In December I also like to clear my writing desk and make an attempt to look super organised for January (so far looking good as I can still see my writing desk—my desk at work is a lost cause, A1 plans take up a lot of space). This year I also took down two years’ worth of goblin notes which I’d stuck to the wall behind my desk. I also removed some paint in the process—woops. This was neatly covered up by new magnetic white board. My writing area is now looking fresh and clean…or was. I’ve already started accumulating notes about my new WIP.
I also declutter the study my husband and I share. There’s something cathartic about clearing away. I think in feng shui it’s about allowing the flow of energy. For me it’s about being able to sit my hot chocolate down without perching it on a pile of possibly important papers.
In case you’re wondering my year ahead is the six of cups: “Live in the moment, remember the past, dream for the future.” Good advice no matter the time of year.
Do you do anything specific at the start of the year?
