Wow.

I notice that there are several of those post-its that are stuck on top of other post-its. I wonder how many of those top post-its say "Throw this post-it away."

That would be a fun system until my kids walked in a redecorated.

Oh, man. Imagine if someone opened a window...it gives me chills just thinking about it.

Jen Holling said...

OMG. O.M.G.

Rene said...

I ran from the room screaming. Are you happy now?

Kelly Parra said...

Holy crap...maybe I'm not a real writer!! :O

And that's why I use things like Mind Manager. If I didn't, my office would be covered in chicken scratches. At least I can have a messy mind map and it's not affecting anyone else. ;)

I've got a lot of paper like that, but it doesn't stick to anything. It's VERY vulnerable to fans and sudden breezes. I guess that's what drawers are for...

This writer certainly must live alone...

Ironically I had Will Self's Book of Dave in my hand yesterday. I'm trying to work up the extra energy to read it!

Therese - based on how much work he's put into writing it, it's either going to be a real easy read or a real tough one!

Therese Walsh said...

Oh, I'd wager it's tough, tough, tough. He created a dictionary for his book to help readers get through it. (He created a futuristic language that's tough to de-code.) But the premise is awesome.

That's wild. It's a battle of time against fading stickiness.

KG said...

Now I feel better about my own desk and monitor — I'll never use that many post-its EVER. Impossible.

He must not have pets or let children of any age or practical jokers in that room. He probably also can't sneeze in there.

Oh my. Wow. Then again, I will need to decorate my office when the house is done *g*.
