RTW -- My Ideal Writing Desk

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's topic:
What would your ideal writing desk look like? Right down to the perfect pen or laptop.

For the record, I don't even have a writing desk. I write on my bed with the laptop most of the time. But if I did have one, this would be my ideal one.

Desk:Because it is cool and awesome and it has drawers. With notebook paper, pens, ink cartridges, computer paper, gum, candy, and bookmarks.

Index Cards!
Because no revision session is complete without them.

This poster shall go above my desk. Also, if there is some way someone could invent a giant version of that electronic picture album that would be epic. Then it could be Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, that poster that has both of them, that new Deathly Hallows poster that just came out, and Prince Caspian.

Iced tea. Because no writing day is complete without it.

Minifridge/freezer filled with chocolate and tea and ice cream and snacks!

Then of course there is all the normal stuff like pens, pencils, paper, a printer, and a bag of chips that don't require a picture. Also my phone because despite the fact that I swore I'd never be like those people that have a panic attack when they're separated from their phone, I'm well on my way to being one of said people.

And finally surrounding me would be a giant bubble like the anti-Muggle one around the Quidditch World Cup that keeps away the Powers That Be so they can stop interrupting me while I'm writing. It also doubles to block out most outside noise.

What would your perfect writing desk be like?

I love the idea of a giant bubble surrounding the space so no one (Hubby) can interrupt. I NEED one of those!

Ice Tea! I should go get some right now since it's projected to reach 30C today...

I also have a MacBook Pro. I support the Mac > PC deal.

Note cards... Dr. Who... Mini fridge... If I ever find myself in a place like that, I'll think I've died and gone to heaven!
