7 Clever Copywriters share their desks
Tidy desk, tidy mind?
I’m not sure I entirely believe in the old idiom, my desk is super tidy but my mind? Not so much.
Others argue that work amid a mess of clutter can actually make you more creative.
I asked some of the members of the Clever Copywriting School to share their desks and bravely they sent in their snaps.
(Oh and no meanness about the messy ones – this is a no judgement zone.)
“I clean my desk every morning, it’s a great way to faff around and stop myself doing real work.”
“I can only start the day with a tidy desk. By the end of the day it’s a different story.”
“Always start day tidy. Make sure it’s like this before close door at night. Then by end of day there’s likely to be post-it’s everywhere & notebooks open with ideas jotted down for various projects.”
Matthew Morgan Fenwick
“NB: the box under my desk is for my hopes and dreams.”
“It’s the only space in my house that my kids and husband don’t get to mess up (only I do!)”
Jenny De Lacy
“I have a thing about apples. I have a collection of them.”
“I am a messy desk person! Your desk freaks me out. Too tidy! But I’m very organised in my head and have never missed a deadline in my life.”
