on my desk monday

This is a cute new kitchen timer that I use while writing. I've been having a lot of back/shoulder soreness lately from being hunched over the computer so much that I decided to get this to use in the studio. I set it for an hour and every time it rings, I force myself to get up and stretch. The ticking noise was hard to get used to, but now it is kind of a white noise that blends away...

Great idea, and very cute. Where did you find it?

I love it!
When you write stories, do you draw the pictures along the way? I would probably write the story and then go back and see what needs to be illustrated.
I'm gonna start calling my favorite chair and laptop desk my "studio". Sounds so much more official than "my corner of the living room where I'm forced to be if I want to write".

I found this on modcloth but it's no longer there now--but I saw it on amazon, too.

Jillian, for me, usually write the whole story and then draw the pictures. I think "living room corner" sounds official!
