative. 🙂 Thank you for a post that made me hoot. The poor agent! Beware a woman who tries to raise one eyebrow. Love it. Thanks for sharing, Georgia. 🙂 xx

    If only my writing cave was so well-ordered. Love the post, the idea of the room “saved . . . from an eternity of discarded white goods” and agree, once you’re immersed in a writing project, tidiness is an ideal state that can never be achieved.
