My Messy Desk

I have written a guest blog for fellow writer Gabrielle Wang, who has asked a number of writers to write about where they write and how they write. So if you want to see a photo of my very messy desk, go to Gabrielle’s blog.

While you are their you can see how other writers such as Michael Pryor, Sue Lawson, Claire Saxby, Michael Gerard Bauer, Cath Crowley, Lili Wilkinson (my daughter), and Gabrielle herself approach their work. There are more to come I think.

  6. Hey Carole,
    I like your method of writing. I always try to write at least 2500 words a day. But for me it always works best at about 11 at night and it takes me about two hours to write them. On good nights I can write up to 4000-5000 words… but that’s a rare occasion! I am a bit like you though my writing desk (really my homework desk but meh.. same thing) is an utter war zone. I have notes stuck to the wall and desk with post-its, plot summaries and note books everywhere. With this and my family history stuff, people might call me unorganised but at least I know where everything is! 😉 By the way, I love your Dragonkeeper books!

  7. Shahan,
    You can see other books by me. I have written 17 books. Check them out by clicking on Books in the menu. Or by clicking on the coloured squares on the top left of this page.

  8. Nederlandszoon,
    That is a lot of words! I couldn’t possibly do that everyday. I need time to let the ideas develop.
    Glad you liked the books.

  13. Ziyin,
    I am not a movie maker, so I can’t do it. Movies cost millions of dollars to make. Someone else would have to make the movies.

    I am looking forward to publish it
