Sometimes, making space involves a little more effort or ingenuity. Piper Vaughn isn’t letting that stop the writing. I’m so on board with the reminder on that whiteboard. Also, hedgehog. Win.

“This is my work space. Our house is pretty small and I dream of one day having a dedicated office, but for now I’ve taken over a corner of the bedroom I share with my husband. My desk is in this corner and then over on the wall to my left is my dry-erase board, which I’m thinking of upgrading to a bigger size. I love using it for checklists or reminders or even for plotting out stories, but it’s not large enough to be very useful when it comes to that.
One drawback of having my work space in my bedroom is that when my husband goes to bed, I feel guilty about staying on the desktop and potentially keeping him awake. I often go to my laptop in a different section of the house – the den or the kitchen – to write in those cases, which isn’t very convenient because no other space is as comfortable for me to write in. But, when push comes to shove, I can write wherever I have to. Sometimes I write in silence, but usually I make a playlist for whatever book I’m working on and I have that going on in the background. :)”
